Gosh,

What a nice mini congregation going on here...just basking in the warm '72 fuzzies.

Don't you just miss that simpler time of our life?

Actually Ed,
I am enjoying a simpler time of life right now.  Downsizing the real estate, kids have flown the nest, new job that isn't stressful.  Life is good!
Simple is good! 
I think the reason I love visiting with my '72 friends, is that they pulled me through those tough teenage years!!!  The friendships were/are the best!  Especially the ones that have lasted so many years.  We all speak a common language and have the capability to lift each other up!  Basking in the warm '72 fuzzies is great!

Diana,

I like your style... Indeed, there's something to be said for the elegance of simplicity.  And spells of peaceful tranquility isn't so bad either.  I can imagine just how serene it must be up your way in big sky country.  That can't help but bolster one's sense of wellbeing too.  Sure beats the 4 hr round-trip I crawl on the 91 Fwy!  Cindy reminds me that we gotta get outta here.  Perhaps within a half decade we might relocate to the hill country of Texas...who knows.

Lady D, hope your Easter weekend is filled with joy & levity,

Diane, 

Welcome!  You are absolutely right about 72 friends.  We were all very
lucky to have each other as friends back then, It is just a good feeling to be
able to come back after all these years and really enjoy one another.  Ever since
I have been on the alumni sight, I have come back and been able to get the enjoyment of talking with all the great people we had in our class.  I am glad to
see you back!  Smiley

Ed, you and Cindy have got to get away some day and see my neck o' the woods!
I can't believe you have a 4 hr commute!!! Yikes!

Cathy, it's great reconnecting with you and our small group of 72 gang that hangs out on the website.  I have enjoyed getting to know our classmates as adults, not just as the kids we remembered back then.

Thanks for the Easter well wishes!  All of you have the same.  TGIF and I'm going home!

Hello Cherished Friends and Classmates!
I am still alive and well, but a bit tired of digging out of the snow drifts this winter! Yikes!  Two years in a row, more snow than I would hope for!
I just spent the week before Christmas visiting my mom in Placentia.  I will probably be doing it more often this year as the folks are requiring a bit more assistance these days...This trip afforded me little time to contact alumni, but would love to find out if and when there are any get-togethers in the OC and will plan some future visits around them in 2009.
Now that the big election is over with, I might have some time to spend perusing the message board a bit more.  My job as county elections clerk was crazy last year!

Hi Diana and classmates

Glad things have settled down for you Diana as they will be getting rather hectic for Cathy and I as the end of the month nears. I'm starting a new job Feb 1, going back to work for my Air Force as a civilian and we'll be moving to Panama City, Florida. I know Cathy and her daughter Mallory are excited about the move, going to a warmer climate and living near the Gulf and beaches. We've been looking at rental houses there via the internet, and all of our top picks are within walking distance of the beach.

We were back in Placentia in June for Cathy's son Billy graduation from EDHS. I've essentially been "gone" since our own graduation, and always amazed at the changes every time I go back. Seems I'm always saying, "remember when such-in-such was there!"

We'll make a trip back sometime this year, just not sure if it will be during the summer, or the Christmas holidays. Just have to wait and see.

Allen,
Congrats on the new job! and I envy the fact that you will be living near a beach!  Right now I would love some sand between my toes and sun on my face...
I wish the best for you and Cathy in your new endeavors and safe travels. Take care and have a wonderful 2009!

While we haven't had much snow, we've had winter temperatures since early Nov. I know Cathy's had enough, and quite frankly, so have I! I'm ready for warm weather, and sand between my toes LOL

I'll lay odds that those little pesky hurricanes didn't enter either of their minds when thinking about being in the warmer climate again.  LOL

Actually they did. But regardless of where you live there's always some weather issue to deal with, like earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, fire, etc.

Al:

Good luck to you guys.  I'm so happy for you.  Seems like this winter has been a pretty cold one again.  I'm starting to think that my daughter and son-in-law have something to do with it.  Every time they get piglets to raise, the winter is terribly cold.  This is the second time it's happened.  They had them winter before last and again this winter, and they've both been awful.  They get stuff from the dairy to feed them along with rolled corn and standing out there in the freezing cold, prying those cartons open is awful!  They are the ones that have to deal with it most of the time, but when they're out of town, it's me.  Sure do enjoy those home grown pork chops though!

Oooohhhh...Bonnie!  If I raised animals that we eat, I would definitely be a vegetarian.
