Although we didn't have as many attendees for the 55th that we had for the 50th, I think that everyone still had a good time. I often think about the patterns of our lives. For instance, we used to see our classmates almost daily. Now, at most is it five or ten years (at least for those of us who travel a ways to come). At our age, though, five years goes by in a blink.
Again we had a moment of remembrance for our classmates who are no longer with us. The list which seemed so long five years ago is even longer now. Plans are being made for our next gathering, in two or three years. "God willing, and the creeks don't rise", I hope to see you all then.

Considering that we left the Elks before 11, hanging on till 2:30 showed that we were having a great discussion. At our next reunion, I invite any and all to join us in our after hours '61 "Breakfast".
