High School Reunion - Year 42.5

Recently attended a high school mini-reunion. Half way between my 40th and 45th year reunions. I had fun. I always enjoy our reunions. Good people. Seriously.

We met in Branson, MO. Playground of Mid-America's Senior Citizens. Lots of Country music - very tolerable. No Gambling - thank God. Very quite after 10 PM. Plenty of discount shopping at the Super Walmart.

Laura and I with my classmates attended a Dixie Stampede show that is owned by Dolly Parton. It was a dinner show. Dinner was good Southern food but we had to eat with our fingers. Was this typical of the 1800's South?

We had our picture taken when we arrived for the Stampede. I'm kneeling in the lower left. My wife, Laura, is sitting on the stool next to me. One classmate and her husband were in town but not in the picture because he was busy winning the International Country Gospel award for best male vocalist.

I graduated HS in 66 ... guess you have a few years on me :)

Looks like you got close to my neck of the woods in Branson ... we live about 4 hours from there by car.

I graduated HS in 64 in Sedan, KS. Sedan is still alive but they have to fight hard to do so. I spent 4 years in the Navy 65-69. I graduated from Emporia State in 74 and Kansas State in 76. I haven't lived in KS since then but I attend all the reunions. Where do you live in KS?
