“Capture something you treasure“, Krista Stevens at WordPress says this week for the challenge.
What better treasure than friends?
Last snowy Sunday my dear friend Joanne (green pepper jelly maker) emails and says,” Let’s SKYPE at 10:30.”
Okay. At 10:40 I call, ”what happened?”
Oh ten thirty CENTRAL time! Got it.
So at 11:30 (my time) the SKYPE rings in on my computer and J says,
“I have a house guest- would you like to meet her?“
(and I am thinking, why would you want to SKYPE with me if you’re entertaining a house guest?)
SURPRISE! Look who enters the screen! It’s Aïda whom I’ve not seen in 27+ years. We lived in Granfenwoehr Germany in the early ’80s.
Aïda (from Florida) visiting her daughter and granddaughters at Ft. Leavenworth Kansas and drove up for the weekend to visit J.
Great memories of good times with dear friends. We were on for more than an hour. What a nice surprise! Fun.

You’ve Got a Friend
I can’t believe it took me so long to start responding to the Weekly Photo Challenges. All those challenges unanswered.
This week is home. The WordPress Weekly Challenge allows me to go through some archived files and think about the theme.
What I’m drawn to. What caught my eye.
No shortage of photos to post for home this week.
When I drive into my driveway after work I feel I am truly home. What makes you feel at home?
The gallery option isn’t really cooperating for me today. (Ooops. I read in the article Are You Boring? Seven Tips for Knowing if You ‘re Boring Someone on the Happiness Project blog by Gretchen Rubin to never mention computer problems)
