I thought by now that my dog might be better acclimated to her blindness (she lost her eyesight July 4th weekend). She has improved, but not enough so that she would no longer be a burden. So I pulled the plug and will miss the Fair again this year.

On the other hand, I have an opportunity for a girl's evening out this Sunday!

A few days ago, I ran into one of my best friends from high school. We went to different colleges and our separate ways after high school, so we had a lot of catching up to do. It was great to see him again and it brought to mind the last time I saw him.
It was over 20 years ago. My wife and I were shopping in a department store and as we queued up to check out, I noticed my friend in the next queue. He was with his wife who was standing in line behind him watching as he placed his purchases on the counter and waited for the cashier to ring him up.
His purchases were a half-dozen women's dresses and he looked sheepish making the purchase (been there, done that). I did not say a word to acknowledge my presence because I did not want to embarrass him in case the dresses were for him.
How do you broach the subject with someone you suspect is one of us?
If I encountered him while I was out en femme, I would not think twice about saying hello. That sure would be an ice breaker!
