Friends both old and new

How often have you heard the expression, "You can count your true friends on one hand"?

While we do have some that we call "true-blue" friends, we all have many friends, whether it be a neighbor, a casual acquaintance, or a co-worker.  Through the years I have met people from all walks of life that I consider as friends.  There are those that were in the school system with me, clerks in the various businesses in town, church members, club members, town employees, and many others that I could always depend upon.

Probably one of my best friends was Bett, who worked for me for thirty-five years, helped me raise my children, and shared all of my joys, as well as a few heartaches along the way.
My neighbors have always been wonderful, in fact all of them, so I will not call names.
As for a friend that I could absolutely not do without, it would be Susan Shedd, my beauty operator, who can perform miracles, and make me look like something that I am not!
