This week, my friend Jennie was on the island on vacation from her job in Thailand. We've been friends ever since she ran by my balcony one late summer day in 1989. There is something to be said for those friends that have known you all your life. No background story is needed, they already know where you're coming from. Adding to the fun was that Inara and Jennie got along smashingly.
It was great seeing her and I will miss her until she (hopefully) returns for Christmas.
