Dad keeps in touch with a few of his friends from high school. This is "Hargrove." Dad usually refers to most people (other than his relatives) by their last name only. I found out this summer that Hargrove's first name is Ted.
Hargrove lives in nearby Sanford, Maine, and came to visit us for a short time during our big week. I don't remember the reason for his visit, but it was nice to meet him.
I've met other old friends of Dad during visits to Niagra Falls, New York, and San Bernardino, California. I suppose my kids will be meeting some of my old friends someday. I wonder where I'll find them?
