Today is the big event- The Caddo Alumni Banquet. I was talking to my friend yesterday and realized we have been out of school for forty years. Forty years! Sometimes that seems like an eternity. At other times it seems like yesterday.
I went through my photos and found a few choice moments from my high school years. I didn’t take a lot of photos. I’m sorry about that now. And I didn’t buy my senior yearbook. I was married, pregnant, and in college and couldn’t afford it. I suppose I should borrow someone’s and scan some photos! (In case you’re new here, I got married in my junior year, graduated in December of my senior year, started college, and returned to school in May to participate in the graduation ceremony.)
That’s me with my little cousin on the hood of someone’s car. It was after church in the spring of my freshman year. I think it may have been Easter. Check out those shoes!
Why I let someone take my picture in Biology class is beyond my recollection now. It was January of my sophomore year and I may have had the camera with me to photograph the big snow storm. I have those photos somewhere!
During my junior year I was very active in FHA and was even sub-district president. We dressed up a lot in FHA and hats were very popular.
My senior picture is a little damaged, but when I tried to correct it I ended up with a strange looking face. So you’ll just have to ignore the creases. I still have some of my “proofs”, in their original envelope, but they are very faded. One is in better shape than the others, but has a starburst effect. Oh well, what can you expect after forty years?
