"When I think back on all the crap I learned in High School, it's a wonder I can think at all."

This makes a good open lyric to a song but last night my classmates and I gathered for our reunion and we thought back on all the things we did in high school and it was fantastic! Some of us may not have the memory we once had but utilizing our collective memory, we were able to recall everything that happened during those four yeas (a probably some things that didn't happen)

It's not at all like Rick Nelson's Garden Party, everyone knew each others names (name tags did help) The school was small so it was a little bit like Cheers where everyone knew your name when we were in school.

Over the past forty-five years our class has spread from Connecticut to Alaska to New Zeeland but for a couple of hours, we were together again remembering the good times of the last years of real innocence (OK bad choice of words but once you start college, life becomes sort of real)

  


Change With the Times!

It's not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.

THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN

Friday, September 10, 2010

THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will.
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN.
