"Old Friends"

By cats_123  
".......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!

Fortunately I still have way to go before I reach 70, but sadly I can see myself heading towards that park bench................. Well observed!

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

They both look puzzled to me, Jeff Wink
I think you and that dentist have got some sort of relationship going..?!
V1 for me, 'cos they're not Jamaicans - or Martians WinkSmileGrin
