Just want to let you know that there is some chatter on Facebook about organizing a 50th.  Started by Bob Bohls, Roger Warnock, Sylvia Saldana and a few others have commented that they would be interested in helping out.  Perhaps this means  that something will be organized.

I’ve created a facebook group linking to the class web site.
My thinking is that it may be a good tool for organizing and encouraging more posts and updates.
I sent an invite to join the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1914338395471607/.

How does everyone feel about an initial informal get together to start planning sometime this September for our 50th next year? Many of you have offered to help make this happen. During our initial meeting, we can discuss who does what and what needs to be done. Among the issues that we might consider are:
• Date
• Where to hold the main event
• A possible Friday event
• A possible Sunday event
• Attendance
o A plan to find classmates
o Get email addresses or Facebook info and phone numbers for classmates
o Update those that have passed away
Please, reply by September 5th.
Note: Let us know if you have an idea for a place to meet. I'm assuming a public place with a reasonably private room.
Select all that apply (You can add options to the list below.):


I plan to attend
I want to help but I cannot attend

I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly. As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avante garde on my patio. I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love ... I will.

I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.
I know I am sometimes forgetful.
But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car?

But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.


I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.
So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.


As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore.
I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day(if I feel like it).

MAY OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART!


MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RAINBOW OF SMILES ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART FOREVER AND EVER! FRIENDS FOREVER!
