Musical Interlude

(For politics, please scroll down)

My best friend of some 53 years died on February 9; circumstances were such that I didn't find out until February 22. There was no better friend in the world than Carolyn! I have a terrible void in my life now. 

The selection below accurately reflects my frame of mind right now....

    1. Thank you, FJ. A real pall has fallen over my life without Carolyn to talk to.

      I hate this stage of life! Losing friend after friend!

    2. Exactly. And we have less and less time and/or opportunities to make new ones. :(

    1. Too much off-topic content in your comment. This blog post, "Musical Interlude," is not about politics!

  3. I'm hoping my last comment I thought should have published doesn't show up....I used your first name, AOW...so sorry. What I said was how sorry I am that you've lost 2 such very dear friends in such a short time....... Glad you've got Mr. AOW to hug ...hug him for ME :-)

    1. I guess that I'm at the stage of life to lose friends. That fact doesn't make it easier, though.
