In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Can you believe I went parasailing, along with daughter Caroline and grandson Caleb at Panama City Beach last week? The 3 of us went up together, and had 2 dips, one of which put us all the way under; I had a big taste of saltwater! It was great fun, and a wonderful way for me to celebrate the end of chemo and feeling good again! This is the parachute we used. I must say it was quite an experience also "hopping" from moving banana boat to moving speed boat during the process.
