Jane and Pete, thanks for a great night! Your home is beautiful and we had a blast! I never imagined that planning a reunion might actually be more fun than the reunion itself....

Kind of a PITA living here in Texas. I sure would like to see ya'll again, it's been a long time. My family and I are moving to Germany in June, but I'll do my best to return for the reunion. Kim Emerling's making plans to come over for the Oktoberfest, so mayhaps a few others of yins can make it over also, eh? Kind of like a pre-reunion reunion. It's nice to have a website where this is all coordinated. I look forward to seeing all ya'll again.

It's great to see you on the site, I bet you haven't changed a bit! Can't believe your moving off to Germany- you'll have to fill us in on your details. Oktoberfest sounds like a fun time! wouldnt it be great if some mates could join to see you at the reunion if you can make it!

Hey Guys!

Any chance that a reunion "meeting" can be held on a weekend? Then maybe those of us from out of town could attend the "meeting"?

Would love to see you all!

I was told that she passed away in 2007 of breast cancer.
There are 2 areas of in memory- one is the photo show and the other is on the top tabs and it is named 'In Memory'.
In that area you can click on the persons name and if I have information about the person I will add it there.

Thanks for hosting the reunion meeting tonight! It was great to get together, once again, with the classmates of 1979!

Even though my husband didn't do anything, he was grateful for the full fridge of beer! Greg was a trooper, and Terri is definitely our adopted classmate! Thanks again! We look forward to the next meeting!

Sue, your website is outstanding....Veronica, we can't wait to review the "minutes"....

Beth Allen (Byrd)

Ok, in defense of our wine steward, Pete, I must say I didn't do anything at the meeting last night either! I learned a lot though:

1. Pete taught me how to create a "forced breathing" of my wine by tossing the wine (literally) back and forth between two glasses. Ideally, the wine ends up IN the wine glass. Perfect solution for the impatient wine enthusiast!

2. Some husbands cook? That was totally news to me. Lucky you, Karen!

3. The best way to make guests feel comfortable in your home is to smash a wine glass on the floor early in the evening. This creates an "anything goes" atmosphere for your guests and allows everyone to let down their guard. Thanks for that one, Liz! (Sorry about the hole in your ceiling!) J/K

Thanks to Liz for hosting us in her beautiful home. These meetings are proving to be WAY too much fun. I think we're looking into Saturday May 9th at the Wallingford winery for the next one. YAY!

Sue Oertel (Castelli)

Well .... I think Beth summed that up perfectly! and add to that the need for a loud voice (thank you Joe:)) to occasionally holler "OK .... back to the meeting"
and actually we accomplished a bit- please check out the Reunion Details link for updated info.

also, i wish there was a way to spell check on this forum but i dont see in the words of Dave Barkasy "we went to sheehan , what do you expect"
and, if you find that you entered something you really did not want out there, let me know and i can edit it for you.

Hey reunion committee members-- (and Peter and Greg)
Linn's idea to have the May meeting at Gouveia's Winery
was a good one-but I called them today and they are only open until 8pm Monday thur Saturday and 6pm on Sundays?
We begin our meetings at 7pm? Any thoughts?
and yes, we are getting very, very comfortable around one another again after 30 years- so the meetings are now crazy. Joe----control? Maybe a gravel at the next meeting? Anyone want to volunteer for the May meeting? We had agreed on Saturday, May 9?

Thank you for sending a letter to my parent's house to find me! I am now living in South Carolina and look forward to getting together with everyone in November for the reunion.
Moving to the South has also been a coming home for me also. I work for a wonderful doctor and have a wonderful staff. I have job security that I never thought I would ever have. I am truly blessed!
I'm getting married October 2, 2009 so I will be attending with my new husband! Life can begin again! Yeah for second chances!
