Not Holding Back The Years, But Racking Up The Points

“I'm lovin' the 80s ~ Week 3 of April!! (Then and now)
Sorry, Something is wrong with my camera, so the current picture is off on color. Also, we couldn't get the timer to work, so somebody had to take the picture. You already know what I look like now.
Yesterday I saw these two gentlemen for the first time in 26 years, and they had not seen one another in 25 years. We all graduated from high school together in 1982. Bill and Jim had also gone to Elementary school together. Jim was my first "sanctioned" boyfriend (meaning my parents gave permission) in my sophomore year.
Our get together yesterday was great. We talked as if we had seen one another only last month instead of a quarter of a century ago, and had a wonderful time. What was supposed to be an early evening, as the two of them had to work this morning and Jim had a 1-1/2 hour drive home, turned into a very late night, ending after 2 am. Since we've decided that one evening is not enough, we have plans in the works to go camping the week after Memorial Day. Jim will bring his wife too (and you have to know how curious I am), and nobody will have to worry about drinking too much. We're also going to invite some other people that I have kept in touch with and that they have kept in touch with, and just have our own reunion. I can just see it now. The campground resort is going to revoke my membership, LOL.
You can't quite see it in my senior picture above, but the necklace I'm wearing was one that Jim had given me for Christmas when we were dating. I wore that necklace last night. We get sentimental about that kind of stuff. Any men reading this, take note. You can't ever go wrong with jewelery.
Oh, and which one is Bill and which one Jim? I'll let you guess.
