Wish I Was 18 Again

Can You Believe its been  42 years since we graduated?  I attended my final two years at Lake Roosevelt in Coulee Dam, and Janice was a 12 year veteran there. My Dad moved there to work on the 3rd powerhouse. We have lost five from our class, including my best friend in high school. Those 5 included John Smith, Mike Butte, John Manley, Dan Hearne and Randy Webley. I am real proud of our class, some have overcome difficulties and I think I can say we are still learning. Most of our old high school has been replaced with a new building, just a year ago, or so. I made this video just after our 40 year class reunion. We are heading to Coulee Dam today to Paint The Town one more time!

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have for her birthday. "I'd like to be six again", she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.
He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M and M's. What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, 'Well Dear, what was it like being six again?' Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size, you idiot!"
The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.  
This is the class of 73 on 8-5-16 at Coulee Dam Class Reunion
