"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

all through the changes, the soul never dies

More reunion recaps:
  • Emily, including the story about the time Goofy set the football field on fire.
  • Angelle on the weekend in general (thanks for the link, Emily), in which her husband compares crazy David to Chanandler Bong
  • I should mention that the numerous stories about fireworks/explosives are a somewhat frightening indication of the high school obsessions of our guy friends. It may be because we had a really cool chemistry teacher, but she never would've approved of this stuff, or told them how to build bombs. Crazy David was forever coming up with ingenious ways to use fireworks for dishonorable purposes. He and Goofy really did set the football field on fire - at halftime. With the band on the field. The boys from church did a series of experiments which involved strapping their old GI Joes to bottle rockets "just to see what will happen." They later graduated to building a CO2 bomb and detonating it in a tree stump somewhere out in the woods. Oh, the memories. It's a wonder they're all still alive.

Oh, Ms. Mauldin had nothin' to do with it - when you're crazy, you're crazy...

I agree. Crazy is as crazy does.

Did you hear Benny say that Ms. Mauldin teaches his kids' Sunday school class?
