Rocky Mountain Reunion

August 31, 2012 | My Jottings

In the not-too-distant future, my oldest friend Denel and I will be having our First Annual Lupi-Soo Reunion. (You can see photos and read more about Denel and our 48 year-long friendship here.)

She and I have decided that as long as we’re able, we will meet each other once a year, flying from almost opposite ends of the country, for a long weekend together…to talk, catch up, rest, read, hike, talk, sleep, laugh, reminisce, pray, eat, and talk some more.

I chose the first place we’re meeting, and I picked a remote cabin in the Rocky Mountains. Yay! Denel will pick our destination next year, and I’m wondering if the words beach or ocean might play in her mind as she chooses where The Second Annual Lupi-Soo Reunion will be. My dear friend loves the beach.

The photos of the cabin below are the actual place we’ll be staying. The other pictures are just representative of things we hope to do during our long and restful weekend together.

When you’re down and troubled, and you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me, and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.

You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah,
You’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
Soon, you’ll hear me knocking at your door.

You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running, running, yeah, yeah, to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes I will.

Now ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend
when people can be so cold
They’ll hurt you
Yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Ah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running, running, yeah, yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes I will


You’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend?
Ain’t it good to know, ain’t it good to know, ain’t it good to know
You’ve got a friend

Oh yeah now, you’ve got a friend.
Yeah baby, you’ve got a friend.
Oh yeah, you’ve got a friend.

(words and music by Carole King)

    I’ve never been there before Ember…I’m hoping altitude sickness won’t be an issue since we’ll be at 7600 feet above sea level! Exciting though… Xxoo
