I know it is Friday and not Throwback Thursday, but surely there must be a place for "Fond Friday Memories"? Tomorrow we attend my DH's 55th class reunion, so I thought I would post a few old pics of some of his classmates. He was one of the lucky ones who lived in the same neighborhood all his growing up years and graduated with people he started to school with way back in first grade!
I am guessing this is sixth grade.
Those awkward years!
Straighten up now, Class.
Yes, Teacher is satisfied.
Just hanging out.
Cool leather jacket there!
(DH just informed me he is NOT in this pic.)
On the street where you live!
I heard lots of stories about all the fun they had in
My DH's senior pic.
Class of '61.
As for me ... in 1961, I was in 6th grade myself experiencing those awkward years wondering about my future. Here he is. A little older, a little gray at the temples. I commented on that when we first met and he replied that he hadn't been to the Temple! Silly.
I was looking forward to this reunion, but now vanity is causing me to hesitate. The timing of my cataract surgery and the reunion are clashing. No make-up for a week. Yikes! I have to go looking like this? At least I only have to wear my pirate shield at night.
Kinda funny that I wore my black and white
striped pirate top the day of the surgery!
No matter whether there is excitement going on in our lives,
or simply an "ordinary" day,
we are truly blessed!
