Me and Bobby

I have a wonderful friend.  She is one of those people who listens.  She accepts everything in me (and others) with calm joy and delight.  Except sadness, which always gives her concern.  I met her first when I was about eleven, and although the last few years have mostly kept us apart, I have never stopped holding her very dear.  She lives with her exceptional husband and family on the other side of the world, but I have recently found out that next winter she and her daughter will, all things going according to plan, stay here with me for at least a few months.  I am so looking forward to that!    


  1. Errr..Which one is you and which one is Bobby?...And "the other side of the world". Do you mean Baffin Island?... That apart I am glad that Bobby and her daughter are coming your way. Better get some food in!

  2. What a wonderful imagination you have YP! There is snow in other parts of the world other than Baffin Island dear man. And, good question. Which do You think is Bobby and which is me?
    I have until August next year to get some food in. I'll probably go to the supermarket around July...

  3. I think you are the pretty one. Bobby is the one who is not so pretty.

  4. Ha! I thought you'd say that. You have obviously booked your NZ flights already and got those ones you can't refund.
    Just a warning, 'though: Bobby reads this blog too.
