    They're in Hawaii!  Of course! Some people do call it Paradise, after all.

    If they would only send a postcard....

    Earlier this week, I dreamed about a dear friend who passed nine years ago. In the dream, for no reason I can think of, I dialed his old number... and he answered. He was still alive! He said, "I knew it was you."
    I was pissed. His "death" had really hurt! Bastard.
    He had walked away from everyone! and everything! in his life. But he had kept the same phone number? I asked him why. He said that he knew I'd call.

    •  May you visit your friend again wasatch. (6+ / 0-)

      My father has been gone 20 years this July, and I still dream about him sometimes, and in there he is alive and happy, no pain or or disability.

      And I wonder how my mind processes that, because I know he has been dead for some 20 years, but in my dreams he is healthier than when he lived.

      And he isn't the only one that comes back in my dream fugue state. I have so many memories and have lost so many people. That's the price of getting old and living longer than your cohort.

      It's actually a good sign you were angry at your long lost friend. That means you have never given up, never stopped caring.

      And thanks OPOL, you always seem to know how to bring people together. For what it's worth, I'm one pissed off liberal too.
