Goldenrod Reunion


Sign at Rock Creek Park in Dawsonville, GA with Goldenrod.
 It's that time of the year. The children have returned to school. Football season is in full swing and the boys of summer are wrapping it up.

October is upon us. Sweater weather. Crystal clear days. Fall winds that rattle the dried leaves from trees not quite ready to say goodbye.

The hay fields are mown and brown. The kudzu blooms, great purple clusters that look like wisteria and smell like grapes.

The temperature highs have plunged from the 90's to the 70's, the lows from the 60's to 49.

It's a fitting time for a reunion. Classmates meet again. It's been thirty-five years. Villa Rica Class of 1975. Here's to you.

It took a minute for me to figure out that fly balls have to do with baseball, not flies!

Enjoy your class reunion. It's my 25th this year, although I won't be attending. Too expensive! And I just recently saw quite a few people from high school.

Well that picture made me sneeze! I do not do high school reunions, I graduated leave me alone :)

Hope you have a safe, fun-filled trip.

Never do reunions myself.

Kobico, I loved that sign and had to take a picture. I went to my nephew's soccer game last weekend and there, at the verge, was that sign. :)

Luckily, our reunion is only dinner the one night for $30. I scraped it up and am going. I'm past 50 now so I no longer worry about what people think of me. Well, not as much anyway. :)

Jules, sorry to make you sneeze. I'm actually looking forward to seeing everyone, it'll be great character research.

Yvonne, Renae and Mary, thank you!

Everyone have a wonderful fall weekend!

I can't imagine going to a high school reunion. Now, I'd go see the teachers! Otherwise, count me out.

I do hope you enjoy yours, though. You don't look past 50....impressive.

And I'm sooooo loving the cooler weather. I unpacked and washed some of the cool weather clothes. Hopefully, I'll need a jacket or a sweater!!! Woohoo, fall is finally here!

This may post more than once; blogger is giving me a hard time. Maybe because I've been away for a while....?

Several of my teachers are suspected of being aliens. I won't be going, even to do character research. Too risky.

Also, meds don't mix well with drinks.
