Had one of those amazing vacations I'm very sorry to see end, but end it did. Nothing stops time, alas. Spent most of the vacation hanging out in a rented house in North Carolina with a bunch of women friends (from as far away as Australia) who love the same television show (Combat!). We watched episodes, chatted, listened, goofed... I haven't laughed that hard in ages.
Thank goodness for great tv shows made in the '60s, and thank goodness for the internet for letting people with the same passions find each other. A better set of friends I couldn't ask for!
