Anniversaries and Reunions!

Today marked my 36th Anniversary with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service–my what a mouthful. I am happy to say I have loved almost every minute of it. It is truly a blessing when you find a career or job that you love and look forward to going to work!  But I had the day off!

Today was the start of my 40th High School Class reunion from Parkview High School in LR.  My high school friend and college roommate for 2 years drove in from Indiana and several of us met up this morning and took the day to explore LR.  Cindy and I took Paula and her husband Joe to see the sculpture garden and walk the gardens and paths down by the River Market. sculpture garden (2) sculpture garden (6) sculpture garden (10) sculpture garden (13) sculpture garden (15)

We went to the Butler Center, then to the old Dempsey Bakery and Kent Walker’s Cheese, where we sampled his wares and were serenaded by friend Al Kent walker cheese july1 (3) Kent walker cheese july1 (2) Kent walker cheese july1 (1) Then we did a driving tour of Little Rock, showing her all the changes that have occurred while she has been gone.  I dropped them off and had time to water plants and read a bit before heading back downtown for the opening event of our reunion. I always thought people who went to their 40 or 50 year reunions were old, but perspectives have changed a bit!  It was fun catching up with old friends and meeting new ones, and listening and dancing to disco tunes!  high school 40 year reunion (3) high school 40 year reunion (4) high school 40 year reunion (7) high school 40 year reunion (8)

I don’t think any of us have aged at all!  high school 40 year reunion (1)\

Tomorrow some of us will meet up again before the official final dinner.  It should be fun!
