First day of November 2010

Well, I missed blogging totally in September, October, and now I am catching up (I hope).  In September I went to my high school reunion.  I have to admit that I was disappointed the events were great, but everyone started leaving by 9:45-10:00 like old people.  I will admit that we are on the down hill slide as this was our 55th reunion but my goodness find a chair and visit until you fall asleep and then go to your room and go to bed.  There wasn't any music, so no one could complain that the music was to loud on  Saturday night, but after the group picture it seems that everyone thought that it was signal to go home.  I drove to the reunion and I made a journey of over 400 miles to see everyone and I didn't have time to visit with everyone.  However, I have to say that we all or almost all of us looked great even though we are a little long in the tooth.  All in all I had a great time.  I even sold some of my jewelry.  That thrilled me very much, as I had taken it to just show everyone what I was doing.  In October I had a very good month, it seems that last year I made contact with a girl friend from the 2nd grade and 3rd grade in Luxora, Arkansas.We hadn't seen each other in 55 years but she remembered me.  We have been planning to meet all year but due to the health of family members on both sides, we couldnt get it done until the last week in October, and we met in Eastland, Texas and had such fun laughing and talking about when we use to play everyday down at the levee.  So carefree and fun.  We took dancing together and did almost everything together for those 2 years and for all the years in between after the war I dreamed and hoped I would get to see Clementine again.  I am so happy we got together again.  It was like we had never been apart.  Nothing seemed changed we could talk about everything even politics and not get excited because we had opposing views.  We just laughed and decided that all need to go and start over with a new congress on both sides of the isle.  Well fall weather is here on us this morning here in the big O it was cool and only warmed up to 70, going to be cooler tomorrow.  I am adding new jewelry all along besure and check it out.
