a little reunion

Today was a joyful reunion with old family friends. Dick and Jeanne Taft are here visiting their kids and grand kids. We all met at Mimis cafe in Torrance for breakfast, his daughter "Vickie" came along. We had a good time reminiscing about the good old days and wishing we could all turn back the years. Remembering the good time we shared when we all lived in Lawndale, Dick and I shared the duties of Boy Scout leaders while Jeanne and Anita (my dear departed wife) took care of girl scouts.
Here we are forty plus years since we were all in good health and enjoying watching our families grow. Now Dick is dealing with a pace maker, diabetes, and recoving from prostate cancer, I've had surgery on both ears, back surgery and a new hip. We may not be able to hike the mountains like we used to but the story telling is just as good.

  1. Hey, you didn't tell me that you were going to see Uncle Dick and Aunt Jeanine today! I'd have come for breakfast. :(
