Childhood friends – grade school – sleep overs –
getting to know their parents – the trouble we did not get into
the trouble we did get into –
When friends stop by –
You try to remember all the above –
and then – you get tired and say goodnight –
Those fifty some years went by way too fast !
We grew up together in a small town in NWPA –
Six miles from the NYS border –
Where the drinking age was 18
where we lived it was 21 !
But that was later –
first we had to ride our bikes –
go to the park – hang out –
We had to be kids !
Today – like two old men – we hang out on the corner and talk.
My -how those years have changed us !
But some things never change – friendship – trust
and old stories refreshed –
four friends from the past
riding through a path with pine trees
in a odd car called the NSU PRINCE !
You would of had to be there –
It was a funny moment for us.
Today they are retired just as we are
starting out on a six month journey
first South to Gulf Shores
and then West to Arizona

Thanks buddy for stopping
50 plus years is a long time
now I have one more memory to cherish
Oh – by the way – we did use that 18 years old drinking age for NYS !
But those are stories and memories best kept to ourselves !
