45th Class Reunion

Well, it's over...It was a beautiful day at the park we chose for our reunion picnic.  There was tons of good food, lots of pictures taken, many friendships renewed and lots of old people. No, all kidding aside, it was a blast !  We only had about 70 grads (plus spouses in some cases) show up out of a class of 214, but those of us that were there had a wonderful time. We mourned the loss of those that have passed away in the last 5 years and proudly showed pictures of kids and grand kids. We talked about what to do for our 50th and reminisced about the good old days when we were young with our lives still ahead of us. Most of us lived in a rural area and were picked up by big yellow buses each morning. At one point today there were a bunch of us, who were on the same bus line, sharing remberances of some of those bus rides, especially in the winter when the roads were bad.  There were no "snow days" back then.  It didn't matter that I didn't loose all those pounds that I wanted to loose...a lot of the former "jocks" are bald and look 9 months pregnant.  If you've never gone to a high school reunion, you should give it a try.  It's like a trip down memory lane. So now I'm on a count down again....I have 5 years to loose some weight before the next one.   :)

I`m so glad you had a good time.  I`ve never been to a school reunion but have seen many old school friends, and like you said, many of the men are bald, grey and fat too...lol! :-)

I went to my 20th year reunion last year..  It was a little weird, because although some of us have changed, some of us hadn't, and at the same time, a lot of us had a lot more in common with eachother.  I hope to be able to attend my 45th!  (I'd love to see some of some of the bald "jocks" look 9 mos. pregnant..ha ha ha).  Thanks for sharing..that was sweet.  Julie :)

MY 35TH IS COMING UP THIS YEAR.  I DON'T THINK I AM TRAVELING BACK TO NEW YORK FOR THIS PARTY.  IT WOULD BE FUN TO SEE EVERYONE.
