This past Saturday was my High School Reunion. We are the class of 1970 (you can figure the math!) I am so glad I attended. I have gone to all of the reunions they've had and have really been so glad.
Cardinal Mooney was a split co-ed school. Physically, it was a "V" shaped school - a mirror image on each side. From the front, the east wing was the boys school and the west wing the girls. Heaven help the poor soul who wandered onto the wrong side! So, for the most part the girls and boys only knew each other if your friends were dating a boy/girl in your group, otherwise zip!
It so happens my hubby Peter was in the class of 1969, but I never knew him until we met in 1977. We also married that year after a whirlwind 4 month romance. ;-) In 1980 we attended my 10th year reunion. A couple of the girls came up to me and said, we can't believe you married Peter Penkin!!! I was like oh, why. They were like - oh he was sooo cute in high school, everyone thought so. Hmmm, I didn't know that. And the years that people had children, divorced, passed away, very sad. It was really nice to reconnect again and Facebook has made it fun and easy.
So, sitting at dinner the group I was with were talking about how they were the kids that rode the "City Bus" and one of the guys mentioned, yeah, we were the city kids, ya know from Lyell and Glide, I grew up on Rockview Terrace. I said, really, I just sold a house this week at 123 Rockview Terrace. His jaw just dropped, he said that was where I grew up - I thought he was kidding, he was serious. When his Mom passed away, he sold it to the woman that was selling it now and my clients were the new buyers! Amazing! I told him how it was still really nice and the buyers were so excited.
Anyway, this photo is of the group of us that went to Our Lady of Mercy Elementary school too! Since 1st grade together! If you have a reunion coming up, think about attending. I was glad I did.
