Remember that Dave Clark 5 song? It's pretty a propos today, as I've just truly realized Boomer's really gone away and I don't know if I'll ever see him again. We'll stay in touch, email, call. But that bit of our lives is done. Then on the other hand, I had a long talk with my very close pal Ace. She was there thru so many years of Stuff That Would Test a Viking!'s Constitution. Going back to the 80s when I was a newly wed. We have mileage. The last time we hung together was at my brother Johnny's funeral in Denver in 2006. A couple years later we fell out of touch. It wasn't the first time that's happened, but it never lasted 4 years before. After we gave our lists of who's since died and what major life changes have happened, we were just like the kids we always turn into when we're together. So that was marvelous. And talking to Billy later, he'll try to coordinate and be here when Ace is here, a mini-family reunion.
In totally other bits and pieces are things I've been saving to post for you. Without further ado:
