By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Heart Throbs

The story behind this pic.......Joyce, Linda & I went to college together in the 70s' where we had a blast. During that time everyone was pledging & going thru all that hazing stuff........not us. We formed our own group.......of three.... we named ourselves "The Heart Throbs"......yea, you heard me right......LOL......anyway, once word got out, all the girls wanted to join..........but we wouldn't allow that.......we were the three amigos for 2 years. After college we drifted apart and life went on...... years later, I saw Joyce as some eatery & we made plans to get back together. One summer's day it happened in the early 90s'. We laughed, cried, caught each other up on what was going on in our lives while the guys did whatever they did in the den. Soon it was time to go so Linda's hubby snapped off several pics from 3 cameras.......you know how that is. A couple of years later, Joyce dead for complications from Sickle Cell Anemia. By doctors knowledge & research, she had far out lived her life expectancy. Joyce was a courageous, funny, sassy, smart lady. She was a teacher and wife & I was very luck to have known her. Linda & I have made it a point to keep in touch. She's one of those friends who you may not have seen in a while but when she calls, it's like we just talked yesterday. So here's to the Heart Throbs......and to all of you lady-groups..........keep in touch with one another even if it's only a card or and "E"!
