Club!

This past Saturday we had Club!! Above pictured are me, John, Bertha, Patti, Stan, Joyce, and Trish in the front. 20 years ago (that is an obscene amount of time!) we all worked together at Ingalls Hospital in the Psychiatric Unit!!!! Oh, the fond memories we have!!!! Anyway, we started meeting once a month or so and called it club. Now we are lucky to get together two to three times a year, but it is always such a joy when we do. Together we have been through the deepest tragedies that life has to offer and we have also celebrated all of life's joys. I would be lost in a world without these people!
On the work front my new job is going very well. It is only the end of day #2, but I am enjoying it so far. Jane is a great teacher, and it is so wonderful to work in an office with a bunch of nice people and no Crabby/Debbie Downer types!!!!

I gotta say John looks like 20 years ago he must have been 10 years old. This is really nice you have this comradery (sp?). So fun to have a group of friends that just go on and on.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving the "oh cripes" support. LOL I updated just a bit ago at the bottom of the same post.

Oh and wow. Thanks for puting me in your "inspiration" list. That is always so flattering to make that cut.

What a fun looking group! I guess there's not much other bonding like working together in a psych ward. Man, the stories you guys must have!

Laura, thanks for stopping by today for tea in the gazebo - I wish! It was a fun day though for all of us enjoying Kari's Spring Fling virtual tea. Glad your friends still keep in touch - especially after working in that environment!! I worked in Geropsychiatry in a state facility - not a fun place!!
Happy Spring - hope this new job works out well for you.
Mary.
