Paradise, plastic bird or not.

My college roommate, Stacy, from now 35 years ago had her birthday last week.  She called me late in the week and asked if I wanted to make her birthday even better.  I said yes, of course.  She said she had a last minute meeting scheduled in Richmond, VA (we've met there before-just under 3 hours from me and an easy drive) and, if she took a vacation day and stayed an extra day would I be willing to drive down and spend a night with her.  Durr! Uh, ya.   The above photo was taken in the bathroom at a cute little cafe' where we ate.  I had to feel it to find out if it was plastic or not, it looked so real.  It was plastic but I would have loved to have had/bought it.

We had 24 hours of pure bliss just being together.  Doesn't matter when, where, or how, it's just bliss.  Ironically, she's been to Richmond many times-me only once before-but she had never had time to see the fun, cool parts so I got to show her.  Above we were in, what just might be, the coolest store in Richmond.  Yum.  I bought nothing!  Remember, last week I went on that fun outing with Fran and Nene?  I haven't even had the chance to unpack the goodies I got from then and when I do I want to share.  Until then, my heart is full, my soul is happy, and I am so very blessed.  I love you Stacy.
