The Claw lives on! Friendships live on! Viva Portlandia!
Best grad school buddy and his sweet little girl:
[The “four families” as we were called for about 20 years of my upbringing, gathered for a dinner out and a toast to THE CLAW!]
[Three North Carolina/Penland friends gather 3000 miles away in Portland for a morning of surprise sunshine, blue skies, and an impromptu visit to the 24-hour Church of Elvis.]
[Little fiction me with two genius writers, also fellow Pacific Alumns.]
[My first “best friend” as a girl, Jennie. As she puts it, we’ve “known each other since eggs.”]
