I have lived in Oklahoma since 1974. It's a wonderfully laid-back, sunshiny place to live. But, it's not, and never will be, home. I return to Maryland every other year. I am compelled to show my kids & grandkids the coolest places they could ever want to travel to, so that when I am old & can't drive, they will want to take me on their trips to those same cool places.

Wow! It's about time you reconnected with some of us!! I have looked for you regularly. No reunion for me. My simple reply was that I still had 3 children (adopted) in high school, who couldn't be left with Jim by himself. Since my simple answer, there have been three surgeries, a police report, three changes of schools & two residence changes, bullying, none of which are mine, thank God for that. Staying a little too busy right at the moment....
Sorry to be missing you. I hope you will be posting a photo here or joining us on the facebook Crossland sites - and don't get lost again.
Do you keep up with Teddy at all? Hugs & best wishes.

-Comment allez-vous?
-Très bien, et vous Mme?
-Joyeux anniversaire, Diana! Et bien d'autres encore!

I LOVE remembering what I can of the French language!
We are adoptive parents also. Three grown sons of our making, and then a sibling group of three came to be with us. They are all still in high school, and quite needy. Hence, the reason for my non-attendance at the reunion. This is my version of a "who'da thought?" moment in time. My faith is much stronger since my high school days at Bell's Methodist, not necessarily because of the kiddos, but because I am totally committed. I will say that I don't take my parenting "failures" as badly as I used it once I give it all to God..... Yay!

Hugs to you, my friend!!

Hey Steve. It's Mardie from Senior Prom '68. Ron & I are still friends after all these years. It was nice to double date with you & your date. And then I moved to Chicago right away & you dropped off the map. Did you marry her? (I see your wife is a '69 grad.) we have plenty of our class members in Florida, but I might be the only one in OK.
Add photos, if you can, and if you're on Facebook, there are 2 CHS alumni groups that are for our class.
Take care. Glad to see you popped back up! Happy New Year!

I have been affected by Facebook, plus I'm exhausted after a long day trip to see my 15-year-old son, who temporarily resides at a children's home. He is the oldest of three siblings that we adopted, who were born to addicted & abusive parents.
As I say, affected by Facebook, I just want to say it's good to see you, Mark, and I "LIKE" your profile info & comment to John. ??
OH! And hope you had a Super Happy Birthday!
