The deluded divas have been engaged in a great adventure for the last few days, and blogging was out of the question. It was replaced with gambling, dining, reminiscing and a whole lot of laughter. The photo above was made at dusk from the back seat of Marie’s “Cougar Mobile.” We were lost as usual, driving around trying to find the Palace Casino (a no smoking one) to rejoin the other half of our party.
Several of our childhood girl friends from The Point journeyed to Pass Christian to see Hazle’s new home. She was my college roommate and the brave one in our group who wandered across the country for 40 years before finally returning to her roots in Mississippi albeit in that foreign country we north Mississippians call The Coast.
That’s Hazel standing. She was the greatest hostess and I’m wondering if she slept for 10 straight hours like I did after the weekend was over.
We were delighted by a visit from our other wandering friend – Carolyn Mitchell, at left. You would know her by another name. She’s changed it – probably to avoid the law.
At right is Barton – also not her real name. She moved away from The Point before we finished high school, but she says we were the only “Real People” she encountered from that point forward.
At the casino, we’d keep losing Norma and find her over in the corner catching up on her Facebook blog.
The later it got, the sillier we got. When I got home I went right to bed at 8 p.m. and slept right through for 10 hours – a first for me in many, many years.
I awoke feeling refreshed and ready to rejoin “my other” life again.
Gene and Awtry. That’s what Hazle and I called
each other in College. We can’t remember why.
