Some thoughts from my reunion

Wow, am I out of touch or did blogger really change?  It's taken me ten minutes to figure out how to make a new post.  I guess that's what I get for being a crummy poster.

My reunion was awesome as I knew it would be.  So many people showed up. Close 39 or 40 of the surviving 60 of 62.  I was thrilled and honored to be able to share a few words with these people that mean so much to me.

I think my speech went alright.  The introduction that Greg gave me was beyond phenomenal.  He set the bar very high and I wish it had been recorded.  Such kind words.  I can hardly wait to se him again at Rocking the Rivers.  I would link it but don't know how on this format. (Honestly, I don't have a tool bar or anything that looks remotely familiar.  I guess I'll have to to some research.  Anyway, here's my presentation to my lifelong friends.  I hope you like it.

EDITL OK, maybe I just found the tool bar but the video must be to new because it still isn't showing up. Regardless, I hate the new format.  "Hey you kids!! Get off my lawn"  God how I hate being old and grumpy.

I loved that line myself. It was the head football coach I was talking about. But your point is well taken. I just hoped it washed out. I hope that it meant something. I think it did. It was very humbling for me and it was a very proud moment for me. They all do mean so much to me.

Good morning MRM,

Good job, you handle yourself well in front of a crowd. It was an enjoyable speech even for someone not from Malta

Thank you Karl. That's high praise as it was for such a specific audience. It means a lot.
