Kate turns 41 this weekend, and I'll be 49 in October. Time passes so much faster as we age. But surprises like this come around to make up for it--this week I heard from an old flame. We had a bitter separation 20 years ago and haven't talked since the Psychedelic Furs were at their peak.
Here is Kathy Hodge in 1984, in Columbia, Missouri, when she was a critical care nurse, and as a firefighter (at left) in Washington State in a 2004 photo. What a cool surprise to see what she's become, and I'm glad she looked me up.
