... but keep the old ...

When I was a child my mother used to sing this song,

Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver and the other gold

Last night I had to come over near our old home town to do a home visit, so I brought Sadie and Jimmy to meet some of our friends who took them out to dinner during my meeting and then gave them a tour around town. Afterwards I met them back at their house and we had a wonderful conversation.

I love being with people who were formerly a major part of our daily lives and realizing that "the more things change, the more they stay the same."

Now I'm off to get a haircut from the only person who ever really can cut my hair right....
