Friendship within a life can come and go, but those that stay with you for a lifetime is something to be appreciative of. When a persons wife comes to an interview with him because, even with a collage education, his english is less than acceptable, would you hire him? Yes! It was a good decision and perhaps a strange way to start a friendship. But, after he follows you through five different companies for over 50 years and still has lunch with you once a month after your both retired, you recognize a true friendship.
That’s one of the reasons I write the type of books that appear in the Pok’along series. To show that friendship can develop in the strangest ways.
