Old friends are the best

I was happy to spend time with old friends this week, starting with brunch at the Best Motel for Chuck’s birthday – great to have time to chat and catch up with him. Monday, Ann came to the condo and we literally talked non-stop from lunch to 8:00 PM – just wonderful! John also showed her how to roast coffee:

Tuesday I met Jackie and Sonya at the Ukrainian crepes place (yummy), then caught up with my high school friend Kelly at Trejo’s on the Lake – we hadn’t talked basically since high school! Wednesday Mary came for dinner and to spend the night; we had a wonderful time with her. Friday I went to lunch with Kathleen, the deputy director at the Arkansas Passport Center, one of the few Department of State civil servants in Hot Springs.

The week was topped off by a visit from our good friend Rick who we worked with in Islamabad – he drove up from Corpus to spend the 4th with us. We yakked on the balcony all day yesterday, then hit downtown today to see the sights.

The fabulous PeeWee dropped off homemade bread and other goodies for us to enjoy yesterday – thank you, PeeWee!
