I AM old!

At family dinner, which turned out to be son, DIL and their various kids, apparently vacations came up.  It appears that we are going to Alaska for another train convention.  I guess they are as good a reason as any to spend unfathomable amounts of money to visit some area for a week.

Anyway, I was saying that we better be home by some date in September because this will be my 50th high school reunion.  I have missed all these reunions save one because we have been gone on vacation.  It is amazing we have been available for you-know-who's reunions however!!

Anyway, DIL said Son has one also this year.  Then she said it would be his 20th.  After the blood came  back into my head, I was able to think a little more clearly.  I was already feeling ancient because it was my 50th, but when your baby will have his 20th, that's a different story.

I know what you mean. It's like when your kid turns 30, or you notice gray hair on them. That just can't be, they're just KIDS!

Tell me about your on/off button on your machine. Is it different than the power switch? I've heard of a knee control and hope I can get a new machine one day that has something better than this foot pedal.

The way to make it to your 50th reunion, is to get involved in some small way--then you HAVE to be there :-)

I loved mine--I got involved in mailing everyone and asking for a recent picture. That way, I recognized all the "old" people and was not embarrassed by having to say, "Now who are you?" It was a wonderful night for all of us!!! You MUST attend!!!
