Time Travel

At lunch today, Chuck and I met up with some former colleagues, most of whom we haven’t seen in 17 years. We all used to be together in an office where everyone worked hard, but knew how to celebrate together as well. It really was one of those amazing and rare environments where we all felt like family. Sure, there were some odd ducks (Umm, we might have been a couple of those!), but it was a wonderful bunch of people. The place where we worked shut down after a long struggle to remain viable and we scattered to other jobs and lives. But all this time, a small group has been meeting for lunch, twice a year. About a month ago, Chuck bumped into one of the gals at a meeting and she extended an invitation. This afternoon we joined the group and the years fell away.

It's lovely, isn't it, when you come away from a place of work with a friend or two. Makes schlepping in 5 days a week that little bit easier.

Hi DMM -
It does indeed. Of all the places we've worked, this was by far our favorite. The work was challenging and satisfying. But we used to have pot luck lunches once a month and other activities which kept us all close and having fun together!
