When we moved back to the States after our English tour we only kept in touch here and there, with the odd letter, the cards, the internet once it became available and the very odd phone call... My friend Jane went on to have 3 kids, and I had 5... We were busy moms, and we only ever got to meet each other's first born children.
This past trip to England brought me so much Joy, not only did Jane buy a train ticket to London to come see me, she brought her youngest daughter Megan. Let me tell you... It was as if I had never left, when you have a friend, a true friend, they are friends for life. You can see them at any point in life and pick up right where you left off. I only have a handful of friends like this, and I treasure them, I love them and I am so blessed to have them as friends.
I met Jane and Megan at Kings Cross Station, that wasn't easy, there are many sides to that station! But alas, we met, and I will tell you that my girlfriend hasn't aged a year!!!!! How is that possible??? She looks every bit of young as she did 24 years ago! So not fair!! She looked wonderful! And let me tell you something about Jane... She's had lifes problems, as we do... But this woman takes life by it's horns, and she remains positive, she seeks the positive in everything. She is my inspiration.
So we met at Kings Cross... We walked to Trafalgar Square and on the way... We passed the British Museum (YES PLEASE), so we stopped in. I'm a little ticked off that my camera phone didn't take better photos, but what can you do? I still have my memories right?
On our way.... What have they done to my Red English Phone box???? There should be a law against this! THE RED ENGLISH PHONE BOX SHOULD BE PROTECTED!!
I bet he never thought he would end up here... In London... on display.
Here's Jane and I after we left the British Museum.
This photo, I had to put up, as blurry as it is, because if you peer into it, you can see some green... and you can see Big Ben... The chimes of Big Ben are so beautiful...
It's so hard not to stop at every single one of these in London... they sell the cutest things. Mostly over priced, but I do love the Union Jack... but they do see us Americans coming!
