three-year anniversary

unbeknown to me, it was the three-year anniversary of our friendship with mig and d. it was during the tulipanes fshow at centennial park during labor day weekend that we first met up as a foursome -- though it would be five months before we'd see mig again and party with him.

it was funny because i'd inerviewed d. before a coule of times and thought she was cool. i enjoyed talking to her. then it was surprising to find out dawnie worked with her. i told her i knew d. through interviews. when we met at the park, she knew not who i was b/c i'd never seen her in person. she was just as spunky in person as on the phone.

i didn't see her until feb. but there was always talk of getting together. we finally did it for mig's b-day. it was a fun time. it was all new to me and dawnie and we had no idea what we were getting into when we paired up with those two.

from then we've been in separable, from going to b.b. king and chicago to the migrantworkers event and going up north.

it's felt like we've known them all our lives instead of only three. we've squeezed in a lot of life and fun into these three years. it's been a blast.

and how did we spend tonite? well after a trip to grand haven for some dinner, we erturned back to d.'s house where we got on youtube (started with me playing gordon lightfoot's "sundown."). it quickly progressed to other songs, d. got on her keyboard, mig on his guitar, dawnie choosing stuff on the puter and checking out music trivia and me, well, i was handed a microphone and attempted to sing eagles songs and other good stuff. it was us being us. good times, good friends, good conversation.

sometimes you just can't beat a good friend. they become part of your life and you know they're there for you. love you guys!!! de todo corazon.
