My 40-Years-Later Side-By-Side Photos
It's my 40th High School Reunion today! I won't be able to go ... I went to High School in New York and now live in Texas, and my son is home for a short break, and, and, and ... However, we've had a spontaneous reunion of sorts on Facebook! I normally keep rather strict limits on my Facebook time, but have indulged these last two weeks, and it's been a real treat. Sharing before-and-after photos, funny memories, regrets, inspirations, sadly learning who we have lost, etc. The impromptu online reunion has been a fun surprise. I've learned a lot and I wish I had had the opportunity to get to know a lot more people a lot better!
A Memory I shared ...
about when I shockingly realized in High School that
I would be 40 when the year 2000 would hit!
My High School was named after a former bishop of Rochester, N.Y., Bishop James E. Kearney. He was still alive while we were students and at least a few times, came to say mass for us on his birthday. After mass, he would announce that we would have the following day off from school as a holiday! He died my senior year and the principal gave us a day off in honor of this good bishop.
