Sunday Stealing

I have really missed doing Memes and I am a nostalgic person so this is perfect for getting back into the swing of addition I got to have dinner this week with a high school class mate that I had not seen since 1986 at the end of our junior year.

Okay, here is a picture of the classmate I met with this week and had dinner with. We were not close in high school, but we have become good friends over the past two to three years. His name is Rick Kennedy and I don't know if I was not nice to him in school, but I sure never gave him the time of day. Now...I wish I would have...he is a great guy and we have a lot in common and can talk for hours. Poor hubby did not get many words in at dinner that night...


  1. Hope all is well with you :) Have a great day!

  2. That's really neat that you had dinner w/ someone from school. Isn't it amazing how we all change thru the years... :-) Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading...

  3. Gosh it sounds like it was a good time for you and for him!

    Honestly, I'm not certain where any of my old classmates are.....hmmmm.....

  4. Thanks for the fun read! I've lost touch with my classmates since I've moved quite a few times since high school. Well there is one woman who I've been friends with since elementary school and we still e-mail each other. Oh yeah....I'm glad to see that you survived your move with your mental capacities still intact! I hate moving and hope to never do it again. ;)
