Default Type of Friends I Keep

I was going through my old address book (yeah, the one with little pieces of paper sticking out, with phone numbers forgotten, and addresses that are no longer valid).

I was looking at the names of friends and past acquaintances and realized something.

Those I keep as friends run the gamut from red necks to nerds to millionaires.

But they all have one thing in common.

They are true to their word, hold up to a promise, and keep the vows and oaths they have taken.

Apparently, mine are mostly old.
Seems I have to cross more out every year.

I only have 1 who lives in another state, seems every time I make a friend they turn out to be jackasses who end up trying to use me for money and I don't tolerate those kinda people at all so technically I have no friends :-(

I have only a handful. But they're good friends.

I am blessed. I have several good, honest, loving friends that I know I can depend on at any given moment.

There are a few people who would bail me out of jail, but none who would go with me.

I keep my friends few and far between. I never found a better companion than guns and working.

I don't have a lot of friends, but am often amazed at the quality of friends God has blessed me with. My goal is to be as good of a friend as they have been to me, the bar is set high.
