A "Friendly" Reminder
Had the best time this past weekend with my bff from College. She and I met 22 years ago this month, became roommates in college and the rest is history - literally. We actually made some more history this past weekend ... Cindy has been to the Opry before but not since it has been remodeled from the 2010 floods...and since POG was invited to sing last Friday, guess who tagged along?
Saturday was a delight for us both - we went "junkin' "...we laughed over the silliest nonsense things - LOVE friends like that!!! Once again the Nashville flea market did not disappoint!! Cindy walked away with a lasso rope (a real ole' one) to put in her youngest son's room, a horse (not one you ride, a decorative one) and she came very close at getting a saddle for her REAL horse back home - tough decision but it was between a saddle or decorative pillows - she went with the pillows.
I, on the other hand, went mostly for moral support AND to hold all of her cash... but if you know me, you know I did not leave empty handed... I found an old two headed lamp from the 30's. The lady I bought it from said it came out of a home of a true hoarder. Have y'all seen that show 'Hoarders'? OMG, we watch it ALL the time...I thought that was so cool and mysterious - so I had to get it - a real bargain - $25.00.
We found so many wonderful things but her car was not going to be able to carry them back to S.C. so instead we took pictures and wrote down ideas and when she gets back home she can go junkin' again with a much larger vehicle. LUCKY!!!
Saturday evening was an opportunity to eat dinner in our pj's and watch a movie... (except after dinner, I couldn't hold my eyes open) it's much harder to stay up in the wee hours now than back in college. Sorry Cindy... "Me Maw" worked too hard shopping I guess.
Sunday was another gorgeous day in Nashville...POG was scheduled to sing at the Fontanel (mentioned in Shelley's earlier blog) that afternoon. None of us had ever been there...Cindy joined us and our families for Sunday brunch, music and some inflatable slides - nothin' but the best for my guest!! Since a gift shop was attached to the Fontanel, us girls had one last shopping opportunity before she headed home the next morning. Look how cool this shirt is... (I love the banjo on it).
Having great friends is a priceless gift!! We consider you fans as much our friends as anyone. Thank you so much for staying connected to us and for supporting all we do. I pray you will have opportunities this fall season to enjoy the company of your dear friends. Life would not be the same without them!!!
Blessings from your friend, Leigh
