Best Reunion EVER!!!

The Serpentine Posse was back together again yesterday! Well, most of us. I'll take what I can get.

Let's start with the back story.... I was fortunate enough to grow up in a neighborhood that was like a big family. There's not much in common with all of us except where we lived. We were all different ages, races, religions. We all had different types of families at home. Yet, we had the best times ever growing up!! Most of the dumb things that happened should probably be in some teen movie somewhere. Being chased and attacked by bees, and dogs, and Mikey. Sitting out on lawns talking until Bos's street light came on and they had to go in. Waterfights! Digging recon huts in the gully to trap the WATTLINGS. Burn -master tournaments. Make-shift clubhouses. Who was which character in the movie "Goonies". Go-carts that fell apart on the first run. Ice blocking at Eastmont. Toilet papering almost EVERY night in the summertime. Keeping a dead pet rat in a can. Wondering why in the world did Vic think that mohawk look good? Pollywog hunting. Breaking in to Eastmont to play "Smear the Queer", and blaming poor Mikey when the cops came. Adam stealing cookies and still denying it when one rolled out of his pant leg. Making ghetto slip and slides with garbage bags. Tyson NEVER wearing shoes! Bushy wearing a t-shirt that said, "New Kids Under The Block" for about 2 weeks straight. White people break dancing. "Delroy's World" and "Asthma Man". Older kids making gross "potions" and making the younger kids drink it.

You could never ask for a better group of people to share a history with. We may have scattered in different directions, but we will always be here for each other. Hopefully we have learned our lesson and will be together more often.

Now most of us have offspring! How fun to get them all together at Bear Park to make some new memories! I seriously haven't laughed that hard for a long long time.
Thanks everyone for coming!

I love reunions like that. There's nothing better than getting together with people that know you so well and you have so many memories with.

Vic and Al said...

Vic wants to know where his invite was? :) He said you better have another one so he can come down and include a few more of "the boys" and he volunteers you to plan it. Good heavens could you imagine all those boys together now? Everyone's stories crack me up. There's nothing like old friends!
We look forward to seeing you at the next reunion! ha ha

Oh my heavens, I had so much fun that night. Why didn't we do that ages ago? We all loved it so much. We did have the best childhood. No one will ever touch them! Lots of love. I am so happy that I got to see you! Your kids are beautiful!
