Class of '98

My 10 year high school reunion was this past weekend.  Initially, I was only going to the Saturday night event, but last minute I changed my mind because more people were showing up Friday than Saturday. It turned out to be a great decision. After I visited with quite a few people, we ended up around the corner at a local coffee shop with several of my classmates and played games until about 11 PM. I also found out that I really enjoy the game Mad Gab. Beware party people!

Saturday, Brad played golf with my dad, and my mom and I went shopping in downtown Corsicana. There are a couple of antique stores I love to dig through, and I found something beautiful that I can't wait to put up in the house. We also talked Christmas lists, and that, my friends, is always a good time.

Saturday night was not quite as fun as Friday, but there were a few people there that I had not laid eyes on since May of 1998, so it was good to catch up with them. I learned what people do, who they married, how many kids, where they live, etc. It's hard to summarize 10 years of living in a 5 minute conversation. It has made me reflect on life in a small town, which is not bad at all, despite the fact that everyone tries to escape! There is no traffic, and there is a greater sense of community, in my opinion. And, we have a really good bakery, plus they are getting a Denny's.

I guess we'll do it again in 10 years. Three cheers for the gold and the blue!
