Reunions and Get-togethers

This weekend was my husband's 30 year reunion. We kicked off the celebration by heading out to Scappoose to grab a bite to eat at the Varsity Grill and Pub. Some people went to the Homecoming football game. Not me. It was too cold for me to sit outside on those bleachers back 30 years ago and you can forget about getting me out there on those cold hard seats nowadays.

But it was so much fun sitting and chatting with "kids" I got to know through my husband at UofO, back in 1979-83. A lot of the Scappoose clan came to our wedding in the spring of 1983. In fact one of them was a bridesmaid. So, it was a lot of fun catching up and going down memory lane.

I hope we get together again - not waiting another 30 years or so. :)

Have any of you gone to reunions lately? What did you think? What was the most memorable thing you experienced?

I've never been to a reunion, but I think it would be a lot of fun to see where people are now in their lives. Sounds like you had a great time.

My high school class was small (like 22 of us)so we have a reunion every three years. Next summer will be our 40th! Plans are already in the works. No matter how many or how few of us manage to show up we always have a rousing good time, a week-long celebration. Members of other classes are always welcome. The more the merrier.

Christina, Adrienne and Brenda: You'll have to make one - at least. They are such a blast.

Bish: That is soooo cool!

I remember Kelly - I loved hearing about it 'cuz I knew my turn was coming.

TTWC: I wonder what else we have in common :)
