I had just turned 18. It was my senior year in high school, and I was headed up to Ole Miss during spring break, to visit my boyfriend, to whom I am now married. I love this part of the letter:
"Wednesday night is our Twirp dance, but I'm staying home to type my term paper (English) so I can go up to see Bill the next day."
Preview of coming attractions?
Speaking of 40 years ago, I got a birthday card from a friend I haven't seen in almost 40 years... she was matron of honor in my wedding in June of 1970! Kathy and I graduated from Murrah High School together in 1969, and a year later, she beat me to the altar by one week. We were in eachother's weddings in June of 1969.
Here she is, helping me with the garter that Bill would throw to the groomsmen.
And here she is, in the photo she sent with my birthday card this week, with her husband and their six grandchildren!
Can't wait to see Kathy at our 40th high school reunion in Jackson this summer. Actually, I have a feeling I'll see her before then....
