I Had The Greatest Time Last Night!

We went over to my friend Terry's house for dinner. I haven't seen Terry since my wedding in 2002 and, of course, did get a chance to talk with her much there. Before that, I think the last time I saw her was in 1998 or 1999 since I remember her son, born in 1997, was still in diapers.
I've known Terry since right after high school. We went to the same high school but didn't really become friends until after that. (we graduated in 1975).
When she married her first husband, a Marine, I was in her wedding party and visited them often, first in Yuma, AZ and then when they moved to Northern Virginia.
They divorced and since I was single, her and I spent a lot of time together and even travelled together.
She remarried and moved to this (Williamsburg) area and life got very much in the way so we didn't see each other much. When I planned the trip to Williamsburg, I went on Mapquest and was so happy to see that she was close.
We planned dinner at her house. She made a pot of Chili as I told her not to fuss. I was a little concerned about her husband and mine as to whether they would get along. Long story short, we couldn't shut the two of them up and they were the reason we were there so late getting back. I had always got the feeling that her husband didn't care for me much but I may have been wrong. I felt very welcome!
They have a house on the York (I think) River with a dock. They have crab pots and we all went out on the dock to see the catch. I held a live crab..yikes!
Terry and I chatted and just caught up on life. I'm glad my husband met her and her husband. In the past, when I mentioned I'd like to visit them, maybe when he's traveling with his bike club, I was met with resistance. I don't think I will be anymore since now he knows who I'll be visiting.
