We Partied Like it was 1985

A long time ago, in a magical place which may look a hole in the wall bar to most people, strong friendships were formed..
Some of us are not walking this side of the topsoil any more.
But all of us who can answer when the call goes out.
It's time to come together.
So we came.
some of us drove for three hours, some for five.
We used to bring our children
Now we find someone to watch out for our parents
And we tell the kids we can't keep the grand babies this weekend.
It was Steve Peacock's birthday.
We have spend 30 of those together
.
We laughed
we ate
We drank
We wrapped ourselves in the love we have for reach other.
I deleted the skinny dipping pictures....all that wrinkled flesh.....

Hope your week brings you just as much happiness! Take care of you and yours! P.S. I'm trying to send you something via e-mail, but I think all those in the AOL mail room have gone on vacation!

looks like a great time. Skinny dippy with my body I would scare everyone out of the pool and onto the next planet.

Marti, I didn't see any wrinkled flesh. Skinny dipping still feels good, at any age. Your friends around the pool remind me of our friends around their pool. I haven't known them 30 years, but just the same, when she calls to say "we're going to sit out by the pool, come over." or "It's his birthday, come over." or "We're having a bonfire tonight, come over..." whatever the call is, we are there. Yes, your circle of friends look like mine! Love the photos. What treasures lie in these friendships. You seem to be enjoying the summer vacation. bea

1985 was a pretty fun year for me....what I can remember anyway.  Some parts of that time are a little "fuzzy".  ;)

Sounds and looks like a great gathering, worthy of a poem.  It helps to have fun once in a while, and then we can go on.   Gerry
