I have always been pretty good at keeping in touch with people from the past. I am always curious to see what direction people went with their life and what they have been up to. Anyone who has been in my life for a long time will remember Barb.
I went back in my archives and scanned this picture of Barb and I back back in like 1998 or so.
I also found this one of her.
A few months ago she sent me a message that she was going to be in Austin, TX for work even though she lives in Wisconsin. I haven’t seen her in like 13 years so I suggested meeting up for dinner.
I asked my friend Selena to go for the drive with me since it is over an hour away. We hopped in the car and headed north. Did you know that Austin is the live music capital of the world? Here is Sel, Me and Barb.
We talked about everything from the past to the present. During the course of conversation she mentioned that she still has the cat that we got when he was a kitten. She told me she renamed him Max. I told her that I have a picture of him still. She said “is it in the fridge”. I think it is awesome that she knew exactly what picture I was talking about. I scanned it so you can see it.
After dinner I ran into the local ABC News guys and gave an interview about my thoughts on Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, boobs and beads!
Then we went into an Elvis bar! Now Selena can say she had her picture taken with Elvis.
And check out the quote on the stairs.
Here is Barb saying CHEESE!
And Barb and I with our Mardi Gras masks on.
Thanks for the awesome evening Barb! I can hardly wait until our next reunion… maybe in Wisconsin?
