Making New Friends...

"Strangers are just friends waiting to happen."
Rod McKuen

Remember I told you all about the visitors from India through the 
Group Study Exchange program for Rotary?
Our house guest, Raju, gave us this lovely carved elephant
at the end of his stay...
A sweet reminder of a lovely time meeting a new friend!!!
