“Deer” Friends, 1995

Rudolph with your lips so big and pouty, won’t you .. oh never mind. In their decades of friendship, Sue B and Kim B never shied away from stylish headgear.

What can you say about a friend who has been through so many of life’s ups and downs with you? I know what I’d say…. “Diaphanous, thy name is Sue Brophey!” How much fun have we had over the past quarter century? Sounds crazy to think the we’ve even been around for a “quarter century” much less known each other this long. But, it’s the only way to explain the accumulation of so many fond memories – not to mention all these children hanging around! HOW is it possible that we have kids that are teenagers? We’re teenagers for crying out loud…..Aren’t we? To put the years into perspective a little, let me remind you that on my 25th birthday you uttered these now infamous words: “You’re closer to 50 than the day you were born.” This sentiment has become a bit of a tradition for us as we’ve managed to rib each other every year since (particularly on those milestone years like 35, 40 etc.) with the horrible mathematical equations of “you’re closer to 70, 80 etc. than the day you were born….”

OK, so I’m sure the obvious is not lost on you as we celebrate this most wonderful occasion – your big 5-0!

Don’t make me say it!

Here’s what I will say though: “You’ve NEVER looked better!”

I look forward to the next 25 years, Sue. Your friendship is one of the blessings of my life! I cannot wait to be able to say to you, “You’re closer to one hundred and fifty than the day you were born!”

Love always, Kim B
