Friends in High Places

"Well  Ed" friend said..."if wasting time on a website dedicated to keeping up with your old high school what "floats your boat," then go for it.  But personally, I don't think that's what normal...well adjusted 80 year olds do."

Maybe not. But then, perhaps those 80 year olds he's talking about didn't grow up and go to school with kids nearly as we did.

Unlike today, nobody ever told us we were special.  I think we just knew it.

For example, one of the medical issues I've been dealing with is glaucoma...which. if left untreated, will take away your vision.  There are "drops" which will prevent this (which I have been taking for years)  But recently, I became allergic to them and had to stop.  

Three eye specialists later.....there was still no solution. 

With a red tipped cane in my future, I remembered that my old CHS friend, Linsy Farris just might have the solution!

And......HE DID!  

My doctor took his advice, and here I am, very thankful for my old CHS friend, Linsy! 

Thank you, Linsy;
