Today I'll leave our annual Family Reunion early and arrive a little late to our 40th Class Reunion.
Gonna be an interesting and emotional day.  {{{ {{ { Please send me good vibes! } }} }}}

First one in the city
Wearin' all those grass stained jeans
Nothing is forgotten, everyone is pleased.
Someone got his hair cut
The girls have lots to say
His friends had felt more comfortable
With it worn the other way
And I don't know if I'll see you again.
Next one at the old house
Snow is on the ground
Photographs and wine are passed around.
Someone toasts an absent friend
Another takes his seat.
They gather round the dying fire
But the circle's not complete
And I don't know if I'll see you again.
Last one by the highway
Wind blows through thin smiles.
Someone made a wrong turn
Missed a joke by miles.
Someone got her hair cut
A tear is in her eye
But no one even comments
 Except to say 'goodbye'
And I don't know if I'll see you again.
~ Carly Simon, Eddie Kramer, Billy Mernit
