Class of 1965!!

Time sure does fly....I just can't believe I've been graduated from high school 50 years already! (I'm not old enough...LOL) I thought this was a real I bit the bullet and went to this reunion. The last one I went to was my 20th.  I'm really glad I went this time, I saw some that I had not seen in the 50 years since graduation and others that I have not seen in the thirty years since the last one I went to.  It's a good thing we all had name tags, cause there were some I would never have known otherwise.  I am the one that moved away and they all grew old together....still the same "clicks" too....ROFLMAO!! Here is a copy of all of us that attended...I think we had 131 in our graduating class, 26 has passed on and some are in nursing homes and some were just not able to attend, but there were about 90 people (with the spouses and guests) that attended the dinner and dance on Saturday night.  Not a very good photo quality, but the lighting was poor! This is classmates only, I am first one standing in front row...LOL
There was a sock hop for all of us on Friday night, but I didn't make that as my niece Amy had a baby shower that night at the same time and I chose to go to that instead...I did a little Thank You for Lindsey the young lady that hosted it....we had a great time. The QP is by Neli at Lugar Encantado Da Neli
It rained the whole time I was in south Georgia and from what I hear we had lots of storms and strong winds here too, I know I had turbulence on the way over and back and the trip back was delayed an hour and a half and it is attempting to cloud over now. Supposedly we are to have some really rough weather this afternoon and evening.  We need the rain, we just don't need the bad stuff like hail and tornadoes.  But, we have to take what Mother Nature gives us, right?  I am going to close this early and get my "room" ready for the bad weather, get my cell phone and both iPads charged fully, change batteries in my flashlight, get some bottled water, etc and put in there and get my fur babies prepared to get in there if we need too!  Chat more with you next time....I really have a lot of scrapping to catch up with.  Y'all be safe and make lots and lots of memories to share! Hugs! Mat


  1. Boa tarde, querida amiga Mat!

    Good afternoon, dear friend Matt! What class (class) large, beautiful and cheerful! It is great to see all together again after so long. I think we all have many things to tell. It must have been a great meeting! Dear friend, I hope you have a great day, full of happiness! Hugs, Neli.

  3. Mati, it's great you've made it to the class reunion. I'm so far away from PA, I haven't made it to any of them. They keep in touch with me by Christmas card and let me know which ones have 'passed'. My next one will be in 2017 and that will be 60 years. One year I sent a letter to them and filled in the details that I thought they might be interested in. That's a great way to keep in touch. My whole class was only 50 kids. And we lost the first one 2 weeks later. Your picture looks great. Every one up and healthy!

  4. What a great photo of your reunion. Gosh, I have one coming up in 2017. It will be my 60th. Goodness, where has all the time gone? I haven't been to a reunion in more than 40 years. I don't even know if I would recognize anyone now. So many of my classmates have passed on. Maybe I'll look into this to see if there will be a reunion coming up.

    I've been following the wicked weather on the TV. You be safe my friend. Keep your fur babies close by till the severe weather warnings are over.

    It's time for me to feed my little guy, so I'm off to the kitchen to see if there is anything tasty in the fridge for him. You be safe and have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  5. Must have been a enlightning and great reunion.
    Gosh, I can understand that you couldn;t recognize some of them after such a long time.
    With such kind of events and happenings you really see that we all grow older and older LOL.
    Hope the wicked weather didn;t do any damage and it wasn;t too horrible.
    about to post on my blog now, because I was busy this morning, again.
    But... weekend is waving at me now, in the hope it will be just a quiet and uneventfull one. Yeah, sounds boring, but oh it is soooo nice at times.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
