MY FRIEND LORETTA
That's what friends are all about, right? Faithful, true, keeps confidences, always encouraging, ready for an outing with happy spontaneity. I respect the fact that she knows how to hold her tongue in times of crisis when I've made a bad decision. Yet, she doesn't hesitate speaking her mind when she's got something important to say.
She has kept me from danger with her wisdom, and entertained me on long drives. She comes along only when invited and never feels slighted. She knows no revenge and never complains of hurt feelings even when I tell her I've had enough of her for one day.
Loretta arrived WITH my big red Ford Expedition. She lives right there in the dash and comes to life with a push of a button. Her last name is GPS. Whatever would I do without Loretta? I'd be lost!
Egads! I've befriended a computer!!!
