Summer of 2017

12 Jul

It’s been so long since I’ve posted.  Although I’ve been so busy living and doing that I haven’t taken the time to write, I have composed posts in my mind.  Now, while I’m at a resting spot–in the midst of my summer travels–I want to put these thoughts on paper–virtually.

This summer I’ve been with people that I haven’t seen for years.   It’s wonderful getting reacquainted, hearing about their lives, and reminiscing on mine.  I’ve recounted how in December of 2013 I went to Florida for the winter and ended up staying until June and that I now live in Florida and do my traveling “home” in the summers.

This summer, in addition to the Cousin Reunion in Nebraska (the first was in 2014) I attended my 50th class reunion there.  Wow! 50 Years!!!  In a way it doesn’t seem possible, though in another way it seems a lifetime ago.  It was the first class reunion I’ve attended.  I’ve only seen a handful of the 96 graduates through the years, so it took me awhile to place names with faces.  It brings a smile to my face, remembering.  It was special to see in those faces, some so changed, the glimpses of the teens they were.  I hope to keep in contact with many of my classmates and am looking forward to the next reunion in 5 years.

Besides the reunion highlights, I’ve traveled quite a bit more this summer than usual.   My mind is so filled with all the memories, that it will take me awhile to sort them out.  With the chronological story of my pics and my daily (most days) recording of events and travels, I hope to sort it all out while I’m regrouping/refreshing in Jefferson City, Mo.  I’ve decided to add a new “Travel” category to my blog and hope to post some entries in the coming weeks.
