A few months ago my elementary school held a birthday party--an amazing 90 years old and still educating new generations of children. It was great to see people I had not seen in decades. As we entered the gym where the opening session was held we searched for empty seats. There weren't many available, but we found two together. As I sat down I glanced at the name tag on the lady sitting next to me and discovered someone who used to live next door to us when I was a young teenager. I cannot remember when I last saw her, but I would have still been in my teens. A long time.

It brought back memories of long-ago times. Fellow-students. Teachers. Activities such as Kindergarten rhythm band and Grade 7 girls choir. The fact that my Grade 8 teacher had been my mother's Grade 8 teacher back in the 1920s. Swinging on the tubular bars on the front lawn of the school. Of tripping over a low wire "fence" while running after the ball during a baseball game. I still have the scar on my knee from the contact with gravel. Hopscotch. Red Rover. Red Cross meetings with "talent" time. A visiting minister to teach from the Bible.

A fun day which I'm glad I didn't miss. They're already planning the 100th anniversary when they will open the time capsule. I didn't know they had time capsules back then, but it will be interesting to see what they placed there. Hopefully I'll be able to attend, but who knows? After all, I'll be 74 by then.
