Old friend

Tuesday I drove to Salina to meet up with a dear old friend from my Navy days. He lives in Jacksonville, Florida but was in Salina on business. It had been 41 years since we had seen each other. We have communicated regularly over the past few years, but had not met up. We had a great visit. A few things brought up that both of us kind of filed away. Some for a good reason! Our lives have take different paths. He stayed in the service for 26 years. But our visit was just as if we had gotten together at times over the years. I guess we had developed a friendship that was supposed to be and remain as such for the years. Almost like brothers. We hope to get together again with our spouses,(especially now that we have the stories out of the way that they didn't really want to hear about anyway)!
