There are all kinds of quotes about good friends, and one of my favorite quotes is "A GOOD FRIEND IS LIKE A GOOD BRA, CLOSE TO YOUR HEART AND SUPPORTIVE." I don't know who wrote it, but it's mine now.
A few weeks ago Mom, Betty, and I were doing our weekly shopathron (is that even a word?) at Goodwill. You know we dearly love Goodwill, almost as much as we love each other. I happened to mention that there was a vase on the counter that I loved, but it was too much money. Of coarse it went right in Betty's cart. She said I had a birthday coming up...
Well we all have birthdays coming up. Mine is coming up in May of 2019.
Just when we were ready to go home Betty spotted four bright orange pillows that would look wonderful on her sofa and she

BUT THEY REALLY REALLY
LOOK GOOD ON MY SOFA. THEY REALLY DO.
TO MAKE THE LONG STORY SHORT, I'M TAKING THEM TO BETTY TOMORROW. REALLY!
I REALLY REALLY LOVE THAT VASE.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME. ...REDFOX
