Reconnecting with an old friend
She was tall and beautiful and we were very good friends, up until her family moved to New City, NY. That was about 1963. We wrote letters a few times and then, as so often happens, we lost touch.
But I never forgot Adele. I always wondered how her life turned out and what she was doing.
Reconnecting with her on Sunday was the coolest thing ever. She sent me these two photos. In the photo above, we are Christmas caroling on our street, Findlay Avenue. That's Adele in the back on the right. That's me on the left.
Here we are in all our Easter Sunday finery - hats, gloves, purses and even flowers on our lapels. I remember going to Woolworth's with my Mom and picking out a new hat for Easter. That's me on the far left and Adele is in the red coat. Roberta, Deanna, my sister Bernadine, and Nancy Elardo make up the rest of our little group.
Isn't it funny when a blast from the past knocks on your door?
