  1. Doug S. says:

    Corn curls (my family always called them “cheese doodles”) become stale rather quickly upon being exposed to air…

    • Stale doesn’t mean rotten. And they do not get “stale”, they lose crunchiness because of atmospheric humidity.

  2. Lizzie — you just made my day.. This group of friends brings back so many memories. In the 90′s, all of our friends were dying around us from AIDS, and things were, well, scarey. We found ourselves attending a memorial service every week there for a while.

    But there was still this core group of 6 friends (3 couples) that hung in there until one of our group eventually passed… and it was as if he was the glue that had held us all together. I don’t think any of us even realized that about him.. we were just family together and always would be.

    After Dave’s death, though, in an amazingly short period of time, we two remaining couples and Dave’s partner just sort of drifted apart. My own partner and I haven’t seen any of them for at least 8 years now.

    Reading about this little group breaking up after losing one of their own just brought back a wealth of wonderful memories – and for that I thank you!
