I went with Nicole to a homecoming dance back in our sophomore, junior, or senior year (I can't remember which). I just remember that she was always a genuine soul, a caring individual, and a devoted student...putting herself through law school and doing the class of 1990 very proud.
It thrills me to know that I get representation at such events when I'm all the way down in Connecticut, and am even more excited to get photos like this.
Phew! Lots to cover.
I am, however, looking forward to the weekend, because I think the NCTE conference and Thanksgiving bonanza is catching up. I'm ready for a very long nap and a couple of days in sweatpants and lounging. It's tea and soup season, and I want to rest a little more.
But Nicole looks great and this is a photo to cherish for a long time. Some people never age and she's one of them. She still looks 18, whereas I'm looking more and more like an aged Ewok who is kin to Santa Claus. Not the greatest look (but it's the No Shave November thing).
Time to go. Here's to friendship.
