30 Years? Couldn’t Tell at the NWC ’81 Reunion

Last weekend Patty and I attended our 30th high school reunion. I know we don’t look like we have been out of high school that long. Bite your tongue!

I was glad to snap this shot. These girls spent some time together “back then.” Seeing them laugh about those days was fun.

Like many of my classmates, I could describe some things that have changed. Already someone pointed out Chas is quite gray. Chuck belted out not just a few songs during the karaoke portion of the evening. Sure, we all look a bit different – some more, some less.

What has not changed is the camaraderie that goes with enduring those middle and late adolescent years together. There may have been a time or two the laughter sounded a bit like those days.

Patty mentioned that we should plan to get together more frequently as we get older. I hope we will. Who knows what our memories will be like nearing 60 in ten years. Did I really type that? Ouch.

Joe put together just the right atmosphere. No frills. No pressure. No high expectations. Just gather then reminisce. And, there was plenty of that.
