Two amigos

I'm back from vacation -- it's always good to go away, but then it's good to come home. It was a good 10 days and I enjoyed visiting with my parents, my brother and his family, Megan, and my friend Rebecca and her family.

One of the great things about knowing someone since you were both 6 years old is how easy it is to pick up with each other again. That's how it was for me and Rebecca. We stayed up too late talking and spent a glorious afternoon at Hyde Bros. Booksellers in Ft. Wayne (the most amazing used book store -- if you're ever in Ft. Wayne, you have to go there). I wish I could have stayed with Rebecca longer -- I definitely have to go back, and it won't be another 20 years before I do!

True to form, we had a bit of adventure (involving lost keys, a pot of chili and our parents rolling their eyes) -- it's good know some things never change. It was surprising, though it shouldn't have been, how much alike we still are.

I wish I had a picture of us as kids, but this is the two of us last week in Ft. Wayne. (Rebecca's on the left.) We're a little older and, hopefully, somewhat wiser (and I'm a lot grayer). And we're still friends for life.

Oh, boy. I wish I'd known there was something fun to stop in Fort Wayne for. We've been through there a number of times.

Hyde Brothers is downtown in an old building. I think it's on Wells. It's a pretty amazing bookstore and they're expanding into more rooms!
