Thelma and Louise

Her hubby calls us Thelma and Louise.

My hubby calls us Laverne and Shirley.

We have been friends for over 25 years.

I never had a sister until I met her.

Back then:

* We loved happy hour and dancing and cowboys

*We wrote our lesson plans while sipping on margaritas... good lesson plans !

*She bought her first house and picked a lot down the street for me.

*She bought a white car and I bought the same car in blue.

*We laughed, we cried, we gossiped, we partied, we dreamed, we schemed

* We loved talking about men.

I knew everything about her and she knew everything about me.. except now we have forgotten over half of it.

Now :

* we love to rehab houses

*we talk about my teens and her grandbaby on the way

* We love to drive thru the hill country in the convertible

* we favor wine over margaritas

* neither one of us married a cowboy .. she married a professor and I married a businessman.

* we favor flea markets over bars

* we still laugh, cry, gossip,dream and scheme

and I am convinced one day we will have retirement condos down the street from each other .

You are my best friend forever ( BFF) Laverne !!!

Isn't it awesome to have a friend for so long? Not everyone is "cut out" to be friends for a lifetime.
