Three weeks ago I went to California to visit two of my oldest and dearest friends- Lisa and Lara. I talk about these two friends a lot, so I thought I would introduce them to you.
This is Lisa- Lisa Bay to those who know her in California. But I have known her since she was 6 years old and she hated her middle name "Bay" back then so I believe I am the only one who can call her just Lisa. We have been friends for 28 years- through elementary school, middle school- that's what it was called in Georgia- high school, college and all the years beyond. How many people can claim that! This is her at Norcross High School cheering on the mighty Blue Devils.This is Lara- Oofer K. Johnson to only me and I know I am the only one who can call her that! We meet when we were 14 years old and had 3 classes together our sophomore year. Those were some good times- way too many memories to bore everyone else with here- but let's just say we thought we were hilarous! This is her playing basketball for the mighty Lady Blue Devils. Please note that I did not include an early nineties big haired sporty picture of myself because a.) I did not have big hair, b.) I was not what you would call "sporty" in high school- my sports career consisted of church basketball and a one week stint on the track team- and c.) I think I have included enough embarrassing pictures of myself on my blog to last a lifetime, but I'm sure Lisa and Lara are very glad I began my introduction of them with those pictures. Here are some more:
