- After 40 years we still had nearly 50 class members show up. That's a big number.
- Some traveled a great distance. Georgia, Arizona, Washington and California for example.
- Everyone, and I mean everyone, seemed happy. No complaints. No arguments. No discouraging words.
- I didn't observe any of those little cliques pop up. You know, where a few people get together in a group and remain aloof from the rest. But then, I don't remember much of that back when we were in school either.
- Everyone laughed at my jokes. Well, almost everyone.
We dressed like...
and Mary Tyler Moore
We drove cars like...
Yes. There actually was a car called a Gremlin. (Girl in jumpsuit was optional).
We listened to...
and Simon and Garfunkel
And I couldn't leave out this one...
Sanford and Son
and Looney Tunes
There were also earth shoes, bell bottom pants and leisure suits. Bicycles with banana seats, Hai Karate after shave and Twister. And on a personal note - there was the cornflake bowl, creature features and a '63 Chevy. Good times. Good times.
A friend and classmate perhaps said it best, "Everyone was so nice. And kind. And seemed genuinely interested in each other." Truer words were never spoken. So here's to us! Now say it along with me We're the best as you can see! We're the class of 73! We're the best as you can see! We're the class of 73! Has a nice ring to it don't you think?
