Home Towns

My 40 year class reunion was this past weekend - I debated forever about going - not a lot of my close high school friends were going - it's not near where I live now - it's about a 3 hour drive- and most of my friends moved far away- We were having a bridal shower for my niece that afternoon, in my home town, so I was going to be in town anyway and decided to just leave it to chance. I'd had a few emails from friends asking me to go, and when 5 pm rolled around, I made the decision to go!

I had a very enjoyable evening - I even surprised myself! I reconnected with a number of friends and we spent hours talking and catching up! There was a dance separate from the reunion, and people finally started heading that way about 8:30- 4 of us decided we'd rather talk without the noise from a band, and decided to head over to Superior Dairy. Now, I have to tell you, Superior Dairy is an independent dairy that has been in the town for I swear- about 75-100 years. It's family owned and they make the Best and I mean BEST Ice cream in the world. I just wanted a single scoop of chocolate chip, my all time favorite - here's a single scoop:

I even told the server I only ordered a single scoop, and she said this IS a single scoop! Needless to say, none of us even came close to finishing these.

I'm actually looking forward to the 50th! Holy cow - did I really say 50 years since graduation - good grief - that will seem like a lifetime- oh, it is!

I wish I could have gone for a variety of reasons. The "Dairy" being one of them, but as you know there was no way I could have gone. If circumstances had been different, I would gladly have gone with you. Maybe for the fiftieth, like you said. I hope I don't have to wait that long for one of those chocolate milkshakes. Yummmmmmm!
