Tomorrow...

I leave to go to my 30 year high school reunion. On the class website where quite a few of us have posted our "Where are they now?" info, we all keep asking, "How the h -e- hockey sticks did we get this old?" It's been interesting to read other's stories. Somehow I expected all those pretty, popular kids to get through life without changing and without facing difficulties. I'm not surprised by my life and changes (well the Rev. in front of my name still is a little surprising), but I expect them to have stayed the same - same personalities, same looks. It's an interesting phenomenon. We'll see how it goes at the reunion. I saw quite a few of them 10 years ago, but somehow this one makes us all more on an even keel. Lots of them have grown children and grandchildren. Again, it should be interesting.

On another note, I will be one of three clergypersons leading a memorial service for our classmates who have died (43 of 500 that we know of). I've been debating what to wear - men clergy never have this issue. The other two clergy persons are Catholic priests. What to wear isn't an issue for them. Today at Dogblogger's suggestion, I looked for a dark suit. I found a black one that fits for only $20!!!! It will be perfect. Not high quality, but not planning for it to fit for too long. My mom hates me to wear black as it's not my best color. Mom, it's a memorial service and the other two clergy will be wearing collars. This is what I need to wear.

Gifted and Talented is as I type working on "Friends are Friends Forever" by Michael W. Smith. He will play it during the powerpoint showing the yearbook pics of our classmates who have died.

Well, I'll post next week and let you know how this meeting up with my past goes.

When I was a student in Catholic college, we made fun of a couple of priests because they never matched their blacks.

Have fun at the reunion!

The last high school reunion I went to was when I was about 30. I found that people who were 'great' in high school weren't anymore and the ones who were late bloomers really came into their own.

Have a wonderful time! I won't be able to get to mine later this summer, so I will live vicariously through yours. (43 seems like a lot of deaths! We have had half a dozen out of a class of 165 or so.)

Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

Have a great time~
My classmates seem to be starting our 20th reunion (technically next year) a little bit early due to the Facebook phenomenon. Very interesting to look at my Friends list. Not the same as it would've been 20 years ago. But friends now, nonetheless! And yes, a Friend's a Friend Forever!
