Because of Facebook’s “On This Day” feature, I am reminded that wanting to appear and feel younger and more vital — like our friends, the Goodmans — was not an insignificant reason for this undertaking.
Four years, a military retirement, two high school graduations, breast cancer, significant downsizing (unrelated to the breast cancer — ahem), and a lot of gray hair later, here we are, enjoying a lifestyle we love, thanks to inspiration from Joel & Louise.
FriendFest = Ten women who became friends as Navy wives in Mayport, FL in the early 1990’s. We’ve gathered for an autumn weekend every year since 1995, usually in a beach house, but sometimes in more exotic places.
And since 1) I’m not in the RV, and 2) what happens at FriendFest stays at FriendFest, I’ll be spending some time back-filling the blog over these few days of napping punctuated by drinking, and laughing until we pee. There’s still a fair amount of history to include here.
