Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

These women are my growing-up neighborhood friends. We went to middle school (jr. high) and high school together. 

After high school our lives took different paths and yet we would still be in touch from time to time. Seven years ago we decided we needed to get together on an annual basis - and we have.

We stay up tooooo late at night to talk talk talk...laugh laugh eat etc...tear up, crack up, and finally get a few hours of sleep so we can start all over the next day. 

We share our joys and heartaches, we talk about our children, husbands/lovers/friends and life's challenges; we are important to each other and cherish our sweet bond. We know that each one of us would do anything for each other - how lucky are we!!!!!!!
