It Seemed Like Old Times

Do you remember the post I did
a few weeks ago about
the friend I thought I had lost?
Well, tonight we had dinner
together.

Mr. Magpie and my youngest chick
went along with me to the
nursing home for dinner.
It was family night!  Most
of the residents had family
members join them
for a Jambalaya Dinner.
Lots of Mardi Gras
decorations  and
good food.

After dinner we went
back to her room for
a little quiet visit.
She taught me to knit
some 40 years ago.
Wanting to give her
something to occupy her mind,
I brought her some
Sugar and Cream Yarn
to knit some of those
great dish cloths!
The needles I brought
her were some she
had shared with me
all those many years
ago, when she taught me
the art of knitting.

I had found some
very nice pillow slips
and we brought those
to her as well.
Jaybird, (my youngest)
put the pillow slips on
the pillows, while
I cast on the first
stitches for her.

We talked, giggled
and she shared
some stories of
growing up in England.
Mr. Magpie
left the room at one
point, too much giggling
I guess.
My friend looked at me
and asked, if he was good
to me.  I shook my
head and answered,
"Better than I deserve."
She looked at me
and said,
"Yes, that is probably so"!!!!!

Only a true friend,
will tell it like it is!

Monday evening
we will be sharing
some girl time,
together again.
I have a list
from her of things
I am to bring.

A happy heart
is at the top of that list!

Love to all,
Deb
