These are the girls, Karen and Vicky, a/k/a Vicoula, as I call her. She's Greek, hence the Vicoula. I've known Karen since kindergarten. Vicky and I go back to high school. We all went to college together.
This is John. He is a schoolmate of my husband. He's a great guy but also a nudge, (pronounced noodge). He loves to tease me about my son growing up and leaving me. John's a great guy and a dear friend to us even if I do want to hurt him sometimes when he teases me about my son going off to the University of Hawaii.
Here's one of Tommy, Vicoula's husband. He and Jim are like 2 peas in a pod and we make the joke that they share the same brain cell.
Last but certainly not least, we have Joe. Joe was a friend of Vicky but he's now part of our intimate family.So now you know what my crowd looks like and I'm grateful for each and every one of them.
