I thought this was funny a few years ago when I got it in the mail.....kinda looked like a "WANTED" notice! (not my address anymore)
Lemme just ask a stupid question...if all of a sudden, a bunch of people from your past contacted you in a weekend, would you think, I never thought I'd EVER hear from them again...maybe this is a sign I'm gonna die.......
Thursday I got a call from my very first friend's mom...like I was about 3 or 4...they lived down the street & around the corner. My two big brothers were friends with all 5 of her brothers after we moved to town...yeah...there were 8 kids, and I remember the mom walking past our house every morning about 7 am, headed to mass. I remember my mom saying something about if she had 8 kids, she'd go to church every day too! Now all the 'kids' are scattered all over the world, a few are still in town, one lives out in Scottsdale, so Bro hangs with him & his family when he's out there, some live in Florida, One brother lives in Amsterdam, for heaven's sake! There was always something exciting going on at Chris's house, with all those big brothers & sisters! One time one of the brothers brought home a raccoon, & they named it 'Reefer the raccoon'...us 5 year olds had no clue what that meant...:-/
Friday night I got another email from Kevin 1, from 30 years ago...still haven't hooked up again, but, it'll happen...
Saturday night, I got a FB message from somebody I used to be terrific friends with 27 yrs ago...I remember that cuz she's my first husband's little sister! I im'd my phn number & she called me & we talked for about an hour & a half! She & her husband live in N C now, but they're moving to Wyoming next week! I've missed her!!
Sunday night, I got another FB message from a guy that used to hang out with "our gang" in Fostoria. He was always one of the nicest guys I knew...and that's not a bad thing...nice guys don't always finish last...only if they're passive & timid! One time we were all at a bar about 50 miles from my town, and 'Bart' got so plastered, I wouldn't let him drive home to his house (30 mi away from the bar), so I loaded him in my car with me & brought him home with me (Tif was at Gramma's for the night). When we both woke up Sunday morning, we got in my car & went back up north to the bar we had left his car at...that was some fun times! Now he's married and has 6, count em, 6 kids!!! I couldn't help it, I had to rag him about all the kids...(no sleep, huh?) He said, I was just doing it for fun...and she took it serious!!! No, they're very happy, married for 21 years, etc! He's gonna make Mousie come down here soon, he said.
