>Today, while on his way home from Corpus to Dallas and old friend stopped by for a visit. We arranged it of course. He was my best friend back in elementary shcool and lived next door. His parents got divorced and they moved away at the end of fifth grade. My life changed so much when that happened. I haven’t seen him in probably 30 years. I found him by calling his father’s phone number which I found in the phone book and he relayed my message. We spoke on the phone last year and I sent him a few childhood pictures via email over the time between.
He arrived with his two children. He is now getting a divorce. As I’ve always said, “Marriage is the first step towards divorce.” It appears I am right. It’s a good reminder of why I am better off alone.
Anyway. It was really good to see him again. We got him a tour of his old house next door to my mom’s. I know he enjoyed that. It had changed quite a bit since he moved out. I can’t think of much else to say other than I enjoyed his visit quite a lot. It’s likely I’ll never see him again but you have to take what you can get.
It was a good day.
