Girl Friend, Ragazza, Amie, Подруга 2

This is my latest book on CD.  I am drawn to her book (remember the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) because I am green with envy for those who have had girlfriends since childhood.  The characters in this series had mothers who were all friends and the sisterhood were all born in the same month...friends for life!  Do any of you have a bestie since childhood that you still connect with regularly?  I am thinking about this because yesterday when I had to sign up for an online view of  statement it asked me 3 security questions.  One was, "who is your childhood best friend?"  I always put "Colleen" because she is my earliest friend that I am totally connected with...we met at the age of 14, 2 girls starting high school in an all girls school.  There have been ups and downs, tragedies, broken hearts, tempered with soooo much fun girl time! 

My other long time friend is Terri, who was my college roommate.  LOTS of history there.  What is intriguing is that as time has passed and there were great spans of time where we were busy with life and only connected with Christmas Cards...we both ended up quilters!  I am grateful to Terri because she is who I learned my love of "the dog."  Her family had "Barney" who licked the dishes clean and always had a smile.  It seemed natural to her that when we moved from the dorm to our first apartment we'd get a dog.  "Beau" ...I loved Beau but, my family does not get dogs...don't understand dogs...neither my mother or sister have ever even owned a fish (unless is was on a dinner plate)!  When I graduated, Beau stayed with Terri and every time he saw me he pee'd on my shoes! Ahhh good memories!

Yesterday was the August birthday potluck with the Material Girls and I actually was off a Monday where I could attend!  Those girls are talented and so here are just a handful of slides on what they have been up too!

Today is the BJ's Quilt Basket Open House and Woolies at QuiltWorks!  I am lucky enough to have had a couple of days off because I worked the weekend.  So, I am going to jump on Phoebe??? I mean Patty and hit the open road!
