It is very funny how things fall into place. Someone we knew and hadn't seen since we left Chicago in 1988 recently contacted us on Facebook, a few months back. We randomly kept in touch.
Suddenly they wrote that they were coming down for a few days starting Sunday. As luck would have it, I was off Sunday and we decided to meet them.
About as spontaneous as it gets. The catch was that it would have to be short and sweet because we had work the following day. The drive took 2 1/2 to 3 hours each way. We went out for some pizza and with the chit chat that followed you would have thought we had been doing this every week! We were there for about 6 hours, so by quick, I do mean quick. They were happy to see us and pleased that we made the effort. It does prove that nice people are always nice no matter how long it has been since you saw them.
Sometimes life can hand you a good surprise. How about that, a great weekend.
Thank you C and D for the great time.
