About Old Love

By Norm Foster - A Greatest Hit! 2017

Norm Foster's Old Love is a story of courtship, rekindled romance and the indomitability of hope. Bud’s first monologue, sets the story:

Bud: This is the story of my pursuit of a good woman.  And I don’t mean just any good woman, because I know there are millions of good women out there.  I’m sure there are some here right now.  But, I have a particular woman in mind.  Her name is Molly. 

I first met Molly twenty-five years ago.  We met only three times, very briefly, over the course of the next three years.  We were both married back then.  Me to my wife Kitty, and Molly to Arthur Graham, the owner of the company I worked for.  Eventually Arthur Graham sold the company and I didn’t see Molly again, but, she would always come back to me.  Sometimes in a dream.  Sometimes while I was just sitting at home going over the monthly bills.  Or sometimes when I was driving over a long distance.  Her face would suddenly pop into my mind at these times and I would wonder how she was doing.
