Comments: Left after graduation only to return and off to 'college' for two years, back home and stayed. Over the years I have had many different job titles, loved them all, but now I mostly stay at home on the farm raising rabbits and donkeys (you could say I have a 'thing' for longears!) Yep, donkeys ~ standards~, not minis or mammoths, used for guardians, therapy, pets and protectors, My husband and I bred and raised TB racehorses for 28+ years and some pretty pleasure horses too, but now it's donkeys, they're good for the soul and what ails ye! Blissfully married to the same kind man for 35 years this year, I don't know what I would have been without him. Yes, I'm on FB if you can find me, send me a message.

Comments: Wow, thirty five years. If there are any plans or interest in a reunion, please count me in. I was so disappointed that I let the 30th slip by.

Planned reunion or not, I’ve not been back to NPR since graduation, and am considering making a trip back, just too see how the area has changed. Anybody interested in a mini-reunion or micro-reunion, drop me a line.

Peace

A picture long ago, taken by chance
Of a girl and a boy in a slow dance
He was kind of spirit and always ready to smile
I am so glad to have know him, if only for a while
The yearbook holds this picture true
and it gives me a chance to say thank you!

Thanks Eric for the dance and memory.
You are missed,
Wanda
