New Town; Long-Time Friends

Waitsburg, WA

Somehow in all our communications with Gail and Joe we didn't get their address so when we drove into town, all we could do was call. But, they didn't answer. No way could we drive on out of town without seeing them. Then I remember Gail had posted photographs of their new home on Facebook. A bit of Facebook searching, and I find the photo.

Making a grid plan, we start driving up and down Waitsburg's streets to find a home that matches the photo. We'd covered all the numbered streets, were beginning the named streets, and there it was! Much fixed up since the Facebook photo was taken, but no question, we'd found the right house.

A couple of years ago, Gail and Joe moved to Waitsburg, a charming little town. Now they are enthusiastically throwing themselves into their new lives. Joe is building a small guitar repair business, mentoring young musicians, and making music of his own. Gail is growing as an artist, becoming a town volunteer star, and being the perfect friend and neighbor to everyone up and down the streets.


"If conversation was the lyrics, laughter was the music, making time spent together a melody that could be replayed over and over without getting stale."
