Is it that the setting was just right for a gathering of old friends, or is it that old friends make the setting just right? No matter---it was perfect.
Gentle rains that lowered the stifling temperatures; cooling breezes; the distant call of the quail; the old house filled with almost a century of memories and love and good times; the rocking chairs that seem to call our names---that was the setting to which ten old friends gathered.
Soon, the sounds of the frogs and cicadas and quail were silenced by the laughter of those friends, the tinkling of ice in refreshing beverages, myriad conversations on the porch and around the table, and the satiated sighs that followed a wonderful meal. Just another good time together in that old house!
