some things money just can't buy

I was at a joint 50th birthday party last night for two friends of nearly 30 years standing with whom I once shared a flat as part of a street work project based in a Glasgow housing scheme. Domestic hygiene may not have been in our vocabulary but it was a life changing experience for which I will be forever grateful; as I am for their friendship still strong after almost 3 decades. Such things cannot be bought, but they are for me much more the bedrock of a contented life and have a value way beyond anything the illusory "golden calf' wealth of the market could ever offer. It was a great party and even better friendships.
