We'd run into people we knew, and would be standing there talking for what seemed like an eternity.
All my siblings tell the same story, so I know it was not just my imagination.
Since I have made Northeast CT my home, I now have discovered that I enjoy running into friends. I literally see someone awesome everywhere I go!
We are all on the same page, too... friendly and efficient! You get a nice smile, a nice visit, a quick update, and you are on your way! Sweet deal!
I hope you enjoy the same visits when you are out and about in your community!
