Blast From The Past

I had the strangest call the other day from an old friend.
When I say "OLD" I mean I have not seen or spoken to this person
since we were 7 years old!

My family lived in Billings, Montana at the time then
moved to Kansas when my parents separated.
Ginny and I never got to say
goodbye and have been in each others thoughts
ever since.

How my very first and very best friend Ginny managed to
locate me after 3 name changes and 40+ years is an
amazing and wonderful thing.

PJ said...

No she found me by tracking down my father who not only has fairly common name but has lived in another state for many years.

Now, THAT is truly an amazing feat! Did you get a good chance to catch up on each other's lives then?

She has a tremendous amount of patience and God luck to find you over so many years and distance.
