Reply to self (by the numbers):

- Graduating Class of '67: 113; Years ago: 50; Current age approx. 67-69 (likely retired by now but still very mobile)
- Statistical % of HS grads living within 50-100 miles of hometown: Over 60% (Stanford)
- Stat. % of HS grads that have probably died: 15-20%
- Average reunion attendance: 20-30%; most popular reunion: 50th (a significant milestone); 2nd most popular: 10th (attendance ?)

"I guess you can't ever really go home again"
"Once you're gone - you're gone"
"Live in the now - not in the past"

Seems like some old clichés may have some truth to them (what a shame)!

Just attended my wife's 50th HS reunion; she did not attend THS.

Great time! About 40% of graduating class attended (most but not all retired); 20-25% had "passed away" but there were pictures to remember them. A few had serious medical conditions which prevented their attendance but met 5 people who travelled over 2,500 miles to join in the celebration. No special entertainment was necessary but a few enjoyed golfing earlier in the day. A lot of "mingling" and stories told of happy days gone bye.

So, THS class of '67, guess your reunion last year wasn't worth the effort or at least no one wants to talk about it - guess you're not the same people I remember. Rather sad - your loss!
