Reunion Perspective 

The following comments were given by a teacher on the night of a high school reunion. It seems to put into perspective of what reunions have come to represent. I thought it might be of some interest to those of us who may have a reunion coming up in the near future. 

     “Many of you have attended not only high school together, but junior high and sometimes even grammar school.  In your transition from childhood to adolescence, you shared many experiences both painful and triumphant and in many ways left an indelible imprint on each other.

     A reunion is a celebration of life; not just your life, but the lives of all those around you.  It offers you an opportunity to revisit a period of your past that had so much influence in guiding you to become who you are today.  It is an affirmation of your successful transition from youth to maturity and the good news is, you have survived.  Many of these people share that triumph with you tonight.  These are such infrequent yet very important opportunities in your life.  Thank you for letting me share this moment with you tonight.  I encourage you to attend all your school reunions.”

 HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE AND THINKING, SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD.  WELL.... YOU'LL LOVE THIS ONE.
 
 MY NAME IS ALICE SMITH AND I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST. I NOTICED HIS DDS DIPLOMA, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME.
 
 SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 30-ODD YEARS AGO.
 
 COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?
 
 UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.
 
 THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE. AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED CARTER RIVERSIDE HIGH SCHOOL.
 
 'YES. YES, I DID. I'M AN EAGLE,' HE GLEAMED WITH PRIDE.
 
 'WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?' I ASKED.

HE ANSWERED , 'IN 1975. WHY DO YOU ASK?'
 
 'YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!', I EXCLAIMED.
 
 HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.
 
 THEN, THAT UGLY, OLD, BALD, WRINKLED, FAT ASS, GRAY-HAIRED, DECREPIT SON-OF-A-BITCH ASKED,
 
 'WHAT DID YOU TEACH ???'

Class of '65 Reunion
( photos courtesy of Vicki Barnes Norris '65)

These are a few of the photos from Oct 29, 2005 at the Class of 65 Reunion. We invited everyone to attend our gathering, and we had several friends from other years, join us and help us celebrate. Many of us had not seen some of our classmates for 40 years.  And many of us have stayed friends through out the 40 years. It was a good time for all.
