Ten o'clock Saturday afternoon we left BCC and drove into Glendale where we parked in the drive at the lovely home of my old college friend Wes and his lovely wife Carol. Wes and I both arrived on campus at Seattle Pacific, he from Arizona and I from Colorado, about the same time in nineteen-something-or-other back when dirt was young and so were we. We immediately had something in common as I'm quite sure we were the only two who showed up in ten-gallon hats. (There were a couple of Texans there, though, so maybe my memory is not completely accurate.) Anyway we lived in the same dorm during our sophomore year, we both majored in philosophy and we rented a basement cubby-hole style apartment together one quarter. We even split an off-campus evening job for a while. We have stayed in touch over the years, but our visits together have been rare since I moved to Indiana.
The next few days were spent reminiscing and enjoying the hosts' hospitality. Jo and I did a tour through Sun City and Sun City West and also went through a few model homes in a new Del Webb community called Corte Bella. We didn't buy. Perhaps we should have.
