Comments:

We got married the same year as we graduated, and we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year along with our 50th reunion. We bought a little three bedroom, one bathroom house in High Meadow in 1966 as a starter home, and we are still here, although the house has grown as our family has expanded.
By putting on additions, we now have five bedrooms and four baths. We have a 32 year old foster son Donald with us, and my daughter, her husband and their two boys are living here. We're like a modified Brady Bunch I guess. We have been in this house for 47 years!
I never was one for change!

School Story:

I remember so well all the school sporting events, the parades, twirling batons, capes and flags. And of course, remembering Mr. Charles the band director.
I remember sitting with Ozen in the stands at a basketball game in January of 1963, talking about who I would probably end up marrying....and seeing my husband for the first time in the gym in the stands across from us.
I remember Miss Kitlaus, the young chemistry teacher whose experiments had a way of not really working.
And I remember the proms and the school trips, the Junior Variety Show, and learning to play chess with Art and Dan in my living room.
So many people hate the memories of their time in High School, but I count them as a time for learning, laughing, growing, and having a great time.

Hey, friend! Have a great birthday. Wish we could still drive down to Florida so we could stop to see you. Unfortunately, we are both working and can't take the time any more. Do you think you'll be up our way for the reunion? If so, maybe we can get together before or after the reunion night. Let us know. Meanwhile, have a good celebration today.

Linda: Think of you often. So glad you were not injured in the recent eruption, but I am sure that you have been greatly affected. Enjoy your birthday and know that God will help you get through this....but I know that you know He will. Best wishes. Sandy

Happy belated birthday, Jim. I was in the old hometown on Wednesday of last week, and things have changed a little. The house I grew up in was all boarded up, but yours was still going strong. It doesn't seem like it's been hat long......most days, anyway! I hope you had a great birthday, and many, many more.

Happy Birthday, my good old friend........so many years have gone by, I can hardly believe it! I have so many memories of our growing up together. When you drive through Marcus Hook now, our houses are still standing! I'll take a picture next time I am there and send it to you. Any way, hope you have a wonderful birthday. Sandy

The second grade at Indian Lane School visited Media for a Class Trip this Fall. My grandson Craig is all the way on the left side of this picture.
