A very special afternoon

on November 12, 2015

Yesterday, Anthony’s best friend of over 50 years, Baz, and his beautiful wife, Julie, visited us at the nursing home. It had been awhile since the ‘boys’ had seen each other because I can no longer physically manage outings with Anthony due to his decreased mobility. But Ants has been mentioning Baz lately so I thought I’d just invite this lovely couple as a surprise for Ants.

I got to the nursing home at noon and helped Ants with his lunch. He was a bit blah and not very responsive but, bingo, when Baz and Julie entered the room, his face lit up!

Julie was the one who took yesterday’s photo of Ants and me. She also took this one which I am going to show Anthony today.


Isn’t it a beauty! And here is the beautiful photographer herself.


She and I caught up as Ants and Baz reminisced. At one point, completely out of context in terms of what Baz was saying, Ants looked at him and said, “I love you and you love me.”

Thank you, Baz and Julie!
