We met through the fence, when I was 3 and Jo was 4.  My very first best friend.  We grew up together with a little of losing touch here and there, and then meeting again in between.  I remember singing Fernando and twirling hoola hoops around our waists.  Walking around the block a hundred times, and flying up and down on the seesaw in my back yard.  We both have daughters now.  And Jo still has those same blue eyes.  M x

    lovely. I, too, had a friend that I would walk along and sing Abba songs with! For us, it was “Knowing me, knowing you”, and I will text her whenever I hear it!
