Absent friends

Was recently going through some old files and photos. Came upon some shots from golf trips to Myrtle Beach in what now seems like the distant past. Gave me pause to reflect on how having successful friends can sometimes lead to separation but how great it is to be able to stay in touch via tools such as this blog, Facebook, email, and that old form of communication - the telephone.

For example, I took this photo on a trip to Kiawah Island. You know, I don't even remember what year it was but I do recall that Commissioner Booty, Counsellor Paul, Dr. Ricky Ray, Father O'Malley and others were in attendance.

I wrote a stupid mystery after the trip, "K is for Kiawah", in which I took the piss out of a number of people on the trip but it was all done with joy and the intent to create a record of a time that meant much to me.

Anyway, I'm still in touch with most of the people on that trip. It would be great if they were more nearby. My pal in Hong Kong I miss a bunch. My friend in Situate as well. Can't remember if the big Latvian was in Kiawah but now he's in Bermuda and I'd love to see him again too.

Good night my friends. Sleep well.
