Friday:) Four Years Ago and Today~ Friends, Fires and Birthday Parties

1 Jul

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.

~ Thomas Aquinas


When I checked my Facebook page today, the first thing it posted was the memory page from the past years. I’m always excited to see what I did last year or four years or six years ago on this day. I totally forgot about four years ago, on this day, I played “fireman” in my old neighborhood, when I noticed some billowing black smoke coming from next door. I tried calling the Reynold’s, but no one answered. I didn’t know if hey were home or not, and  perhaps didn’t see the smoke in their back yard. When I went over to investigate, there was a billow of black smoke and fire by the pipes and foam that housed their pool equipment. Panic! Do I call 911 and take a chance that the fire gets bigger and jumps up to the house, or reach around the corner, grab the hose and try to put it out? I chose the latter. After the smoldering stopped, I did call 911 and had them come out to check, just in case Toni, the firefighter, didn’t get it all under control.

I did a pretty good job, considering I didn’t have my Fire hat on. Nice memory. I’m glad I was around. 

Now, for today. Today is my good friend Sherri Murphy’s birthday. I received a text from her this afternoon inviting me to join the family for dinner and birthday cake. That was so nice because I do feel like part of the family. Jim went with me and we had a very nice time. I brought Black Russian fixin’s. It is Black Russian Friday, after all!

Happy birthday Dherri Murphy. 


And, Black Tussian Friday buddies.
