the highlight of my week in Harrisburg!
There was visiting, much visiting (hampered, of course, by the fact that one of us was lacking a normal speaking voice, but grand)! And there was much entertaining talk (by those with the working vocal chords)!
So there you have it--the day passed quickly by.
It was a most splendid break in the routine wretchedness!
Gracias, gracias, mi amiga querida!**
(We have been friends for a very long time.)
However, she is only a teeny step ahead of me in length
of life, and both of us can recall a time when women wore
circle skirts and crinolines, and tortured themselves with
cinched-in waists, making us "seniors" for sure,
if not downright old!
**She is teaching herself to speak Spanish.
(fluent by now, I believe)
