Well, I ran into my church friend at church and he sat with me, showed me pictures of his girlfriend on his cell phone, shared the hymnal, etc. and invited me out for chicken again to celebrate my joining the church that Sunday.

We went to his house to eat the chicken, which was Mexican chicken roasted at a local taqueria, and drank Prickly Pear soda from Central Market/Whole Foods (I forget which). His wife had died several months (I don't know exactly how many) but she wore my size and he gave me several articles of clothing that had been hers. He said he would see me at church next Sunday.

I had someone to talk about as well, this guy from a nearby town whose sister I met on Craig's List when I was looking for an office chair. She wants me to move there to be closer to her brother (get this: he doesn't drive any more and he's only 52--for no apparent reason. He sent me a picture and he is bald as a cue ball! I'm just not entertained by it; I prefer men with lots of hair on their heads, so we have a difference. He prefers women who are not very much overweight and I need to lose 80 lbs. easy. We still talk on the phone so at least it's another guy in my life I can talk about instead of being lonely. . .if that makes any sense. . .believe me, I'm going REALLY SLOW. . .

So it looks like we are going to be friends anyway. He went to his girlfriend's church two weeks ago and it was very different from our church so who knows what will happen?

Maybe men and women can be friends after all. And he's only been going with her a couple of weeks. . .
