Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Have you experienced one of those magical times when you meet long-time friends you haven’t seen in a long time and it’s as if you had never been apart?

Yesterday we drove over to Llano Grande RV Park where we spent the first seven winters of our RV life. We had been invited to a “Happy Hour” at the winter home of some friends and immediately saw another couple of very close friends we haven’t seen for a long time.

Needless to say, hugs were exchanged and animated conversation began, never waned, and continued as we shared dinner at a great Italian restaurant. Numerous times wonderful memories were recalled as we caught up on each other’s lives. It was a magical evening for us as we parted with our friends by sharing hugs and hopes that we will see one another again soon.

We must thank Jan & Tom for planning this event and thank our friends, Heinz & Irene, Linda, and new friends Ron & Janet for helping to make the evening a fine experience. We wish our long-time friends could meet the current friends we have because they are all wonderful people.

We did have one little hiccup during the evening. The waiter returned my credit card informing me that it had been declined three times. Fortunately I had cash enough to pay for the fine dinner and the tip. As soon as we were back home I called my credit card company and they took some time to verify that I had a pending purchase for that meal, but also said that the card machine used was having problems. They also assured me that my card was fine and ready for use.

It was a nice way to bring that day to a gentle closing and I can only say that Life is Good!
