A Senior Year

It’s slmost Comic Con time again.

Another meme, but it caught my fancy.
Tell us about your SENIOR year of high school! The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!!!

The year was: Class of 60 but should have been 59.
1. Did you know your spouse/partner? Neither, I met George in my own living room.
2. Did you car pool to school?  I transferred to Boyden’s from Chula Vista Senior High my last year in HS.  Boyden’s was Downtown San Diego, and sometimes I rode in with friends, and sometimes I rode the bus.
3. What kind of car did you did have? None until I inherited my Grandfather’s 57 Chevy in 1961.
4. What kind of car do you have now?  Two: 1. Grumpy is a 85 Chevy short-bed step-side pickup, and 2. Myrtle is a 2005 Toyota Corolla.

12. Were you a nerd? I read a lot and failed most of my classes until I got to Boyden’s.

22. Are you planning on going to your next reunion? The Boyden’s reunions sort of faded out.
23. Are you still in contact with people from school? Some from Boyden’s but none from all those eleven years in Chula Vista schools.  I hope they didn’t die in Vietnam.

  1. Interesting to learn about your life, the artist part of you especially.

  2. I had 2 days of Senior year. That's it. GED me. I have four college degrees, however, three of them grad degrees.

    1. Naw....you learned it all in graduate school. :)

  3. Love the factoids about you, thanks for sharing. My senior year? As Bill the Cat says "THBBFT!" My senior year was mostly art classes and study hall.

  4. You've got me thinking back on my senior year and working on a post to answer the questions.

  5. I don't think I got to liking school until after I graduated from college. I was not a happy student. I love that comic con outfit. What a great photo!

  6. I would have a lot of 'No' answers. How dull I was.


What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
