40th class reunion

Ok, so this isn't painting related, but I wanted to share it.
Where has time gone?!?! It certainly does not seem like it has been 40 years since 82 kids walked across the stage at North Greene High School to receive our diplomas. Times were simpler then. We were all country kids and had responsibilities of feeding the calves before going to school. We mowed lawns and hoed tobacco. We played ball and rode bikes everywhere. Doors were never locked and everyone knew everyone else. God forbid if you did something you weren't supposed to do, because the grapevine of communication notified your parents quicker than the speed of light.
The Class of 1969 celebrated Saturday night at Locust Springs Christian Retreat, a lovely and peaceful site just about a mile from our old stomping grounds. It was a lovely evening renewing friendships.

    My 40th is next year.
    I am so glad you had such a good time!
    There is something so special about being with people you have known all your life. Continuity.
