A Friend Indeed

♪♫  When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand  ♪♫
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah,
♪♫  you've got a friend.  ♪♫
- Carole King

It was better than that!

We don't get to see each other much. Living 2 hours away from each other tends to get in the way. Email, texting and facebook keeps us connected. (Seriously - A big WHOOP! for modern technology.)

However....every now and then girlfriends just got to get person!

So...a plan was hatched...

There's always been a wide gap between the haves and have-nots. And the fascination that comes with wondering how the other half lives? Been around forever!

I admit. I'm guilty. I have pondered what it must be like to live the life of the rich and famous (this mostly occurs when I sit down to pay those darn bills that keep showing up in my mailbox...argh!)

Let's call them the R&F...those who have what we do not...

Ramblings, Ponderings and other States of Mine - Silence!

Ok. My mind was wandering today. In a million different directions. As per usual.

Wandering and pondering.

Nothing as deep as the meaning of life. Just the little things.

And things that bug me.

Somethings that has been bothering me for a long time. Let's just call it....
