Unfortunately, I could attend our 50-51-52 reunion only electronically via weekend messaging, FaceTime and emails.  By Sunday, the words of the Bard of Avon came back to me, and they seemed altogether fitting: All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms. Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lined, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slippered pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side; His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything. (From As You Like It, Spoken by Jaques) So make the most of things from here on and be well, all.

Looking forward to spending some "reconnecting time" in Darien.  Been a tough couple of years but we made it! (You know you're getting old when all the albums you bought in high school and college are turning 50!)

Was si hoping to make it to the 51st as I haven't seen anyone Except Bryan Bowles and Nancy Leask since I visted Darien in 1972, after moving to AZ in 1966. Take lots of pics and have fun!

Looking forward to coming "home" for the 51st reunion.  Seattle has been my alternate home for many years and this will be my first time attending any of the class reunions functions.  I know, that is, let's hope for some good Fall weather and a great time!

Although I moved from Darien the middle of 8th grade, my memories of growing up in Darien are still "fresh" in my mind.  I remember so many of the names here.  I LOVED growing of in Darien. I'm thoroughly enjoying this! Laurel Griffiths Reeve

Well! That was an EXCELLENT gathering
of old friends! Very happy, very sad. We are older now. Very happy to celebrate life with all of you. There\'s a security and trust being with people who shared grade school experiences. Are stories are great now. Our lives nearly as long as our parents. God bless our parents. God bless
our classmates. Maybe we need to do this every 2 years?.............. need more time to share our lessons in life - more time to share love, compassion, and our new passions - renew connections - enjoy each others company.
If anyone needs a listener, someone to share with, someone to help ease the pain of loss - stop by BMW of Darien
and we\'ll have coffee and share. Thank you classmates. Creig Demarest

Comments: Hi Gang, I am sending my regrets for the Reunion this year. 3 Years ago I booked tickets to take my son to the NFL Hall of Fame week at the same time.  Please send my Hey-Hey-Hey to everyone and take lots of pictures so I can guess all the names. Love to All Billy C

Hi, Hope that this finds everyone well. I might as well bat 1000 and not make this reunion either. But need to be in New York in August so you never can tell.
How did our lives get so busy? Between work, travel, family and friends it is insane.
Still exploring for oil and gas.....and still love geophysics. Best life choice I ever made! My worst was.............well, there have been a few!
