We had a wonderful time looking at photos - My! How we've changed! - but we still recognized one another : a familiar voice and smile, a 'something' that everyone has as an identifying characteristic and which time does not dull, in spite of the the fact that two of us (me included) had either a bad leg, knee or diet problems that have come with advancing age! None of us were impressed with a young driver who tooted us as we made our way across a pedestrian crossing, clinging to each other for our very lives!! He would have had no idea of the expletives these gentle looking old ladies hurled in his direction!!
It was very special for me to have spent a day with these wonderful "girls"! Of course, we got up to mischief when let loose in the antique vintage clothing section, where we tried on hats, coats etc, dating back to the '50's to 70's, laughing uncontrollably at each other's modeling antics!
A trivial day's events I suppose, but great fun and a great venue to spend a cold, windy day with class mates!

Update on my left knee : Saturday.... Saw GP this morning (emergency cases only on a Saturday; I was in extreme pain all yesterday and last night and counted that as an emergency!) and he was able to access the system for MRI results. Looks like badly torn medial meniscus (as I have suspected all along!) and orthopedic surgeon most likely will need to do an arthroscopy...again, as I suspected! Till then, I have stronger medication to relieve pain which seems to feel worse by the day. However....one step at a time!
Update....Aug. 30.... At GP for script and full report on MRI..."A complex truncated medial meniscus tear".
Looks like I've done it this time! Orthopedic surgeon on Monday and, with a little bit of luck, arthroscopy on Tuesday.
