Tonight Could Have Been Better. by tucsonmike on 11 January 2006 6:02am
 
I'll try the short story out offline for those interested. I received a phone call from my friend of thirty years and former boss. She lost almost everything in the hurricane in the Florida Keys last year.
So, I might just go to Florida in July, just to, well, be there. I'm not used to not being able to go in and solve the problem. I'm finding it rather frustrating. (I know, Mike, the Knight in...tarnished armor). I almost stormed out the door, went downtown and got on a bus for Florida tonight.
So I will try out my story about her. Anyone for a critique group?

I'm up for it Mike. So sorry to read of your friend - it's horrid feeling powerless but being there will keep her spirits up I'm sure. Linz

Mike how devastating for your friend, Florida has recieved a power of damage last year, and I know your friend will know you are thinking about her, sometimes we just aren't in the position the physically help, due to distance and family commitments, a true friend will know you are there for them in thoughts and heart alone..... i wish her all the best rebuilding her life xx
