What a bunch!  It was a really nice turn out for our 40 year class reunion!  Way to go kids!  The thing I found most endearing was that we had difficulty recognizing each other after so many years!  That was the fun part...... seeing the expression on faces as they finally realized who the person was they were talking to!  The years keep ticking away!   All of us have gone in so many different directions from dentists, careers in the navy, authors of published books, factory workers, etc. and so many are now retired from their careers.  One thing we'll always have in common though is that we graduated from Chetek High School in Chetek, WI 1972!   Love and Peace my friends!   And prayers that we all make it to the next one!!

  1. Cathy, by the look of everyone's face I would say it was a most enjoyable time. How fun to reconnect with former classmates and share stories about "the good old days" Have a lovely day, it is chilly here in southern Maine! Blessings, Julie.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. I was wondering how it went. Were your old classmates shocked that you became a hooker?? Lol

  3. What a great looking bunch of older high school kids. Everyone look so good and in shape. It looks like you had a blast catching up with ech others after so many years. So glad that you had fun.

  4. Cathy,
    What a great picture! I'm glad you had such a good time. Hugs,Lori

  5. Now, that's a happy looking bunch! I love reunions ~ those that don't go miss a lot! It's interesting how different we are as we get older ~ no one cares who wore the cute clothes or had the best car or cutest boyfriend ~ we're all just trying to live happy lives and really learn to appreciate those old friends even more!

  6. You were the prettiest girl at the party! I love your hair! :)

  7. Very sweet and what a good time.
