A persistent rain or threat thereof, kept everyone but yours truly, the cook and his partner in crime, Steve Hubbins, husband of Pat's best girlfriend, Jackie from Texas, crowded inside. (do you follow that ? I think I need a diagram.) Our original plans included primary seating outside at three outside tables but Mother Nature changed those plans fast! Everyone made the best of it and I didn't hear any complaints about the crowding - actually, the noise level was so high, I couldn't hear much of anything. I wonder if that was indicative of the fact that many of us are not hearing as clearly as in years go by.
We had two special guests at the party and it was hard to believe they were in their 80's. They definitely get around easier than Pat and I. The Carmody sisters (Jeanne on the left and Mary in the middle) who taught business classes at SHS are pictured here with Pat.
Below, Becky Posnak (now Woodhull), Carol Cooley (now Bloemer), and Connie Case (now Ohare) shared memories from Jefferson Jr. High. There were a couple other cameras at the party and hopefully, their owners will share more pictures. I will post all of my shots along with others received, on the website with a link posted here. So, here they are, the girls of SHS class of 64. I still don't know who they are but Pat promises a list to post later. So for now, get out the Capitoline and see how many you can recognize. Check back in a few days and you can see who you got right. "no clue?" That's how I felt as they walked in. If you click on the picture, it will bring up a larger view.

The signs are down, and the guests gone home but the memories of the past will last long into the future - along with the leftover hamburgers and hot dogs!
NOTE: be sure to click on the comments section below. There is already one comment - thanks Connie and I am sure there will be more. Hint Hint. I have several e-mail comments that I will add also. Guys, when Connie says the girls of 64 are still hot, she is not exaggerating. Next time, I plan to wear a shirt with the notation. "Hug your photographer, he can make you look good!"
In the comments below, Connie so graciously noted that I tried to fit in by dressing appropriately. I wore my best dirty apron - actually, it is my ONLY apron and is probably due for the yearly washing. I think I missed last year. Actually, I can't remember ever washing it. I'm trying to draw your attention to the apron and away from the grandma wig. Wow, those things are hot and itchy. Anyway, here is the picture as promised. - I didn't say I would make it big. I'm big enough without a wide screen picture.
