45th Andrew Jackson High School Reunion

Andrew Jackson High School, Jax., FL, Class of 1964, recently held their 45th high school reunion at the Marriott at JTB, Jax., FL. While there were about 130 people present, I don't know what we would have done if more had shown up. My jaws hurt at the end of the event - smiling, laughing and talking with all our friends we hadn't seen since the past reunion - some of them attending their first reunion. Of course there were many friends you just couldn't talk with as much as you'd like - and some of them had changed so we didn't recognize them. Wow!

While we're not looking forward to talking about our 50th, we are looking forward to seeing old friends in 5 years. We appreciated all the time, effort and work of the Reunion Committee. It was a fantastic weekend. Oh yes, it was great to be at the Marriott, but we looked forward to getting back in our comfortable sleep number bed in the RV!

On Monday morning, we're saying goodbye to everyone, and heading out to Perry, GA to meet Ray and Louise DeCarlo, Davenport, FL, and travel with them for the next couple of weeks.
