Friendly Generation Gap
Gail is one of my best friends.
She is twenty five years older than I am and looks fabulous at seventy years old.
I met her when she worked at the District Courthouse.
We hit it off right away and I worked my schedule so that we could have lunch together every day.
She's been retired now for five years and lives about an hour away
but that hasn't been a deterrent for our friendship.
We keep in touch regularly through e-mail, phone, and personal visits.
So, the other day when I went wine tasting in Pahrump,
I couldn't leave town without contacting my dear friend.
We met each other at our favorite gift shop in Pahrump and started taking photos.
Snapping photos is just one of the many things we have in common.
Gail loves to have her picture taken.
She is quite the extrovert and loves to be the center of attention without being conceited or self-centered.
She knows how to have fun.
She has lived more since being retired than while she was working.
She dances with the Silver Tappers,
a group of tap dancers for senior citizens who perform all over the State of Nevada.
She makes jewlery and every time I see her she has a gift for me.
She likes to drink wine with me and we always have the most juicy conversations.
She's also very much in love with my husband and she calls him her dreamboat.
I'm not jealous though.
She is one smart cookie and I am blessed to have her as my friend.
