At Cattail Cove State Park, AZ With the Sinners and the Saints

MANY WINTER MOONS AGO, I met the couple that would become my dear and lasting friends at a B&B in Everglades City, Florida. 

 We were all packing up to leave after breakfast when Peggy and I lingered over coffee and began to chat. Grumpy was eager to get on the road and told us to wrap it up, but we womenfolk wouldn't be deterred. We talked for another hour and at the end Peggy and I had made plans for me to stop to see them outside Denver, Colorado on my way to my summer home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and I had extended her an invitation for them to visit me in Wyoming. Since then, we've met in many places far and wide and it's like we've never been separated by time and distance. Guess that's the way it is with friends you love.

The moral of the story is you never know when you might run into a new friend in the most unexpected places. I consider meeting the  My Bad Influences a true blessing. Today we laugh and say our friendship extends from Everglades City to Lake Havasu City, Arizona and many places in between.... Who knows what's next. For now, we hike and play lots of UPWORDS, our favorite game.  They love to whoop my arse and do often.
