50TH High School Reunion

Today I went to my 50th high school class reunion. I graduated from Our Lady of Mercy High School in Detroit in 1960. Out of the class of 192, 96 showed up for the reunion. It was fun to see everyone. Some people you could recognize when they walked in the door. Others were a surprise when you saw their name tag. And still others, when you saw their name tag, you didn't even remember that they were in your class. For some people, high school was a pinnacle for them. It was the best time of their lives. That wasn't really the case for me. High school was fun, certainly more fun than grade school. (We didn't have middle school or junior high back then.) But for me college was more fun and even more fun was raising a family. Then after I went back to school and became an engineer, working was the best. Now that I am retired and I am active in the Lion's Club, Master Gardener Society, and the Quilt guild, life couldn't get much better.

You look great, Mom! My students will say stuff about high school being the best time of their lives and I keep telling them that it just gets better.
