Hubby's 40th High School Class Reunion

Last weekend Hubby and I went to his 40th High school class reunion. It was in Satellite Beach Florida.  I don't think there is any other reunion like it.

Friday night was a social gathering with a disc jockey and appetizers. It was so much fun watching them dance. 

Saturday morning was a paddle out and memorial which I had never seen before. It was a beautiful ceremony.


After the memorial we had our own time. At four was the 'reunion" There was a meal of hot dogs and hamburgers and everyone again socialized. It went way over the expected end time.

If I don't know people I wouldn't call myself a social butterfly. It was my Hubby's classmates and unlike him I don't just go up to someone and start talking so I stayed at the table most of the time. 

Alone.

But that is okay.  It was my Hubby's time. I thought it was ironic that through the months before he was a little anxious because he kept saying he probably wouldn't know anyone.  Obviously he did. 

Everyone had a good time. I met some good people. I can now put a face to a name. Yahoo!

Did I mention it was hot? I have to admit Florida's heat and humidity wasn't as bad as Louisiana's. The beach breeze was a life saver.

One of my Hubby's former classmates said your goal for a reunion is to meet at least one person. She was right.

Until next time...

  2. I am also one who tends to sit back and watch and that's okay with me. However, my husband is like that too, so we're not social butterflies. I'm glad you had a good time and thank goodness for ocean breezes.

    1. Yes, I was grateful for the ocean breeze. My Hubby is more outspoken and can blend in any situation.

      Thanks for stopping by!
