I graduated from Lindenhurst High School in 1971. I know that most of you probably weren't even born yet; lol. This is my graduation photo.
The Village of Lindenhurst is located on the south shore of Long Island in New York. I grew up across the street from the canal where the clam boats were lined up ready to take off early every morning.
Instead of being discouraged, I worked on my twirling. I even attended a summer camp on my own to improve my skills. I made the twirling team as a high school freshman. And in my junior year, I became the Captain of the Lindenhurst High School twirlers.
I love Facebook as I've reconnected with so many of my Lindenhurst High School friends. After 39 years, we've all changed but it's such fun to share memories from those earlier years in our lives.
I've been following a local blogger named Lylah Ledner of Simple Home Living and La Maison Et Le Jardin. She writes about her Phoenix area Cactus Farm and loves all things French. BTW, if you've never visited her blogs ... you must.
We've emailed each other about eventually getting together.
And guess what? Through Facebook, I discovered that I went to high school with her husband Mike and his brother Bob! I was one year behind Mike and two years behind Bob.
It really is becoming a small world after all!
Blessings and happy Friday,
