What a wonderful way to spend an early afternoon. Met two college pals from UT Drama, Wendell G and Gretchen G, for pizza at one of my favorite neighborhood joints. It was so great to reconnect. It’s been over a year now since we lost our dear friend Becca; it was her passing that reconnected the whole San Gabriel Estate gang. Since then we’ve exchanged laughs through Facebook, shared recipes and jokes through the Dave Hime-created San Gabriel Estate website, and reaffirmed love and the meaning of good old friends. Feeling very lucky today.
