Shiver me timbers! Steve Craig, that son of a biscuit eater - is he talking about buried treasure chests? Where did that landlubber put his buried chest? eeeerr
As part of the Holmes school gang, I had to jump in....Alice and Loukie Insinger were two of my best friends....yes, they were twins from Holland, and lived in the apartments at the corner of West and Holmes. Can't wait to see all of you...it's about time Skins got her stuff in!!! Remember Anthony and Rusty and the guys being hot rods in the halls? Mr. Gardiner?
To repeat what has already been said, what a perfect weekend - the committee even worked their magic on the weather. Such fun catching up with people and even talking to people I never spoke to while I was in High School! A true sign of perfection is when you leave wishing there was more, which I did. Thank you Lauren, Josie, Jenny, Chris, Ed, John, Tim and Jamila, Todd and Martha, and Steve and Nancy – you are the BEST.
A wee bit O' verse to jog our collective memory....
I'm trying hard to remember.
Was it Spring or in November?
When late at night, without detection,
A pool was built in the Intersection.
Where once we walked from class to class,
There was a pond, with trout and bass.
So now my classmates, I must ask,
Who performed this daring task?
Steve...alive and well in Va Beach...yep, spent my whole life cruising the seven seas....aboard the big ass haze grey kind of boats...with poor chow and men only....rang more salt water out of my socks than most people have sailed over....minimal fun...but lots of sea stories to tell. To show for it, I now have lots of tattoos and a potty mouth worse than Tinker's....just kidding about the tattoo part. Can't speak a sentence without an f bomb.....f'ing embarrassing. Your music recollection of the Wicked Picket is sound....I'm proud of you. Bring on the Schaefer beer. Where's Mitch Ryder and Detroit Wheels when we need him.....Bend Over Let Me See You Shake a Tail Feather. Bring your frisbee....we're going to flight test that mother.
If we haven't heard from you, now is the time to start blogging.
Mark, Patti, Jenny:What am I being accused of? I can't remember what I did yesterday, let alone 40 years ago.Looking forward to 8/14.
Tink, stop making those "snake" references about Poccia. You're going to scare him off again!!!!!
