".......Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass "

.....Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a park bench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy"


One of my nostalgic `Simon & Garfunkel' (Paul Simon) songs....




with a few variations......have a great day GrinGrinGrin

The firs two for me, Jeff. Too trustable a friendship, you can even do your crossword while he speaks to you. A great catch!

There is only one problem having old friends.
Sometimes they can ask you for a loan of money !!
