65 years of friendship

At Jim and Lucy’s on Monday evening, I asked Jim how long we’d known each other. Our fathers both had egg-producing chicken ranches. Jim’s dad’s ranch was just down the street from my Uncle Fred’s ranch. We went to different elementary schools until 8th grade. We decided it was probably around age 10 when we were both in Lucky Leaf 4-H Club. Jim has a vivid memory of my cousin Phyllis – who was maybe a junior or senior in high school at the time while Jim was maybe 12 years old – running a well-organized no-nonsense club meeting.
