Friend Reconnected

Ah, the post is late due to a long day yesterday.  Travel from Southeast Iowa to Minneapolis, this driving mostly on two-lane state highways.  My home state still feels like home and I was able to spend a bit of time with my sister, nephew and brother-in-law.  Iowa sweetcorn and pork eagerly consumed. 

This picture is on the road and the rain was as heavy as promised in the pictures.  The new top was tight - no leaks. Yes!  The wipers though, could not keep up.  But the rain eventually ended and gave way to perfect roadster weather which I surely relished.

And here is a town after the rain -  tiny town with a big name.  The town slogan is "Where the River Runs North".  OK.

And most importantly - I spent last evening reconnecting with a friend of 32 years that should never have needed reconnecting with.  We all have them.... fine people that we grow apart from due to life, kids, marriages, moves........ Tragic really.  No more.  We talked about life and love, kids and craziness, marriages and remarriages, moves and movies...... and challenges, and sadness, and joy --- but mostly we laughed.  And laughed.  And laughed.  Sorry about the missing years, Mary.... won't happen again.
