    Now where is Google Street View when you really want it?:p

    I've never been to any of mine, nor my wife's. Looking back, most of my mates were ash wholes. And they'd say the same about me. Since I left HS I've seen prolly 5 peeps I went to school with. Time moves in one direction, and if you get stuck in the past, you miss out on whats happening today and tomorrow.

    I'm never gonna understand why people get all outta joint over being called 'old', or 'young' for that matter. To some people here, I'd be old, to others, I'd be young. So what?!? Call me whatever the hell you want. For that matter, report me if you want.

    In my view people don't want to be old because they think it puts them closer to death. As Rick pointed out, young people die every day too. The funny thing is, when people do die, other say "he went to a better place" Funny, cause most people - assuming they are reasonably healthy - do NOT want to die. So, why do they fight going to a 'better place"? Things that make ya go Hmmmm . . .

    Anywho . . . Let's get back to those pics of Gamma wigglin through the window in that lil black dress . . .

    My class graduated in 1982,havent been to any reunions nor do I want to.There's a reason we choose not to stay in contact with certain people from our past.If others want to,that's OK too.

    I went to one . . . it wasn't bad . . . as others have said . . . people change and relationships change . . . that cool kid back in high school who all the hot girls thought was fantastic looking was bald . . . and the hot girls who I thought were so beyond me . . . well many of them were quite pudgy. The nicest thing was being able to talk to folks that wouldn't have given me the time of day back in high school . . . as I said . . . once folks experience real life they often change.

    I have been to 10 and 20. I enjoyed them both. I went to the same school K-12 and there were just under 200 in the class of '88. I'd say at least 1/2 of us were there the whole time. I think its funny that we all became best friends for a weekend and then pretty much forgot about each other. I'll go to the next one. Mrs. Flatbedford moved around a lot as a kid so she doesn't understand why I would want to see any of these people. Though many years a have gone by, I still feel a bond with the folks I went to school with for 13 years.
