We’ve joined a “click”

At least I think that’s what they used to call them back in high school. I never cared much for “clicks”. Probably because I like everybody. Okay, not everybody. Almost everybody. I don’t like mean people. So I like most people. Which is probably why I don’t like “clicks”. Yet, we’ve managed to land right smack in the midst of one.

Its a “Corvette click” and its pretty hysterical! Our first weekend jaunt to NH had us driving up Route 1 in Hampton when another ‘vette came in our direction. The gentleman waved at us. A very simple wave. Envision – hand on wheel, lift your fingers in a “hey” gesture. “Isn’t that cute?” I said to Brian.

We took a cruise by some friends house last week so they could see our new toy (she also owns a one). En route, sure as heck – we passed a couple ‘vettes and, again, the “wave”. “Wow!” I said to her, “What’s up with the wave thing?” “Ahhhh… the wave! Yup! Its a ‘vette owner thing.”

Yesterday, we had her out again (we’re trying to come up with a name for “her” and have so far come up with The Silver Lady or MaryLou. What do you think?) We were to NH and back before another ‘vette approached. I got all anxious and sure as heck- the wave! I was giddy with excitement!

Okay, I’m a dork. Just ask the husband.

How does this happen?

We found out last night that an old friend of ours dropped dead on Wednesday. On the golf course. He was only 58 years old. Heart attack they say. Blood clot.

I know that life is precious and that we should live everyday to the fullest because you never know when its going to be your last. It doesn’t make it any easier.

George was one of the nicest, most laid back people I’ve known in my lifetime. I would have never guessed that he was 58. Early 50’s? Maybe. George had (has?) a younger brother Jimmy. I think Jimmy’s mid-40s though now I’m thinking I might be off on that too. I’ve never known two brothers that were as close as these two (they did have their own families, too). If you saw one, you could bet the other was not far behind. I worry about him now.

Rest in peace, George. Jimmy, Evelyn and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless you all.
