I recently met 2 "old friends" for lunch. Guys I grew up with, and amazingly, 2 of us live within a mile of our childhood home, and the other lives in his childhood home. While not close friends anymore, we have stayed in touch over the 40+ years we've known each other. Interacting with people with whom one has such longevity (outside of family) is a great thing in my opinion, and we all enjoyed the fact that over the years we still have lots in common, and lots to share.

After having done so, I just wanted to reprise this post, which I believe is one of the best ever written here at the Fool. Admittedly, the musical references make it special for me, but the theme is universal, and I've read it a few times since Synch originally posted it.

I understand that my opinions in these forums don't amount for much, but if you haven't done so already, take the time to re-read it. It is worthy of merit, deserving of far more "recs" than much of what I see on the "Best of" list.

By the way - what ever happened to your friend David? The post begs for a post script. Thx for a memorable post.
