Reunion and Potato Blossom Festival

So I went back to upper Maine for a high school class reunion, and had a great time. So nice to connect with people after all these years. It was held at the Aroostook Valley Country Club, where I used to work 40 years ago. It's on the border, and actually the clubhouse is on Canadian soil.

What a trip down Memory Lane. So nice that people have mellowed, and all were pleasant and friendly- unlike the experience of many in high school. Maybe they were nice because they now knew I could write about them if they weren't!

P.S.- If you want to read a great book about a class reunion, see Reunion by David Daniel. It's awesome! 

Many thanks to Vickie Levesque for putting in a ton of hard work to make a good time for everyone else.

I was in a play (The Star Spangled Girl, by Neil Simon) with Sue and Kirk over 40 years ago, and we still laugh about it now.

Some people just age better than others...

Me with some lovely classmates

Friends forever!

Just about everyone was smiling and happy. 

With Rhonda, who's been a big supporter of my writing career.

I also put up a booth and sold books at the Maine Potato Blossom Festival the next day. We got the parade and some sales in before the rain hit!

And more classmate friends stopped by to share in the fun.
