The Cavalier spirit never dies
Yeah, you. Some of you I saw last night -- and was very happy to see -- and some of you didn't make it to the Hyatt Regency, to Arlington or even to the East Coast. Some of you are no longer with us, but let's be reasonable. You're not the ones I'm trying to reach.
This is a blog, not a seance.
Inspired by the lovely and vivacious Dale Morgan and the efforts she has put into all our reunions, I've decided to make the Class of '67 the gift of a Website. My motive isn't entirely unselfish; I'm hoping that some of you will discover and become frequent visitors to my other two blogs.
As you'll see, on the verge of decrepitude and retirement (not that there's anything wrong with that), I'm trying to change the world.
What I'm doing here is putting together a place where folks can meet and comment regularly about their lives, their kids (legitimate and otherwise) and most of all their memories.
Many of you know me. Some don't. Some of you doubtless wish you didn't.
I'm 57 years old -- 58 in December -- and living in Southern California. I write for a living and I have an amazing wife and two spectacular children. Of course I'll post pictures from time to time and you'll humor me.
What I'll do once a week or more is post something to give all of you a chance to respond. Any time any of you would like to post an essay, a topic or just let off some steam, e-mail it to me and I will post it for you.
So let's get going.
Why don't we start with y'all posting your thoughts on the reunion.
Discuss among yourselves: Eggplant, egg or plant?
Editor's note: Mike, you're not half as funny as you think you are.
Sure, but they don't know that.
Editor's note: They will.
