When I started at my working place 29 years ago, coworker Cindy had already been there for 6 months. Time flew by, we got old, witnessed a lot of changes, and now here we are today with the same company, relics amongst the newcomers. Needless to say, Cindy is very special to me. We've come a long way together.
So what do you say when Cindy calls you on a Sunday morning at 8 a.m., apologizes profusely and says, "We're having a baby shower for my sister Bobbie's first grandchild today at 10:30 a.m. Are you free?" I say, "HO DA SMALL-KINE LAST MINUTE, HAH??!!!" And then I drop everything and I go. I know she would do the same for me.
Here are Joanalyn and Aldann, Cindy's nephew.
Cindy is the one standing wearing the red top, Bobbie also standing and then sister Paula sitting with Cindy's mom also sitting. We all went on an Alaskan cruise a few years back. That was choke good fun. I wouldn't mind doing it again.
