4 x 4 Fun

I've been tagged by Elizabeth over at Mindwhisperings. The rules, in her words:
1. Go to the 4th folder where you keep your pictures on your computer.
2. Post the 4th picture in the folder.
3. Explain the photo.
4. Tag 4 fellow bloggers to join in the fun!

This photo is one of those reminders to me that sometimes old friends are the very best thing in the whole world. This is a picture of my dear friend, Kim and her husband Gaylon. Kim and I met when we were 17 years old and were going through rush together at Oklahoma State University. She is from Chickasha, OK and is one of those delightful people who knows no such thing as a one-syllable word. One of my favorite sounds in the whole world is to hear her call me by my little used nickname of Kat which comes out something like this "Kaa-yaa-ttt."

We lost touch for nearly 30 years (how can that be?) and this picture was taken at the wedding of our other dear friend, Theresa. We were (and are) the three Virgos in the Zeta house with our birthday's all falling within a week of each other (same year). I have the distinct honor of being the oldest. When reunited for the wedding, it was like we were all 17 again and no time at all had passed. There is something incredibly wonderful about having friends who knew you when...

Thank you, Elizabeth for this little walk down memory lane. I think I'll go e-mail my amigos, Kim and Theresa!

So, for this one I tag my virtual buddies, Christine, Tess, Sunrise Sister & Rebecca. Anyone else who wants to play, please join in. It's great to see what pops up!
