My 55th high school class reunion starts at 3PM today and runs until we get bored. We're all bringing desserts and the class fund is paying for everything else. We always have it at a private pavilian that one of the guys built. He has a very successful excavating business and owns lots of land around the business. He put in a pond and built the pavilian with a big wood-burning grill at one end and lots of picnic tables. There's even a one-hole out-house. How can we go wrong? Hubby and I baked cookies, but we cheated. We bought the dough ready-made and baked it. They came out nice, though. I don't think anyone will mind even if they notice the difference.
I don't think that anyone is coming from far away. Lots of the class members who live right around here don't even come! I think that's rude. We used to make the trip up from Texas whenever we could manage. Hubby's reunion is one year ahead of mine - he graduated in '61 and I graduated in '62. We were both valedictorians of our classes, Hubby because he worked really hard and studied all the time and me because school was really easy for me. I read the material the night before each test and promptly forgot all of it as soon as the test was over! I had a 96% average for four years - not too shabby. The girl who placed 2nd had a 92% average. If I've never told you about my adventures shortly before graduation, tell me and I'll post it.
Time for some early lunch, then I'm off to the shower.
