1. What memories do you have of your school years at any stage of your education?
2. Did you keep in touch with your friends who were there with you in your formative years, or perhaps you lost touch as I did and are finding them again? Tell us about some of your school friends.
Part of my school memories have to do with one particular person. She was my best friend all through middle school and high school and for years after we graduated, we remained in touch despite our different college schedules. Jenny would come and go throughout my "after school" life, but as soon as we got together, we would always pick up where we left off as if I had just seen her yesterday. After we both married and had kids, we gradually lost touch. It had been several years since I had seen or spoke to Jenny. Until recently, we became reacquainted through the infamous Facebook. We tried to get together once or twice, but due to our busy schedules and the snowy winter weather we've been having, we've had to postpone, plus Jenny lives a good hour or so from me, so it isn't easy to just meet up spur of the moment for a cup of coffee.

I have many fond memories with Jenny, like the numerous college parties, going to the movies, Peter Gabriel, John Cougar, Bon Jovi concert, Mark W., Dawn W., living in Miami, the Keys, Apples of Gold, the Subaru, the Gremlin, the nose snicker....laughing. Seems we were always going to a party...and laughing. Come to think of it, Jenny always knew where the parties were. She was a fun friend, indeeed! And a genuine friend too!
I am happy that were able to reconnect through Facebook. Even though we live miles apart, we can jump on the computer anytime to catch up in an instant. It is my hope that we never lose touch again. Thanks for the memories, Jen!
