Catching up with a friend

I just had a nice catch up with my friend pat on the phone! He was in a great mood. We hadnt talked since last Thursday. We talk a lot, usually he’ll call me in the evenings, for about half an hour. We just chatted about the dogs, and about our weekend, and he was telling me another girl we both know, whose blind, is coming to visit him tomorrow with her partner. He really doesnt want her visiting, but he couldnt think of a good excuse to get out of it. I really wish pat lived closer. He’s a good friend, I don’t really have any local friends now who live close by. I have a couple of friends that I know from when I used to go to the basement club, but we dont hardly meet up or we havent since covid hit. I wish the basement club was still going. Its closed down now though. It was a great place for people who have mental health issues to go to hang out and meet other like minded people.
