8th grade graduation party
I found a box of old photos that I believed I had lost many years ago. I've spent too many hours since reviving old memories, trying to remember places and names from once upon a time. Some have gone and some remain. Many I've scanned for my kids, which some day they will wonder who the hell was that, especially since I have provided no background info. They'll have to make up their own stories and fight amongst themselves over who's right.
The photo above is one I never expected to see again. My first girl friend at our 8th grade graduation party, taken on this date in 1966. She moved a month later, and I haven't seen, spoken to or hardly thought of her in 45 years until I saw this photo. I remember her fondly, and hope she's well. Should you recognize her, tell her I said hi.
