Happy Birthday, Jim

I had a friend and coworker who was gay. We went shopping, to plays, movies, parties, dinner, clubs -- the gay clubs had the best dancing.

We had a pact: If I was not married by the time I was 45, and I wanted to be married, we would marry each other. I don't know if he was serious. I don't know if I was either. Probably not. **

**#47 in my "100 Things" list

He died in the 80's. I still miss him sometimes. It would have been his birthday today.

I have a great friend who happens to be gay. I can tell him anything and he is no threat to my husband whatsoever. I can imagine us all in our dotage, nodding along together.

I am sorry you lost your dear friend so early in life Vicki.
