We are three friends, colleagues for nearly three decades, who have recently either retired or taken other jobs. While we don't work together anymore, we miss one another. As we were faced with going our own separate ways, Sherri, the inspiration, said, "We have to make sure we get together, because it will be too easy to get busy and not to make time for one another." Lu, the encourager, said, "Well, let's plan adventures and we can blog about the places go and the food we eat." You've got your dreamers, your thinkers and your doers! We think it makes a good team! So, that is how I ended up writing Three Friends and a Fork.
