Has it Really been 20 years?

I am packed and I am leaving on a road trip in the morning.
My 20th High School Graduation Reunion is this weekend.

O_O

Where did the time go? Except for ya know, aches and pains in my joints and my body not quite feeling 18 these days, mentally I don't feel old. It's like this snuck up on me out of nowhere. But here it is and I am going back to my old hometown I haven't seen since I graduated and went off to college and then moved to California for 15 of those intervening years, then I've lived here in Kentucky going on three years.

I'm taking Sunday after the reunion to drive around and take pictures of what is still the same, what has changed and I'm going to see if the trailer I grew up in is still there and relive in pictures my childhood. I spent the first 21 years of my life there and now going back after 20 years is going to be joyful and tearful too.

Too late I'm afraid, I've already learned to ply my trade with yon balls of wool.

I'm looking forward to it, I haven't seen most of them in 20 years and only one I saw after, my best friend from 3rd grade forward at that and I last saw her in 1994! We've kept in touch regularly via letters and then e-mail but not seen her face to face in fifteen years. Sad.

My ten year high school reunion would be this year, if it hasn't happened already. I had no intention of going. I didn't have enough fond memories.

I'm just moving back to Oregon, myself. I would like to live somewhere for three years.
