A year after the Gonzaga Prep Junior Prom! How we changed! But now we were BIG TIME.......GRADUATING and had the world by the tail. Or so we thought. We went out to dinner, then the dance, double dated with our two best friends, Pat and Gretchen. My parents and Gretchen's had a pow-wow about the "after function" and said we could stay out all night!! WOW! This was an ENORMOUS permit from parents in the 50's! We headed for a party at Hayden Lake; somewhere along the way, Gretchen and I ran through a sprinkler on a golf course (we had changed clothes from our formals!). It was a hilarious night! And now Mike will escort me to my 56th Reunion of the Class of 1956 this summer, getting together after more than 50 years!
