You gotta have friends

Dr. Jen flew into California yesterday. She is here for a work project and we are grateful to her employer for her flight from Maryland. Her California ladies jumped into their cars after work and met her in Vacaville for dinner. 
We spent a few precious hours catching up. It was so good to hear about what's been happening in everyone's lives. 
We miss you, Jen. We miss you all the time. 
My Dad played Bette Midler all the time on the record player and this was one of my favorites. 


Bette Midler – Friends Lyrics

And I am all alone.
There is no one here beside me.
And my problems have all gone.
There is no one to deride me.

But you got to have friends.
The feeling's oh so strong.
You got to have friends
To make that day last long.

I had some friends but they're gone,
Somethin' came and took them away.
And from the dusk 'til the dawn
Here is where I'll stay.

Standing at the end of the road, boys,
Waiting for my new friends to come.
I don't care if I'm hungry or poor,
I'm gonna get me some of them.

Cause you got to have friends.
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, friends.
That's right you, oh you, yeah you,
I said you gotta have some friends,
I'm talkin' about friends, that's right, friends.
Friends, friends, friends.

I had some friends, oh, but they're all gone, gone,
Someone came and snatched them away.
And from the dusk until the very dawn, you know,
Here is where I gotta stay, here is where I gotta stay.

And I'm standing at the end of a real long road
And I'm waiting for my new friends to come.
I don't care if I'm hungry or freezin' cold,
I'm gonna get me some of them.

Cause you gotta have friends,
That's right, friends, friends.
I gotta me my, I gotta me my, I gotta me my,
Look around and see all of my friends.
Oh, friends, that's right, friends, friends,
Friends, friends, friends, friends, oh,
Friends, you gotta have friends...
