Now for a little Rambling.

I still have the biggest smile on my face, from getting together with all these friends on Saturday Evening.
We sure didn't feel as if we were in our 60s as we laughed, reminisced and joked.    
I've got to get around and find a place to put the photos, so everyone can upload theirs and we can order from them.  
If you've never attended a class reunion, especially if you were from a smaller school, you should consider it. 
Or hostess a Mini Reunion of just the ones you were closest to, if you were from a bigger school.
You'd be surprised what memories come floating into your mind.
Joyce and I had big plans after graduation, we were saving money to go to school and have a career.
Of course that never happened for me.  My dad insisted I go to college, which I was not ready to do, so I left home.  Am I sorry?  In some ways, yes, but I still don't think the plans he had for me, was what I wanted, either.  I've never been school teacher material, or a secretary either.
Now if I could have chosen the courses I wanted to take, creative writing, and a few others, without the other things, then yes, I may have enjoyed it.
Might have made life easier, but then, I've never really been unhappy with my life, or really needed a lot of money
that being said, no, I am not sorry.

Jettie-It looks like you all had a great time. I see lots of smiles there. It is hard sometimes to believe we are the age that we are, isn't it? Especially when we get together with old friends. The years just seem to drop away.

You are just so honest and down-to-earth real, Jettie. It is one of the things I love best about you. xo Diana

Love all the photos and I made the same choices you did and I do not regret them either. I don't need much to make me happy at all. Love is the key to happiness.
Jettie- start up a facebook page and invite everyone in there. You can do one that's closed so not just anyone can peek in. You can all stay in touch and leave messages for everyone at one time and everyone can upload photos and things. I did one for my and my cousins and its great!
