Today was awesome! I got to see Nancy, my friend from college 30 years ago!!! Linda and I met her the first week of school, September 1982, at University of Delaware. She is one of the nicest people I know, and can make me laugh at the drop of a hat. When I flew back to school in January of 1983, she and her Dad came to the airport to get me, had me spend the night at their house, and then we drove down to school. I’ve never forgotten their kindness and while Christmas cards are great, I couldn’t wait to hug her. And meet her husband and daughter!
We had lunch at Ellen’s Stardust Diner, a tourist draw that I really wanted to see, and Nancy was kind enough to agree to. The food was beyond bad, but the company was stellar. The staff are all future hopeful Broadway stars, so they take turns singing, walking the floor or hopping up on tables. After lunch, they showed us around the area, then I had to hug Nancy good-bye. It better not be 30 years before we see them again. COME TO OREGON!
