You know you've made a true friend when time passes and you don't interact every day, but when you do get together no one skips a beat. You just pick up like you saw each other yesterday. Not only do you not skip a beat but you laugh and laugh and laugh some more. No one is even telling a joke. You just laugh. I do enjoy the "Remember when's. . . .remember this or remember that. . remember him . . . . remember her. . " When there is a pause in conversation it's OK. . It's not uncomfortable. I don't feel like some one needs to fill the silence. The conversation eventually just picks up. Love old friends. We haven't seen our good friends from California for almost 3 years and while life has changed our friendship is still the same. Last night we left the little ones home and had a little excursion to the city. I don't remember the last time Tim and I went out with another couple. Good times and good memories. Thank you Thank you to our good friends.
