I graduated from high school 20 yrs ago! 20 YEARS! It didn't help that my daughter said to me the other day "Mom, you have a lot of gray hair."

I got contacted a couple months ago from the student class president of my graduating class. She was calling to make sure she had my correct contact info for our 20yr reunion next summer. I opened a few beers after that phone call.

Well, I missed my HS 50th last October.

If there's a 20th reunion, I recommend going. I went to mine with real trepidation - it turned out we all were a little nervous. The thing was, we all thought we had been jerks in HS, so we were afraid to face our old classmates, but we all turned out very nice.

Our DIL has more grey hair than my W does. Now, if only I could get W to let her hair grow to length it was 40 years ago....

41 years for me. I went to the 20th and 40th reunions. At the 20th the guys all looked better than the women. At the 40th the women all looked better than the guys.

22 years here! DAMN!

Sorry AN

I'm glad I'm not alone in this realization. Where did the time go?

I would love it if my school had a reunion but we didn't even have one at 10 or 15, so I doubt one will happen at 20.

Oy, I know!!! Almost 50 years for me. Tempus fugit.

When I went to my 20th last year, we had a classmate that was a grandmother like 5 times over.

I believe she was pregnant our senior year, but I can't remember. I still am in shock about that.

30 years here. it seems unreal!
and someone from the bunch came up with a 50th birthday party for us this coming year instead of waiting the usual 5 or 10 years til we get together again!

geez. when I was in HS, I thought 30 was OLD

Just passed 31 since HS graduation. My HS doesn't have the "milestone" reunions. They have them every year, open to any class regardless. We've had people who showed up 50, 60 even 75 years after graduation.

I haven't attended a reunion in about 3 years or so and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future. Nothing there for me any more and my classmates never show up anyway... at least when I'm there.

As for grey hair, yup, got some and can't blame it on the grandkids either. Started going grey before GS1 was even a thought.

metamorphisis posted 9/12/2013 21:00 PM

Yikes Can't. I think if my school had them I'd be coming up on my 20th soon? Maybe last year. I can't remember

5 grandkids by now? I'm 39 for heavens sake. Just NO.
