This past Saturday evening Patty and I joined a number of graduates of Northwest Classen High School to celebrate our 25th Anniversary Reunion. Yes, that would be the “Silver One.” Saturday
morning a few of us set out for a round of golf at Lincoln Park Golf Course. We played the East Course. Some would remind us this used to be referred to as the “Ladie’s Course.” The temperature rose as did the scores. Randy, Moose, Mike, Chas and “Willis” (a friend of Chas’s) played a six-some game of “Wolf.” It was fun to see some guys I had not seen in at least 15 years (although Chas and me enjoyed some Thai food in OKC some months ago).
Later in the evening we met at the Belle Isle Brewery to get re-acquainted. There is little doubt I have changed – a few inches taller and a few pounds heavier. Mix in less hair on my head and more on my face and some of my old classmates wondered who was with Patty. About ten o-clock a band began to play and we found ourselves screaming to be heard and moving to the back of the room in which we were gathered. On the way out Kendall asked if Patty and I were still married. I told him, “Yes for 23 years.
I don’t know what she saw in me but I am glad she did.” He laughed. We left.
We had a fun time.
