Love you Paula..Hope you and your family are doing well. Have never been to Savannah, I had a friend named Shirley that lived in Savannah, but she has passed on a few years ago. Shirley lived in the area where I live, Southeast Texas. In the early 1980s Shirley, my sister Ruby, friend Karen, and me...well we all divorced about the same time. So naturally we all met each other in a local bar/club spot. Bad news, divorced women on the loose. The first time I met Shirley, she was talking to my sister, Shirley said "that redheaded friend of yours is dancing with my ex-husband." Ruby said, "that's not my friend..that's my Sister!" We all became friends and tried to give as much anguish to ex's as we could. Well, Shirley always tried to get us to come and visit her in Savannah. We never made it. But now I have another reason to go to Big S...Hope to one day see you Paula. Take Care!
