Hey! I went to my 40th high school reunion on Saturday night! It was great to see old friends and familiar faces, some I have not seen since 1975! It was held at Burge Plantation which is popular as a wedding venue.
Our reunion was at the hunting club lodge (it is such a huge place) and the main house with the beautiful white columns, which is listed on the register of National Historic Places? I never saw that, but maybe if I ever get back there, I will see it! The history of this antebellum plantation is fascinating to me, you may read about it just here. (You can click on the condensed version of the history, if you don't have much time!)
We were a bit surprised to see a statue of a hunter but after all, it was a hunting club! The sunset was lovely and as the sun went down, the bats were flying over our heads as we were outside quietly chatting. (Bats eat insects and I am hoping they were eating the mosquitoes!)
|Our meal was BBQ and hot dogs and hamburgers but the best thing...homemade ice cream and the strawberry was my favorite.|
We were the Rockdale County BULLDOGS, and I love that someone made this bulldog cake! That could not have been an easy thing to make! Can you even see the little tail at the back?
Not easy to make a bulldog look like a friendly dog! Our colors were red and black and there was a very nice floral arrangement in red and black, but sorry, I was talking too much and didn't get a photo! In fact, we didn't take hardly any photos, sorry!
These photo booths just seem so silly to me. You could never get me into one...UNLESS, I meet up with an old friend I haven't seen in 40 years! And then, I plop a jester's hat on my head and pose with fake lips! And how about if my friend wanders out to speak with someone and I have to go out and get her to finish the photos? Wouldn't that be funny? You tell me!
