Our phone rings about two times per week. People here don't usually call each other. They just stop by. (took me awhile to get used to that!) So we were surprised when it rang at 9pm last night. Our first thought, because we are at that age, is that some friend or relative died. But, no, it was not that type of call.
It was our friend D from Conneticut who comes down every winter for a few months. He was checking to make sure we would be around if he comes down to visit. We will be, but even so, we would have cancelled any plans to be able to visit with him. Especially when he announced that he would be happy to bring a new computer down to B! And also any little things that we might want him to pick up for us.
Friends. We have been very fortunate our entire lives to have good ones. And the call last night was just another example of how good they are.
He isn't coming for another 10 days or so. I guess we can continue to share one computer until then!
