There are probably some, but not many that I have known, feelings better than that of knowing a dear friend who has been far away will soon be near again. That cherished memories will have new laughs, new books, and new cups of hot coffee. That once again, you'll have a good reason to be late from lunch. Instead, you will be climbing up-hill with your arms full of treasures from the antique mines of Pike Place. Making off like pack mice in a busy world. And you won't be alone.
