I was reading a thread and toomanytoys84 made a post that struck close to home for me. I grew up in a small town (pop. 50+/-). Came time to go to high school. Freshman year was cool at Whitewater, Ks. Next year, they consolidated two schools into one, Whitewater/Potwin (Remington High school). That was cool, as these were two rival schools. Everyone was pretty happy as we had a brand new school to go to. That was the year RFK was killed in Dallas. My Dad got hurt at work and screwed around, so the junior year we had to move to Muskogee, OK. I don't even remember that year, just a blur. No friends there to speak of. Following year, Senior, moved to Miami, OK. Same thing, only a blur. But I do remember I graduated with the GREAT Steve Owens! Sorry SOB! Made my day when his football career went SOUTH!
Anyway here's the thread that started all this:
I went to one HS reunion, think it was the 25th for Remington. Never have heard a word from Miami High School. But I doubt I would go!
Top this all off with 19 months active duty in 'Nam, and i have a good case of PTSD going. But I do okay most of the time. Just cherish to ones I call friends and that is you folks here!
