2 Grams of friendship

Just have to rave about Byron and Paula. Byron brought us to the airport even after I gave him the wrong dates; then picked us up (5:00 am) this morning. He picked us up in AnnaMarie's car, which Paula had washed/detailed. When we got to their house to drop off Byron, Paula had gotten up early to bake fresh muffins, and packed a bag with yogurt, fruit, drinks...It was the perfect thing for 5 weary travellers, and I don't think we were spry enough to fully appreciate them. None of this will come as a surprise to anyone that knows them. Whenever we have a party, they show up to work----and don't even have to ask what needs to be done. Paula always adds an extra touch of style, Byron always brings something that makes the party---spud guns, iron puzzles, liquid nitrogen ice cream, magnesium engine blocks to burn---something.
Not sure why we're so blessed to have friends like this

I think your way understating the hospitality and helpfulness that are Paula and Byron.

Oh STOP already!

My dirty little secret is that I am just buttering people up for something.

Not sure what, But when I think of it- it's going to be a doozie!

Yeah, even for a little sis of one of the guy's girlfriends! Byron bought my car that had no usable engine in it! I froze the engine to the point of no return and Byron took it off my hands and even paid for it!
I don't think I ever thanked him enough for that one!
