Following my husband's death in 2008, I moved from Tennessee to Florida to look after my parents. Now I'm living in a retirement community, making friends and trying new things. The most fun I've had has been ballroom dancing. So far, I've taken intro lessons in all the dances and now I'm starting intermediate. I hardly have time to read anymore but I manage four or five dances a week!

Catching Up with Old Friends

Sunday, I visited with a girlfriend from college.  She was a freshman during my senior year but we belonged to the same sorority.  We recently reconnected through Facebook.  My memories of Dale are that she was particularly kind and thoughtful.  I must say, time has only improved her character.

She was down here in Ocala visiting her mother and was looking through the OTOW phone book looking for a particular name.  She ran across mine and wondered if I could possibly be the same person.  I found her email at the end of the day just before I was going out for the evening so I emailed back that indeed I was.  Her Mom just happened to live two blocks away.  We arranged to meet and visit on Sunday afternoon.  I met her Mom, then Dale came over to my house for a little while, we walked my dogs around the block and then she met my Mom and Dad.  A truly lovely afternoon.
