One of the great side benefits of living in London is that it is both an "end" travel destination as well as a "gateway" to other places. As such, the Budman and I have been the wonderful recipients of many visits from friends and family who either are coming to London for business or pleasure OR enroute to somewhere else.
In yet another such meeting, we had dinner a couple of weeks ago with college friends who were in London celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary. As if that is not enough to stop us dead in our tracks, it occurred to us that we had known each other for 30 years.
Time stops for no man.
