Lol. I am sure I wouldn't even know how to play the French Horn anymore. I am sorry I missed the reunion, but my aunt that is moving here to live was upset because she couldn't find a house to buy and I felt I had to help her. Just everyone else's stuff was more important than my stuff. I promise I will be at the next one...unless the angels take me early.

The 50-year class reunion was a hoot!  We had 24 classmates and 18 spouses attend the event in Fredericksburg at the Inn on Barons Creek.  It was a lovely venue and I think everyone had a great time.

My thanks to all who helped make this a special event.  A'llan and Sue were especially helpful in purchasing and preparing food for snacks and arranging our dinner on Saturday evening.  Debra (and John) were extremely gracious in opening up their suite to everyone for breakfast and wine and cheese.  And thanks to everyone who brought goodies of any kind!  We had SO much food we could have fed an army!! 

A big thanks to Vickie Bennett who brought the "In Memory" display of our departed classmates.  Vickie, we know you faced some extreme challenges in the days leading up to the reunion and you came through like the champion we know and love!  Thank you for going the extra mile for the Class of '68. 

And I cannot forget about Ron Huckabay, who provided our entertainment after dinner on Saturday.  Ron, you are just as funny now as you were in high school, if not more so!  We all appreciate your leading us down memory lane. 

Thank you all for making the effort to come to the reunion, some of you from great distances.  I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and visiting with all of you!  Let's do it again soon!!

Your old classmate,

Two things I had intended to include but forgot - please excuse the omission.

First and foremost - A BIG THANK YOU to Elaine, Sue and A'llan for putting this all together and pulling it off successfully.  It can be difficult to make that many Seniors happy.  Also, thanks to Debra and John for opening their temporary home to us.  (Although John did comment that he thought I resembled James Coburn - google "water hole number 3 movie cast" - ??? yes, I am susceptble to flattery - but judge for yourself)  Thanks to all who helped make the event so great.

Secondly, I had intended to establish the couple that had celebrated the most anniversaries.  I did overhear some conversations regarding such -but forgot to ask while I had the chance with everyone present.  My guess would be Anthony and Mary Mayes or Johnny and Doricell Davis.  Charlotte and I just celebred 41 - so I know we do not top that list.

Mostly, It meant SO much to me to have the opportunity to visit with everyone there.  Amazing what wonderful and loving people I talked to.  It is with much pride that I consider each of you a life-long friend.  Thanks

We enjoyed the reunion so much.  Thanks to everyone who came.  Charlie and I had a great time and it was so special to see everyone.  A very special time that many people never get to expericence.  We missed all that did not come.  Hopefully nex time.

Love to all.

Chuck Lay, He was one of our classmates I think I can say he touched each of us in a way that left a memory of him that brings a smile to our heart. I am so glad I made it to the reunion to visit with him there.

To all my TX friends and others in the wake of the winter storm, hope you are safe. So sorry for all you have had to endure during this time.

Take care - thinking of you.

Sorry to be the other Texan abroad last week but Charlotte and I were on the beach in La Manzanilla.  It did however get down to 54 one night in January here in Ajijic. Otherwise low 60s to low 80s everyday.
Charlotte and I do hope that all we know escaped serious harm. We were thinking of you.
Our sincere best wishes to all,

Hope this message finds everyone well and enjoying summer. 


I wanted to tell you about a project I did during the pandemic year. i asked some folks to send me a picture of themselves in their mask and then to answer the question: "WHO WILL WE BE WHEN THE MASKS COME OFF - as an individual, community, nation, the world?" 


Over 50 individuals responded with an image and their thoughts. I created an installation that I had the honor to show at the Museo de las Americas in Denver. I also created a video (link attached) if interested to see. Look closely, besides me one of our classmates is in it too.  


Is interesting now that the masks are coming off Who Will We Be?


Take care.

Cecilia:  Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful Pandemic Project with us.  I was mesmerized.  As I watched I  had the following reactions:

* The masks themselves demonstrated amazing creativity and focused our attention on your friends eyes --  many of which were quite expressive and beautiful.  But despite that, no one really looks good in a mask.

* There is a very deep yearning in our country for unity and peaceful coexistence.

* Many (particularly of our generation) intend to employ the reopening as an opportunity for a personal renaissance.

* You are very blessed to have so many optimistic and life-loving friends!

Love,  Elaine
