Catching Up With An Old Friend

Spend a very pleasant 40 minutes or so walking down Memory Lane yesterday after meeting up with an old friend in a mall food court - we worked together at one of my earliest jobs, I'm pretty sure I wore shorts and a beanie cap when I went in for my shifts back then.

Amazing how after not seeing each other for likely about 30 years (!!), there was not a moment lost throwing out old names and wondering where some of our colleagues may have gotten off to on their own roads of life. Surely a few must have crammed some skeletons into their closet, like becoming a local politician, or staying on to this day at that family restaurant chain??

She also was present for one of my lapses of judgment many years ago. We were both leaving a party years (and years) ago, and I was moving music gear down to my car. Left a cheap Fender knock-off guitar in the lobby of a condo block. When we got back down with the rest of my gear, someone had stolen my guitar!

However, the icing on the cake is that the thief was no fool - once they discovered it was an inexpensive copy of a real guitar, they placed it back in the same exact spot, the next day - where I found it when I got back home from a shift at work!

Hard to believe it has been that long already. I mean, I was there when fire was discovered and all, but still - time flies.

Especially when you are catching up after such a long time.

Great seeing you Manon!

Very cool! Always good to relive those "remember when..." days.
