“I've often wondered, what if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by a greater power from outer space from another planet -- wouldn't we all of a sudden find that we didn't have any differences between us at all?”

Ronald Reagan (American, 40th President of the United States 1981-1989, 33rd Governor of California,  actor, 1911-2004)

TIME:  11:16 PM
PLACE:  Outside patio at Cutter’s Bar
SUBJECT: Patio lights

HandsomeHusband and I were invited to a surprise 50th birthday party.  This celebrant had owned the bar where HH and I met 20 years ago.  It was like a “Cheers” bar, where everybody knew our names.  Sadly, the bar is no longer around.  We had to play tag team with the kids as we didn’t have a sitter.  I took the kids to a birthday party for my good friend Denise’s children.  HH arrived there about 8pm and I left to attend the other party.  Going to this party was like a reunion.  It was really nice seeing the group again…it reminded me of all the good times we had at the tavern, especially the beginning my relationship with HH.  I ended up talking and reminiscing with the barflies until closing at 2am.
