Class Reunion Rodeo #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

This summer, my high school class of 1980 will hold a combined reunion with the class of 1981 in July to co-inside with the annual Sheridan Wyo Rodeo. I’ve never been a fan of the rodeo, but I liked the parade as a kid. One of the reunion activities will be to attend the rodeo. There’s also an ice breaker, a golf tournament, and a late-night bar crawl during the street dance following the rodeo. The icebreaker sounds good, since it’ll be catered by a local Mexican restaurant, but the bar crawl I could do without. I’m definitely getting old.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

  1. I’ve never been to any of my reunions but I don’t believe any of them had as many activities! Sounds pretty cool. Something for everyone. I don’t know why, but I don’t picture golf as a popular sport in Wyoming. Rodeos for sure, skiing definitely. Guess I have an idealized vision of wide open spaces and ranches for miles and miles, no doubt culled from the movies 😀

  2. Class reunions.
    Two words: aiiyyeee!
    lol
    Have not ever attended one. Have never be tempted, but oddly as age tries to reframe my memories the idea becomes slightly more enticing.
    (Emphasis on slightly lol)

    1. It’s possible your not being invited to your reunions is an oversight. If you use Facebook, you could check there to see if this year’s reunion has an event page. Once you like that page, you should receive updates on your timeline and by email. Thank you for reading and commenting.

  3. Class reunions can be fun. My class had 18 students from all over the place as it was an academy for girls and boarding school. I was a local girl. But we do have a Facebook page for a combination of the academy and local high school. It’s our own little reunion online.
