The Power of the Internet
I joined Facebook back in February, and then Classmates.com, and was "found" by some friends from my past. This is the first time I've ever received an invite to my high school reunion, and it's sad I can't go, but I hope to see pictures on the Internet.
Ben's amazed this invite reached us, but there is only us on the phone book with our last name. (Though there is another family in Nelson, because we keep being rung up about a wee girl who doesn't show up at her swimming class.)
I'm not. I once received a letter addressed to "Mimi, Yokohama, Japan" in the early 80's from someone in the US not playing with a full deck; it had a stick of gum and an unintelligible scribbled note on the back of something or rather, and my mother almost reported it to the police.
Hi to everyone from Washburn Class of '77! I sure hope you all have a great time in July.
Incidentally, this is NDP's 1000th post. So yay to us, too!
