Yesterday afternoon, Bob and I spent about 2 hours in the backyard, pruning the roses. While we were working our voice mail took a message. Our friends Kaye and Gary, called to invite us to attend High School Musical The Ice Tour, on the 26th. This is our conversation, when I called Kaye back:
J: Hi Kay, thanks for thinking of us, but I'm already scheduled to work.
K: Oh, good, because I was going to call an Un-InViTe you! We decided not to go. There's just too much going on.
J: Well, if that's the way you're going to be!
Then we both dissolved in laughter.
Kaye and Gary were the first friends we met, when we relocated to Murrieta, over 10 years ago. They're wonderful friends, but we're all so busy that we seldom have a chance to get together. Even though we live less than a mile apart, we're often forced to "get together", via phone messages and email.
On the 30th of this month, Gary is having lung surgery. He has melanoma in his lung, and we're hoping for a healthy New Year for him and all of us. Keep Gary and Kaye in your thoughts and prayers.
