    50th High School Reunion....funny!!!

    He was a widower and she a widow.
    They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class
    reunions in the last 20 years without fail.

    This 50th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.

    They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high.
    The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.

    Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

    After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes,..... yes I will!"

    The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.

    Did she say “Yes” or did she say “No?”
    He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous
    evening, but his mind was blank.

    He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation
    he picked up the phone and called her.

    First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening.
    As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me,
    did you say “Yes” or did you say “No?”

    "Why you silly man I said, ‘Yes. Yes I will.’ And I meant it with all my heart."

    The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

    Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!”
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    And my 50th is coming up, and somedays, that is just the way I am, too. Thanks so much for the chuckle.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I didn't go to my 50th reunion, because I didn't know any of those old, old people. LOL

    Very funny! Thanks for the laugh. Will have to share it with my husband. He went to his 50th reunion last October. I am familiar with some of these memory lapses. ROFLOL.

    Well, my 50th reunion passed 12 yrs. ago and I missed it. Wonder what would have happened if I had gotten to go to it?? Who knows! Maybe the football hero would finally ask me to marry him and with great glee, I would respond, "when pig fly". Ah, I am sure he is long gone by now. What was his name?

    So very funny, but I am getting to the age where it hits home a little harder than it used to. LOL

Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

    That's a good one! My memory isn't the best any more and my 50th is coming in 2015. Who knows what will happen at our 50th since we are getting so old.

    The only one I went to was the 50th this past October. Very interesting! Some of us looked fine. Some of us did not age well (they know who they are, I hope)!!!!

    Love it. I have never gone to a HS reunion since I moved across the country right after graduation. I have gone with my DH to his several times but mainly let him go by himself. I guess maybe I should go more often. LOL
    Who knew they could be so life changing!
