Holy crap! What a weekend!! My reunion was a blast! Friday night we had dinner and live music. I arrived a bit early to do last minute set up and then night flew by. Friends I haven't seen in 30 years. Some I've seen here and there along the way of life, but damn if it wasn't good to see everyone.
After the formal part of the evening we went back to a girlfriends house and had a bon fire in her back yard. Before I knew it was after 3 and I couldn't believe I was still awake and ready to go. We sat around the fire snacking, having a bit to drink telling stories and laughing our asses off. It was as though we were back in the day only this time we didn't have to hide.
We had to call it a night as there was another big day on Saturday. By about 10 am it was raining cats and dogs. I held off packing the car so not to get drenched. One shower before I got there was enough. It did let up and we headed to the park balloons in tow to hang with the signs so folks could find us. The rain stopped long enough for us to get to the shelter and unload the car. It came down for a bit again but the sun did break through and the day turned out to be fabulous!!
After the park we headed out to a local carnival. The beer tent was the goal but we only last about 20-30 minutes. It was a mob scene and we couldn't find anyone even if we wanted. There was a group of about 7 and if it wasn't for the guys we'd have never even hooked up. Good thing they were 6 foot or so :) We walked across the street to the bar and continued are celebrating. It was well after midnight by the time I got home. Can you say tired? Holy shit! Today I looked in the mirror once and vowed not to do it again. My sides were sore from laughing. The whites of my eyes were red. The veins were like blood. Not a good sign. The bags? Well the out of towners could have used them to pack their belongings for the trip back to their home. It was not pretty. Other then being a bit tired I was fine. I just don't think I will be pulling a week like this past one anytime soon. It was a freakin blast tho.
A few good friends came in from out of town and it was so good to catch up. Can I say, once a crush always a crush? Too funny.... Of course gone now and nothing will transpire but it was fun to flirt for a bit. I'll let you figure out who.... or which... I have a few more pictures up on facebook.. feel free to stop by. You'll see the smiles, the silliness, and yes, the immaturity! Ahhhhh it's good to let your hair down tho.
It's been one helluva weekend and I have to work in the am so it's going to be an early night. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
