May is going to be a big month for me as Wayne and I return to Port Orchard in time for the Stitch and Sail cruise sponsored by A Good Yarn Shop. After the cruise, Wayne and I are looking forward to time with family and friends and have plans for several get-togethers throughout the summer. Many of my friends are ones I had from the time I was a kid. My best friend all through high school was Jane, pictured with me here at a Seahawks game. Later this summer Wayne and I are going on a wine tour with my friend Diane and her husband. Diane lived across the street from me and we attended all twelve years of school together. My grade school friend, Carol, and I email nearly every day. So you can see friends play a big role in my life. I'm fortunate to have friends who have lasted a lifetime.
