Along For The Ride To Redmond


My sister and I spent the weekend with my mother, and her memories, at her 59th high school reunion. 

We traveled in the modern version of a covered wagon (Buick La Sabre) - from the land of green grass and Starbucks, to Redmond, OR, the land of sunshine, cowboys and, well Starbucks is there too.

To see my mom with her high school buddies is quite an experience.   The best part is hearing the stories.  To see people who are struggling with bodies not working the way they would like, and minds behaving the same way, to see that sparkle in their eyes when they talk of runaway rafts, rodeos, and late nights just being young and outrageous.  It's fantastic.

Next year will be the big 60th reunion.  (My sister is already planning the party).  I can't wait to hear more stories.  I'll be sure to bring my sunscreen... and cowboy hat.

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
