That would be yesterday. Granted, it didn't start very well, I bolted out of bed around 0645 and out the door about 0650 so you can see how fast I got dressed. I was on a convoy to drop someone off so that they could go on leave:) Since that doesn't take long I was back shortly, and as it was to be a slow morning I went back to my room, showered and got ready for the day properly. Got to the office a little later then normal, but like I said slow morning. As I left to go to lunch, it got fun:) As I was walking up the hill, one of my friends that I have not seen in forever came driving around the corner. We stopped and chatted, but I had a prior lunch engagement that I had to get to. Well, the person with whom I was supposed to eat lunch was very busy and unable to go. So I went with my other friend, and as we walked over to the chow hall we played a bit of catch up. He had just come back from leave, and it wasn't all he had hoped for, though not his fault. It seems that a young lady had gotten him rather besotted with her, and he thought, she with him. But shortly after returning to the states, she very cruely dumped him, and gave no reason why. My friend is a very sweet sweet person and in no way deserved it! But we also talked about what we had been up to otherwise and all in all it was great to see him again, and be able to spend time talking to him.
Yesterday afternoon was a busy one for myself and my team mate, in fact we didn't leave the office til time to go to chow at 1700, which of course always makes me happy as it makes the time fly by a wee faster. We went to chow, where I saw another friend whom I have not seen in a long time. As he was staying the night here, we made arrangments to meet later that night and catch up on his leave:)
So I was very fortunate yesterday, and by the time I went to bed, I went to bed feeling a wee better then I have in awhile. Friendships in this country are valuable to me, and I do treasure them.
