I have never had a lifelong pal,

but I have had friends:

(1)  My body, which has been wonderfully good to me,
and in my 81st year has given me no aches or pains or nasty conditions.
(2)  Dogs.
(3)  The BBC (mainly Radio 4, but in the 1960s and 1970s also Radio 3).
Books (mostly ‘literary’ novels).
(5) Plants, including trees.  

Humans (other than my mother and her sister) come a poor sixth.

I nominate my body as my best friend and lifelong pal.

Wait a minute....you still have your man in Canada's land. Who still have your art work.

Thank you, Jindřich -you are very kind.
But can A Pal (especially a lifelong one) be someone whom I have never met ?

I have a new pal in my house : a lovely big spider who likes exploring, and sometimes falls into the bath, poor thing. I wonder how to make a special Spider Ladder so she can climb out without help.
