With pictures...

....I created a time machine.

....I took a bunch of people back to a time when things were so much simpler.

....I managed to reconnect a family of old pals.

....I reminded people of the "family member" we lost.

....I made someone smile.

....I made myself happy.

....it was brought to my memory that I used my senior skip day to go watch the Prince of Egypt with buddies. The cartoon Prince of Egypt! A bunch of 17 and 18 year olds using a skip day to go watch a cartoon!!!!! I was such a NERD!



This is me warming up some time in the mid 90's before a parade. From time to time I really wish I could go back and experience certain events over again. *sigh*

I used to skip school to hang out SOMETIMES, at Barnes & Noble, younot the only nerd, well I was a semi nerd. I love pictures, it does capture time for us, and lets us relive an experience.

You not the only one who wishes they could go back in time and expereince certain events all over again.

Did you go to Band Camp and everything too?

Wow the Tuba too...hmmm yeah you probably was kinda a nerd.

You got me beat! At least we went to the movies! LOL!

Band Camp was the best! You know what the chick said about band camp in the 1st American Pie movie? Well it's true! LOL!

I played a few instruments but that's the one I stuck to in high school.

I was a cool nerd though! HAHAHAHA!

I was in the band for one yr. I played the flute. I wanted to play the percussion but since my parents had already brought my sister a flute (she was in the band for 6 yrs) my mom felt like there was no need to buy another instrument. lol So I played the flute. Hated it. That's why I only lasted for a yr.

There are so many things/events I wish I could go back and do again.
