I phoned a mate I hadn't seen in years last night, we had some great laughs about our teenage years. :)

Smartarse pretend Australian woman. I phoned my dearest friend Eddie this evening ( I had to get his number on the net through his business ad) He was best man at my wedding and although we still live in the same town, we only meet by accident in the supermarket etc. He's the nicest man you could meet.

I phoned those two guys because of something Margaret said to me recently. She said that noone wants to know me and I assured her that I could call my oldest friends and they'd do anything for me. I had to laugh though. I described my alcoholism to Eddie and he suggested we should meet up in his local pub ! He meant well. He remembered my love of snooker and pool and the club he goes to has a few good tables.

Lovely of him to remember that you liked playing snooker/pool and to suggest meeting somewhere where you were able to do that. I hope you are going to meet up?

I am still friends with my 2 besties from school, we became best friends 50 years ago and still meet up when possible today. I have said before that the friend who lives in York is going through hell at the moment as her Dad just had a stroke (he is now out of hospital but in a care home for a few weeks in a dementia ward which isn't really suitable but was the only one available - the family had no choice by the way, Social Service had the say where he went !!)). She was in Stafford last weekend on a visit and suggested we all meet up. Sadly I had been ill and was in bed so in the end couldn't make it but the third friend showed what a good friend she is. She picked Heather up (Heather is no longer allowed to drive since she had a stroke), took her to see her Dad and then took her to her house where she cooked a meal. Normally we go out for a meal when we meet up, but Lynda thought that as Heather was so upset and worried about her Dad it would be better to eat in and be able to have a good chat about it in private.

How thoughtful is that?

I love my besties.

:)

My schoolfriend Greg and I are best pals, have beeen for almost 35 years now. We have been through thick and thin together, ups and downs, milestones, the lot.
People say that a man and a woman can't have a platonic friendship. Well we have, and have travelled 35 years to prove it.

That is nice Kazzz. My oldest friend, well I have known her since I was five. Yep that's not since today nor yesterday.

I've known Eddie all of my 54 years and Billy since early schooldays.
