Slim and Franke

Tuesday, January 02, 2007


My family moved in 1963, the summer before my senior year in high school. I loved the town we were leaving and had spent four years there forming friendships and memories. Determined to hate New Town, Oklahoma, I landed there crying but did not cry for long.

The kids were friendly. They embraced me and made me a part of their world. It was a happy high school graduation in May, 1964 with New Town friendships and New Town memories.

Suddenly we are in touch again. Our 60th birthdays in 2006 caused the girls to plan a party. I had to miss the 1964 Diva's party held this past September, but email addresses were compiled and cyber space has allowed us to make contact and start filling in the blanks since our New Town years. It is a good feeling to touch these friends again.

I know how great it is to have contact with your old school friends! I am in email contact with at least 5-6 of them, and sometimes it is like being 16 all over again (without all the angst)!
