At the Reuben awards in Huntington Beach, Ca. recently, Cathy Guisewite collected a few longtime friends together for lunch. The theme was “Thorns and Roses.” We each briefly said what had happened to us during the past year – good and bad. There were some amazing stories. We all got to know each other just a little better!
