Puppy ears forever

Several people wrote me and asked how in the world I could stay on the phone for 9 hours, as I mentioned in yesterday's post.

Actually it's easy--at least for me. I've always liked to talk and phones add in the safety that no matter what I say I can't get hit for it. At least not immediately and I'm not one to worry about what'll happen the next day or weekend. Hell, Chris and I commonly had 4 hour phone conversations and according to her, she didn't like to talk on the phone. Same with me and Renee--3 hours, 4 hours, even longer at times.

However these past few days I've been talking with an old friend who --due to a disagreement way back before I moved to NC-- I'd not talked to in nearly a decade. So we had a lot of catching up to do. Something like 24 hours on the phone in one week of catching up. Not much chance of anything romantic here--she's in a "domestic partnership"--but I didn't realize just how much I'd missed talking to her until I heard her voice last Thursday. For the first time in 10 years. Wow.

She's added to the cat collection but it's only up to 4--and yes, that does seem to buy into the stereotype--but despite that regrettable foible she's pretty much the same now as she was then. Isn't it comforting to know that some things--and feelings--never change?

I think that is awesome! I love when I reconnect with old friends that have drifted away for whatever reason...time, disagreements, distance.

So happy that you re-established a cherished friendship!

What's with "puppy ears"??

There's a song she likes from the Beatles and I think that's a phrase in the song, GG.

Sassy, it was a surprise to me that it happened but a welcome one.

Whew! I'm glad you explained the puppy ears. I was thinking you were somehow referring to her appearance!

An old friend is to be cherished. I'm glad you reconnected and that comforting feeling was there regardless of all that's occurred in the interim. :-)
