Still, I'm very happy about it. Bill (yet another Bill) was easily my best friend when I was a kid for many years. I spent a ton of time at his house and everyone there felt like family. I especially remember that his Mom was like a saint. She always made me feel welcome there and I wasn't exactly the most outgoing of people. It's going to be interesting to find out how his family's doing and what's happened in his life since we last talked. We ended up growing apart a bit when highschool had rolled around. It was just a different crowd. His involved football and booze. Mine was distinctly more geeky and subdued.
Anyway, I sent him my cell # and hopefully he'll give me a ring at some point. I feel like I should be humming memories or something of the sort.
