You gotta have friends !

Friends, what would we do without them?
If someone asked me, who's your best friend?
I'd have to answer I have three,
my Mother, my Daughter,
my dear friend Carol.
Let me tell you a little about Carol.
She's 70ish, one heck of a decorator who
loves primitives, flea markets, and chocolate ice cream.
Last Christmas I gave her a poem I wrote and framed
and a pint of chocolate ice cream.
Here's the poem.
Carol's Poem
The flea markets are still,
for in the wind there's a chill.
Snow beneath my feet.
I'm in need of a treat.
Ice cream I say,
And ice cream I'll eat.
Till the snow melts away
on a warm sunny day.
And the flea markets fill,
Oh, what a thrill.
Hot aching feet.
I'm in need of a treat.
Ice cream I say.
And ice cream I'll eat !
A few pictures from Carol's home.


  1. WOW......what a beautiful home!! You can tell she has wonderful taste and knows what to do with it!!! Enjoy everyday you have with your special friends! I lost my true friend last October, visited her grave Saturday and miss her more than words can convey!! My other dear friend, my Mom, is in last stages of Alzheimers and oh how I miss her. Would give anything to be able to share my life with her again. I miss our conversations so much!! Thank God I still have my 3 daughters who are also my best friends!!! God is good!
