When I was around 7 years old, my dad took me to an auction sale. I have no idea what he was buying,
but after I got my bag of chips, I wandered off. Pretending to be Anne of green gables. On a new farm for
the first time. Unsure of my future. Wishing for a bosom buddy.
When she appeared. My Diana.
I have no idea what her name is now. But she was my auction sale friend.
It was kindred spirits at first sight. We played all afternoon. Ran through fields.
Picked flowers. Pretended we were the belles of the ball. Hit up our dads for more
fries&gravy money. and laughed. I remember we mostly laughed.
We exchanged mailing addresses and promised to write. But little girls are fickle creatures,
and we most likely lost the addresses before we even got home. But that is no matter,
auction girl was important to me.
When I first met Gladys in California, I felt the same way. There was just something about her that I was drawn to.
Something that made her special to me. Something that told me that we would be friends.
This time, I wont lost her address. Afterall, we have facebook to keep us connected.
It could be her easy & lovely laugh, or her sparkly eyes. Or both. But the fact is,
I thinks she is awesome.
She is getting married in a vineyard in california next year. In 364 days.
She is going to be a beautiful Bride. I am so happy for her!
