An old friend visits

My old friend Kathryn came for a visit. She and her cousin Tim arrived around 4pm on Fri, just as I was winding the cord back up on the vacuum cleaner.

I met Kathryn nearly 20 years ago where we both worked. For some reason, we became fast friends. I say "for some reason" because demographically speaking we don't appear to have much in common. I'm a white gay man and she is a black hetero woman. But we were born just 10 days apart and were raised by parents with similar child-rearing beliefs. We appreciate each others' sense of humor and seem to have a sort of intuition, like twins. I've even referred to her as my "twin sister from different parents".

After I showed them around the house (it was their 1st time here) and they put their things in their rooms, Spouse came home and the 4 of us sat and talked for a few hours. Then we joined Rick & Nick and a few others for dinner at the Miltonian Pizzeria and Wing House.

Sat morning we talked over coffee, then walked to the Lewes farmers market, then strolled threw the arts and crafts show. We returned to the house for brunch, talked some more, and then we went for a little drive around Lewes before stopping at the Timberland outlet on our way to Rehoboth where we met up with Rick & Nick again.

Rick & Nick were standing in line in a bookstore to get their photo taken and their book signed by Tim Gunn from Project Runway. Next we got an ice cream cone and watched people on the boardwalk. When we returned home we talked some more, took Jordan for a walk around the pond, then listened to some music before Kathryn and Tim packed their bags. They left at 9:00.

We had a great time, and Kathryn promised to come again when she can stay the entire weekend.

On Sun Spouse & I met Rick & Nick at the beach. It was kind of hot that day, but its always cooler and more breezy at the beach so it was just perfect.

It was another lovely weekend... livin' our dream.
