We had guests from Vermont. Old friends of mine...hadn't seen them in 30 yrs. Isn't it funny how you can get together with people, that you haven't seen in so long...and just pick up like you've never been apart? My friend, Margie, has just retired and she and Bill are making a trip to the Midwest to visit all their old friends. They are visiting Frank Lloyd Wright homes also, and they stayed at a Bed and Breakfast farm in Hampshire that was designed by FLW. They brought us a gift of Vermont maple syrup. We'll have pancakes on Saturday morning.
They had never met my husband and they got along so well. Margie retired from her job as a nurse practitioner and Joe retired as an Rn, so they had lots in common. Good conversation all evening. We did touch on politics....we try to avoid this usually, since hubby and I are on opposite sides. By our conversation, you would never know who they supported, but when leaving Bill said jokingly..."Better not let Joe see the back of our car." I joked around and took Joe's hand and led him to the back of the car. Who's name was on the bumper sticker??? Barack Obama. They never mentioned him at dinner, so Joe didn't know their choice. We laughed and laughed about that as they were leaving. We had such a good time with these friends of mine and now Joe's too. We wished them a safe trip. I hope that we see them again someday.
