|Recently I received
a photograph of a September 99 reunion in Seattle. Tony the Italian Stallion
had driven from Olympia to see Lemondrops and myself. We hadn't seen each
other for more than 18 years, yet we giggled and chatted like it was yesterday.
remember having a serious conversation with Tony about how much he fancied Lemondrops.
In her younger days, she reminded him of Olivia Newton-John. Of course,
he must have been John Travolta. I was merely watching the movie unfold.
It was so good to see that Tony
had stayed handsome - a head full of black hair, a fat-free body of fireman's
muscles, and an attitude so healthy that our conversation steered towards what
Lemondrops and I were doing in our lives. She wanted to settle down.
I still wanted to fly. Many of our friends from childhood have moved to
Seattle. We could reinstate our clan if we all moved there.
But first we need to find Sir Duke of Robertshire. Don't let it be
another 18 years!
