Sweet Memories Are Made of This ...

In the year 2000, the Classes of 1956, 1957 and 1958 joined ranks for a reunion the likes of which few have ever attended.  My Class was 1955 ... we should have been celebrating our 45th reunion, but it was not to be.  

Fortunately my younger sister, Sharon Lee Smith Spies, Class of 1958, invited me to join her at the 3 - Class Reunion.  Naturally the theme was the 50's and the decor included vintage red and white Thunderbirds, a huge Harley ...

... and even a special classmate ... Ray Ragsdale (Stevens!) who joined us both nights ...

 

...and he turned over 300 seniors (because that's what we are!) into bright-eyed teenagers when he called his original band, The Barons, up on the stage.  They jammed for us ... and we were young again!!!

Old beau Terry Coleman, still at the drums ... 

 

... and another old beau Edgar Campbell watching with delight at the edge of the stage!! 

 Ray mentioned how "offensive" some of the words to the songs of our day were back then - and told the story of "Mr. Mac", our Principal, looking to admonish Ray for performing that terribly risqué song, "I Got A Woman, Way Over Town ... she's good to me!" Man, were our days virginic or what?!!!

Yep, sweet memories ARE made of this!
