The boys have both been away working summer jobs at their college, but they'll be back in town tomorrow, and then we'll all be going on our grand adventure. I have missed them. I can tell how much just by how happy I'm becoming just at the thought of seeing them. The photos are from last summer. These two have been friends since babyhood, having been fortunate enough to be born next door to each other. They must have been twins in a past life, or an old married couple. They never run out of conversation and comfort and humor.
