20th HS reunion

Well, this summer marked the 20th year we have been out of High School. Better known as your 20th High School Reunion. I did not go to mine. Too big. I only went there 2 years. And I keep in touch with those who I want to keep in touch with...... albeit very poorly. I need to do much better at that!  I did get together with a few of my former elementry school chums from Evangelical Christian Academy. That was fun. I hope to do that more often. There is something special about that class.
We did go to Dave's HS reunion though. It was a fun time and it coresponded with the Crowley County Days festivities. So, that was a fun time and we also got to stay with friends there and the kids had a blast as did us grown ups. That is a must do more often! We got to play with dogs, kitties, see more chickens and goats and shop at the farm market and eat good sweet melon from the best melon growing area on earth! Rocky Ford. We drove out to Cheraw where Dave's mom grew up and through Sugar City where my Gramps spent some of his childhood. We told the kids stories we had heard. It was  good time! Here are a few photos from the trip.

Keep on the Sunny Side

The Whites - Keep on the Sunny Side
(Depression Era song)

There's a dark & a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

[cho:] Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

The storm and its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear;
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour away
Who keepeth everyone in His care
