Lets talk about old friends

We all have friends that we have known over time. Sometimes these friends seem like the best ones in the world when we are around them, often, it seems like they will always be around.

Friends are transient.

I don't mean that in a bad way. Friends just come and go. Often, not by your or their choosing. Things just add up one day to a parting of ways. The really sad thing about this is that sometimes, with friends that aren't best friends... Friends that are just good friends - they can go away without even so much as a goodbye. You never say goodbye because you don't intend that last time you saw them to be "the" last time you would ever see them.

They move... You move... You get busy.

That last one was my excuse. I've been so busy over the last three years that pure exhaustion prevented me from keeping up the friendships that I really should not have left in the weeds.

So now I have a lot of work to do. I've got a ton of friends in Omaha that I do keep up with, but not as well as I should.

I've also got some people down here that I should follow up with... some that I don't even know how to get hold of.

How does one get hold of someone when you don't know where they are and their last known email and phone numbers are all dead?



  1. Friends have friends. If you know another friend of your friend, you might be able to get the contact made.
    Good luck.

  2. Hey Don... here's one friend who ain't heard from you in a coon's age.

    Do you still have that ugly green motorcycle? If so, you want to go riding some time?

  3. face book em i know its cliche and may sound stalkery but its okay cuz you knew em and they knew you! Good luck!
    ps. If its any consolation i think you're a great friend and i bet they're trying to do the same thing!
