Pollywogs and Peanut Butter Crackers
When we went off to college, we realized that our chosen schools were only 20 minutes apart. We took advantage of this and enjoyed a few rock concerts together, and along with a few other friends, “Ree” and I rented an apartment together the summer after our freshman year and worked at the mall. She served as one of my bridesmaids in 1988 and I sang at her wedding a few years later. Over the years, despite the distance between us, we’ve managed to stay in touch and to visit one another’s families from time to time. Each time we’re together it is like no time has passed. Even our children quickly jump back into familiar and comfortable friendships.
