A Woman With Class - Friend's Friday

Susan and Rhonda - October '16

It was Stana's Femulate blog and Susan's that inspired me to start my blog.  It has been a wonderful ride and I promise to keep it going as long as I have something to say.  But I digress.  
Last week during my travels north to my high school reunion, I stopped in Susan's beautiful southern hometown. We had made arrangements ahead and Susan picked me up at my hotel.  

Having been out of the south for nearly 30 years there is one tradition that I miss; Southern Hospitality. What Susan did that afternoon was the embodiment of true Southern hospitality. She gave me the grand tour or her southern home town; the beautiful old homes, quaint downtown, lovely mountain vistas, and an art park. We got out and walked sharing stories of growing up in the rural south. As if I were with an old friend, nothing was off limit. We discussed my being transgender, relationships, travel, fashion and blogging.  

After my lovely tour of her town we headed to a close by internationally famous village and drove down it's main street.  Next we headed to a beautiful restaurant for dinner. There we talked, laughed and told stories for another two and a half hours - Just girlfriends. I did not want the evening to end.

Do follow Susan's blog.  There is wonderful advice on fashion and looking our best at any age. Also her site provides encouragement to get out and live. Susan's motto - "The second fifty years are the best." I could not agree more.   
You gave me your time, the most thoughtful gift of all. Thank you. 

I have a beautiful memory of that evening and a big smile.  Susan, thank you again. It warms my heart to be with a woman of true class and experience genuine southern hospitality.
