Happy 91st Birthday!

Had my mother not passed away over 6 years ago, she would have turned 91 today. I scammed this picture from her obit and for other pictures, be sure to go to the label at the bottom of this post entitled "mom" or just click that link.

When I was home, I met up with a High School pal with whom I recently reconnected. (Thanks Colin and June!) We reminisced at length and I asked his wife to bring me our Yearbooks. She found Grades 9-12 but not 13, which is too bad for it had all my good pics.

Here are some High School highlights...

No directory of names here so you'll just have to figure out which one I am.

I never did achieve my ambition to "hand in assignments on time".

Although I was strangely absent from the photos, I was in the Chess Club though never on our championship team.

Yay, finally I made it into a Yearbook photo!

I was also in the Cards Club and we would play bridge almost daily for a few hours.

Like my brother before me, I joined the Classics Club where we partook in Toga Parties long before they were popularized in Animal House.

If you squint, you can see me in the Band. Below there's a closeup, can you spot me?

My brother Mark was a member of this Barbershop Quartet Septet.

Here is the album they put out when the renamed themselves, "The New City Singers".

Finally, I have no idea who these people are but I wanted to include the photo because it is so very wrong.

Happy Birthday Mom, thanks for putting up with my hijinks during High School. What with the Band and the Chess, Classics, and Cards Clubs, I was quite the rebel!
Too bad I don't have our Grade 13 Yearbook. I was also a Prefect and played a villain in the melodrama, The Secret of the Spyglass!

Happy Birthday to your mom! I love looking at old high school pictures! Love the crazy close and hair for the time.
