As Time Goes By - 30 Year High School Reunion - 060608

Play it Sam. Play as Time Goes By. ~ Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) in Casablanca
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. ~ Abraham Lincoln
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. ~ Henry David Thoreau
I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart. ~ e. e. cummings

Went to my 30 year Gainesville High School Reunion last weekend. Kind of nice to be with a bunch of people that are also turning 50 in the next two years.

Out of 479 graduates, about 120 showed up. 11 had passed on. One guy had 6 children and 4 grand-children.

There were only a few of us that had not gotten married. There were more than a few that had gotten divorced and a good number of re-marriages. Many had kids in college.

People looked old, but still seemed like the same person they were 30 years ago. For the most part, they were fairly successful and held positions of responsibility - kind of surprising. Everyone was friendly.

The band wore giant afro wigs, and played music from 1976, like "She's a Brick House" and "Play that Funky Music". The dance floor was packed.

I came in second in voting for "Most Eligible Bachelor". There were three of us.

Our next 30 year reunion is in 2036.

And so it goes ... we have been Israeli dancing in Gainesville again for a year and a half.
