Diva has been talking about going down memory lane this past week. So it started me thinking about people I used to know:
Carrie Brown -- Knew her from first to eighth grade in Floydada (if you have to ask...) Carrie had polio and wore braces on her legs when we were in elementary school. The last time I saw her when in high school, when I was living in a different town. It was a football game, they were the "away team" and there's Carrie. A cheerleader. That made me happy.
Jimmy Nunn -- An Abernathy boy. A Methodist. Probably my best friend in high school. I still remember the time the principal sent him home because his hair was "too long" during Junior year. Jimmy's response? He went home and shaved his head.
Sheila Sturgis -- skip forward to the senior year in Montana. We hung out a lot. I guess I should have made it to that high school reunion last year.
Rose Patterson -- Probably the reason I'm a journalist. My high school English teacher and I suspect that she's probably passed away by now. She was a great teacher.
Janet Moore -- A year older than I in high school. She was the "newspaperwoman" the rest of us wanted to be. I always wondered if she wound up working at some big city paper.
There's so many more people that somehow either knowingly or unknowingly touched my life, and sometimes they still cross my mind.
