My High School Reunion

I go home every 5 years. I love my hometown, i have family there and I love to see my friends. Next year is a big reunion.

Its amazing what the difference in living in various areas does to your appearance. I am shocked at the condition of my classmates. We have lost close to 100 people. We graduated over 400+ my senior year.

It looks like most have given up. Their hair is gray. they have put on weight. They just seem older to me. Women where I live would never let themselves go.

we shall see.

I feel the same when I look at my old school mates

Some have aged gracefully, others were rode hard and put away wet. Some I wouldn’t recognize and a few never changed.

Time can be cruel…and then some of them were just not as fortunate.

I wouldn’t compare myself…just be grateful you are still around to attend.

Hope you fit into your dress! 😌

@LunarOrbit we have some classmates that are in really bad shape. one was tethered to the wall on an oxygen machine. they lived a hard life and now it is coming to roost. no, i love my classmates and wish them well. i am down in my weight. i can fit into my clothes with room.

I have to admit - I'm not a big reunion kind of guy. I've only been to one (my fifteenth like 20 years ago) and I hated it. Haven't been back to one since. I do believe that your environment can have an affect on your life and body though.

@akindheart would be interesting to see how others from your class who have relocated are doing!

@Ambroseguy80 for the most part they stayed close to home. i was shocked how many died right out of high school. I have gone to every reunion we have had and some deaths have been really sad.

@akindheart that's sad for sure!
