Holidays are a Time for Friends

One of my greatest blessings this year has been my friendship with Karen.  She is a LOT older than me and she harbors a vicious dog in her home, but I love spending time with her.  We had a bit of a rough patch after I was attacked by Beefeater, but now we are back to our old besties relationship.

Since we live right next door to each other, I like to just pop in.  Recently, Karen seems a bit uncomfortable when I stop by, especially when Mitch and Röbert are both out of town.  I tease her about her “secret life”,  LOL.  Do you think she might really have a secret life?

 

So tonight I invited her over to my home and we drank leftover punch from last night when i had my younger, fitter friends from the gym over for a real party.  It was nice just to catch up and not worry about the past.  Happy Holidays, Karen.  ILYLAS.

    She probably does have a secret life. She’s probably learning to square dance or something special for Mitch. Don’t ruin her surprise. She probably is working on a dance routine to spice up Xmas Eve. I do it for John as often as I can when we are in the same house which is kind of rare.

    Maybe she’s having an affair with a local hottie?! Maybe someone like Ty?! GASP! You should totally spy on her one day. Get good binoculars and let us know what you find out. I think that is what a really good friend would do.

      Of course she is not having an affair. She is very old. Mitch is not the most attractive guy, but he is loaded. And Ty would never have an affair with her. I kind of picture Ty with someone a few years older than him and very fit, who loves yoga and tea, like he does.

      I think she is a secret binge eater. She is all “I’ll just have a salad with just greens and no dressing”when we are out together but her hips say, “Lasagna, all the time” when the doors are closed. Maybe that is her secret life?

    I just found your blog and wanted to tell you how sweet and kind you are for being such a good friend to your old neighbor. (They say loneliness is a problem with the elderly.) You can even tell how bad it’s getting for Karen by looking at her hair and skin. Does she have a drinking problem, maybe? Just compare your healthy curls and lovely blue eyes to Karen and there’s no doubt who the older, sadder friend is!
