The Big D

Have you ever been friends with someone for 33 years? This is my life long friend Sheri, we have been friends since 4th grade. I did a layover in Dallas to visit her and her family after leaving Arizona. We talk and email all the time, but I haven't seen her in five years and I haven't been to Dallas in eight. It was like we saw each other yesterday, picked up right were we left off.
I had not met her youngest daughter and last time I saw her oldest she was barely potty trained. I loved getting to know her girls ,they are the cutest and have the sweetest personalities. We had a great visit, talking, shopping, getting nails done and eating. Dallas has the best food and margaritas hands down! It was a perfect way to end my America trip with good memories with an old friend.

I'm glad you were able to put the frosting on the cake so to speak of a wonderful trip. Good friends are wonderful to have!

Good friends like that are a rare treasure. I have a friend I've known since High School. Whenever I see her name on my caller ID, I just answer the phone and she's already talking. We never even say "hello." We just jump right in...right where we left off last time. It's great!

I'm glad you had such a wonderful visit "home."

aw! cute! :)

and pls- I'm not easily offended...German people are known to be 'tough' - I was afraid of my own family for God's sake...they always had a scowl on their faces but gotta hand it to them- I give great ugly face to my kid now when I need to.
