New cars when the class of '56 graduated:
On the day of Sherry’s class reunion, she was up earlier ate, had coffee and was taking her bath when I got up. So she had my cereal ready for milk and I ate alone. Just for kicks I turned on the TV. Just 15 minutes of it and I was in a buzz.
Fast talking news commentators, faster talking actors advertising, weathermen who can give a forecast in 8.5 seconds.
I learned that we make our own medical diagnosis by actors and drug companies, who tell you to ASK YOU DOCTOR ABOUT THIS!
That reminded me of my BIL who said His doctor would prescribe every med he asked for, because he saw it on TV.
Anyway, I do spend as much time in front of this monitor than many people do in front of a TV, but I do get to interact with REAL ‘good’ folks like you. AND you guys don’t yell at me.
That reminds me of Grandson Ben who was once visiting and we were in church. The pastor got wound up one Sunday morning and Ben pulled my sleeve and whispered, “Grandpa, why is he yelling at us?” He will never know how many times in church I have thought of that. But I digress!
Sherry looks forward to the reunions. Many get disappointed that others do not feel the same and never attend. Some disparaging words are said, LOL. They do wonder why the most famous member of their class (a well-known pro baseball player) never attends. There may be a story there some would not like to hear.
Of course the reunion was fun and most had a great time. It was very informal and held at a Jackson’s Cafeteria at noon. I am sorta hoping they skip a couple years, before the next one. It gets a little confusing for the ‘committee’ to make phone contact with ALL class mates. I suggested they mail out the information and folks who don’t want to attend can just throw it away instead of trying to explain why they are NOT attending. But it is NOT my reunion and this is my personal opinion and not that of my sweetheart.
I mentioned that to another husband and he laughed, but they like to talk to the old classmates coming or not. He is right!
As is said many times, "I never knew Sherry went to school with such OLD people!"
PS Black and RED are the school colors
