Are you as lucky as I am in that you have two dear, dear women in your life who have been your buds since 8th grade and with whom you can pick up a conversation after weeks or months as if no time at all had passed?
I was always crazy jealous of Jaime’s curly hair and beautiful singing voice. And Debbie and I could laugh about anything. When we were in high school, we’d phone each other any time we heard the song, “Dizzy,” playing on the radio! (this was before cell phones and texting)

Speaking of friends: I’m jetting off to New Orleans tomorrow to meet up with Mary Nethery. She and I are presenting at the IRA regional conference in New Orleans. . . with Bobbies illustrator, Jean Cassels. The first time ever the three of us will be together.
If you’re in the neighborhood, drop in. We’re also signing at Octavia Books on Monday, at 4 pm. Be there or be square.
