My wife's best friend

Flash back 28 years ago, I had moved to Squirrel Hill (Pittsburgh) through the church (Living Stream Ministry) and was dating a divorcee sister, when all hell broke loose. The neighbor that my wife shared a duplex with, went nuclear and physically assaulted my wife to the point where she had to move out of her half of the house. Audrey worked at the Carnegie in the library's children section, she knew everyone in the city, but she only knew one person with a big enough heart to take her into her home until we could get an apartment. That was Ellen. Ellen was Japanese, and her husband was an engineer who would go back to work in Japan during the years we lived in Squirrel Hill.

So if you watch some old reruns of Mister Rogers, you will meet what were then Ellen's children, whom Audrey sent over to the show. By now, those kids are in their early 40's. Ellen lived just down the street from us, on Beacon street, and she would have us over for dinner, from time to time. So, while our own church excommunicated us (we both had been legally married - Christian churches tend to be idiots when it comes to divorce) we lived on with friends in the neighborhood, like Ellen.

Ellen eventually joined back up with her husband in Japan and still lives there today. Guess where in Japan? Yep, Fukushima. They lived through the meltdowns and the tsunami and the subsequent radiation cancers that the media refuses to talk about. Ellen is a woman of science. She has been treating herself, her family, and all her neighbors with homeopathic cures for the radiation... and all her neighbors were affected. No one escaped the radiation.

My wife remains close to Ellen, they communicate over the internet. Of course, Audrey is always preaching the gospel, which is received in the spirit, as the Japanese are a very spiritual people.

FTR, Audrey has turned 68 years old, I am now 61 years old, and our son of our old age Daniel will turn 23 years old on the 11th. Daniel will require one more semester in the Spring to graduate from UIC, so it will take him 5 years, he's an Industrial Engineer major. Daniel was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, he never met Ellen or her children.

I enjoy reading your posts, in part because you discuss things that are actually important and don't get bogged down in the minutia that most of us dwell on regularly. It's a refreshing perspective.

I feel better knowing that Audrey and Ellen found each other....It makes for a better world.

Thank you for sharing. Pax vobiscum.

The wife and I have been together 28 years, but her friendship with Ellen goes back 5 years earlier. I thought it was interesting that these two gals intersected with Mr. Rogers and with the Fukushima disaster. At least, it wasn't politics as usual around here. Thanks for commenting Zam, put a smile on my face in the middle of the constitutional crisis happening right now.
