Brief Encounters of the Friend Kind

Kathy and I had a really refreshing one-day getaway at Jeff and Susie Johnson’s on Camano Island, which included time with Kathy Hastings as well.

One fun moment was when Jeff started a sentence with, “I’m like Jesus.”

I stopped him before he finished and said, “It has been my experience that any sentence that begins with the words, ‘I’m like Jesus,’ ends badly!”

I think we all agreed, because Jeff didn’t finish the sentence. (FYI the sentence was comparing Jeff to Kathy Hastings in their crab potting… Kathy was coming out the legalistic Pharisee and Jeff the grace-filled “Jesus.”)

We happened to be there for the inaugural use of the Johnson’s new deck, which is AWESOME.

Our weekend started on the ferry with The Myles-era clan, who were heading out on vacation. (Photo upper left).

Don’t you agree with Plautus the Roman playwright (54 BC – 184 BC) “nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.”
