Out of the Blue

Had a great time over the weekend getting to getting together with dear old friends. This was a reunion of second-generation friendships, as our group is composed of children of childhood friends. We all spent many weekends together years ago at a farmhouse in rural New York owned by one of the families, and we returned there for this as well. This was an upgrade of a smaller version of the same event last year, but this year had a 100% turnout of the original group of 10 of us, which is remarkable, as we had attendees fly in from Houston, Los Angeles, and, most dramatically, Australia. It was tremendous reconnecting with everyone, and I think we've gotten to the point where we will try and get together like this annually, though it may be too much to expect everyone to attend every time considering the distances some of us need to travel to get there.
