Our first night took us to the home of a classmate for cocktails and dinner, just like it was five years ago when we went for the 45th. It was a lovely party and the food was delicious...My "beau" was the best-looking one there.
The next morning, we all met up at JBS for coffee and bagels, then loaded on a bus for a trip to Woodsvalley Farm in Steelville, where classmates John and Judy Woods served a wonderful lunch and entertained us with John's elaborate miniature train collection and five miles of track, complete with beautiful scenery, trestles, tunnels, railroad crossing poles and lights, miniature water towers, train museums and everything else train that you can think of! Look at this - you won't believe it! We had fascinating a day.
Sunday morning took us to the Headmaster's house for a meet-and-greet, then over to the school for brunch. Afterward, we toured the school and reminisced about old times. Terr found his picture (and those of his siblings) in the giant wall frames of class pictures and his name on the wall plaque, noting his senior year as Speaker of the Assembly.
It was really nice to get to know Terr's (or Terry's, as they call him) classmates. They made me feel welcomed and part of the group. Congratulations, T, on your 50th! I was really proud of you...
If you are interested in more pictures, you can see them at this link, where I have created a website for Terr's classmates to visit.
May your train keep moving on! -Merry
