>…and Mary …er…Isabel – #1366

“I knew you were here, darling” she said when I called 
“Robby told me”
“Robby” is the daughter of our best friends and my babysittee from waaaay back. 
She also has a gardening service called “Garden Grubs” and keeps Isabel’s garden in shape.
And Isabel up to date.
Isabel is my coffee date when I’m in Auckland. She’s known me since I was in my early teens and has a memory that recalls every embarrassing detail of my youth and beyond.
93 last Saturday.
Still drives.
Still sews.
Still knows more about politics than 95% of the population.
Still amazing
