Old Friends and a New One

An eventful and enjoyable Sunday!

I spent most of the day down in West Hollywood reminiscing with old high school friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen for twenty years! Not too long ago, in my hometown of Fredonia, a class reunion was held but many of us on the west coast couldn’t make it. We did our best to make up for it yesterday and I had a lot of fun catching up and sharing stories of our western New York roots. It still amazes me, years later, how lucky I was to grow up in a town full of so many creative, interesting, fun people; I so took it for granted back then.  Heya folks: let’s do that again sometime soon!

From old friends to new: Jenn and I adopted a new kitten! So far we haven’t officially named him, but for now he’s “Arthur” (the name his foster mom gave him):


“Arthur” is a friendly and curious fellow who will purr at the drop of a hat. He’s adapting quickly and nicely to his new home. Sadly, the same can’t be said for our four-year-old cat Cairo, who isn’t terribly happy about having to share his house with a new stepbrother. We’re hoping in time the two dudes will start hanging out, but for now, we’ve got them in separate rooms and are hoping to integrate them gradually into each other’s lives. It will take time, but I think it will work out eventually!

    Hey old friend! I’m heading back to the homestead this weekend for my 20th reunion an am actually sort of excited but reticent at the same time. I can play nice but can everyone else? should be beyond interesting!

    In preperation for the event I’ve pulled out my senior yearbook (the only one I have form all 4 years somehow) and have looked through it several times trying to remember instances of connection with these people and who do I see – Rob Chizmadia staring out at me from the “High School Highlights” page! Thank goodness for you, Rob, Lynne, Agnes and the rest of my “Fredonia friends”! I am smiling as I type this – as I invariably do when I think of you all – and realize how lucky we were to have each other. I also have you to thank for my continued love of the bass, funk and all things Primus!

    Take care and good luck with the new kitty! If they are declawed just throw them together ad let them have at it – they’ll be fine!!
