Yes / No – Do I go???? Well, some I have attended and some I’ve skipped. Thing is, between the Cabana Boy and I we can rack up some serious time & money if we decide to do all of ours. He is Mills Class of 86. I am Cabot High School Class of 87 & 88. Yep, that’s right I have a graduating class, which was 1987, and was a classmate in the Class of 88 K – 10th.
Cabot High School Campus
Panther football is the real main attraction!
So, when the 30 year reunion was approaching we thought we’d try to make some of 3. His class didn’t find enough interest to even plan one. Last year we had a small – medium turn out for Cabot High School 87 alums. A couple of weekends ago we converged on the campus and in a local venue outside the edge of town for two evenings of reconnecting.
Friday after game event @ Dick & Elsie’s Place
A HUGE “thank you” to all of those on the committee who worked so hard to make this event successful!
It was excellent to meet spouses. We shared fond memories, as well as made new ones. There were tales of children and grands, new loves and lost ones, heartaches and heartbreaks. Most of all there was an electricity that filled the air. The buzz that made us want to go to school, share a common bond, take care of our fellow classmates & friends.

I tried to talk to most. Some I realized, I just didn’t know, so if I didn’t speak, I’m sorry. Please come to the next one and make sure I do. My only request was for the names on the name tags be a LOT larger font or pass out readers, LOL.
You drop me a comment and stay in touch. I would love to stay in contact and not just have to “catch up.” We never know what the next 5 years holds…. May all who read this be blessed. Be brave – we’ve ALL changed…some more than others. Be forgiving – if you’ve never went to a reunion because of a teenage wound, please allow for time to have healed it. Give it a go…you just never know…you may just have the time of your life!
Living a life in my Rhapsodyville Redneck world,
BTW would love for you all to subscribe to any / all the social media that apply to you. If for no other reason than to help a girl out. I can share just how much I was NOT learning is school?(sorry, to any of my former teachers…..). I promise a grammar nightmare or two, if you are an editor at heart.
A super special huge “Thank You” to Sue Ollar for most all of the incredible photos! Please check out & LIKE her page on FB: Suzy’s Shots. For anyone in the Dallas area you have a terrific photographer that you should be using.
For A LOT more pictures head over to the Class of 88 FB page.

Awesome post, love three Israel part. Been there myself once, beautiful place, so much history.
Thank you! I can’t wait to go back this spring. I learn so much each time I’m there.
It was really great seeing everyone again at the reunion. In fact it inspired me to make a video about my fellow Panthers…
