Do you remember @marijke post about a “Missing opportunity”?
She and Fred had it all nicely planed; they would fly to Portugal and rent a car. They had already crossed the map with a red pencil from top to bottom and every night they discussed excitedly;
-We will go to Lisbon. Then we´ll rent a car and visit everything. We could book the hotels right now.
-I think we would better begin in Oporto. We can drive down, always down, until we reach the beaches.
After all this enthusiasm, they ended up not coming at all. Such a sad, sad, thing!
I was going to visit her. You probably have noticed I´m visiting Yoorsies, now and then. I prepared myself to travel; I sat in front of my computer and stretched the hand to click on “Wings of Imagination”(that paint has been my portal to the Netherlands). My hand froze.
I didn´t go. Instead I invited Marijke and Fred to my house.
Someone is knocking. I open the front door, and there they are. There´s a hair of spring surrounding them. They are both wearing jeans and Marijke is wearing sunglasses. They seem happy. An idea crosses my mind in a flash: could I ask Fred?…
Fred seems a skilful man (I saw him cleaning the snow in front of their house). I´ve been having some troubles with my washbasin…
Commenting my post, Marijke expressed her appreciation for my office in the veranda. So, I prepare three cups of really hot coffee and we sat there, looking and waving at the boats.
What a nice thing it is, making friends on Yoors.
