I don't know if it'll be worth going to mine. I pretty much know what the 3 people in my class that I liked have been up to....

OK so facebook out of the blue assigned a new web address to me. What is up with that?

It seems some people still have a random address but some of my friends have a similar "firstname.lastname" format. But mine has a .7 at the end.

It's been 34 years since I gradiated HS. Have at least been in touch with most all the friends I had back then. Only a couple I haven't heard from. Recently caught up with the girl I took to the prom. Some people are the same, some are completely different, most are very involved in the lives of the children and yes even grand children.

I gradiated in a class of 635, our ceremony was held in the local convention center arena. Didn't even know most of them.

I went to my 10 year high school reunion in Montgomery Alabama. Mostly because it was convenient time to visit my brother. Since I was only in that school for two years and I always busy & I was always taking pictures I did not make any close friends. I moved away from there 5 years later and I have not seen or talked to any of them except at the reunion. I have skipped every reunion since. I might try for the 40th.

My wife went to a high school that was founded 100 years ago. Many of the folks she has know since 1st grade. The all talked about the teachers and knew that in a year they would have a certain teacher. All of that is alien to me. Since I went to 11 schools in 12 years of school I was the new kid every year except one.

I went to Beth's 20 year and skipped all of mine. I had a great time in HS but I have moved on and don't need to relive my glory days. I did own the school though. License and car in 9th grade, Starting defensive lineman on the football team, and 3.8gpa. I got away with murder.

I run into people I went to school with from time to time and they remember me, I usually have no clue who they are, and really could care less after the fact.

Morning all.

Gunna be a busy one today, 5hit loads to get done

HS reunions are not a big thing over here. Never been to one. I go and watch local football if/when I'm back in Victoria (if I'm there in winter), it's probably the same thing as a HS reunion. Nearly nobody left my home town.

May pop in during the day to say hello.

Back to the grind
