Laughing With Friends -- A Treasure

My grandfather was known for climbing the 
water tower in Crowell (Texas).  
His best friend's mother called his mother one afternoon 
and said, "Dwight's up on that tower again."

That's the friend in this story from my youngest Uncle:
I came to the hospital to visit dad during the last few months, 
and the nurses were kind of chuckling and talking.
I asked what was going on, and they said,
 “We saw this elderly man come in with a walker 
and go to your dad’s room. 
He opened the door and rolled his walker in, 
then went in and shut the door.  
And then in a few minutes we heard two teenagers in there.”

Who are the friends that can still make you laugh like a teenager?
What a treasure they are!

I am so fortunate to be in touch with Lisa, a friend from my one year at Interlochen Arts Academy. Out of touch with her for 16 years, we met again by chance. She helped me to get divorced, and she is my most constant and vital spiritual support-- and she's agnostic. :D
