[Oct 14-17, 2010 – Deerfield Beach, FL, US] Okay, so I had Yohi reunion withdrawals so I contacted Pati in Boca Raton, FL. I found her on Facebook a while back and we friended each other and had FaceBook posts and but that was about it for a while now. (She couldn’t make it to the reunion due to her surgery on her arm. I knew from band Freshman year at YoHi. I remember her from Sullivan’s Middle School too.) Anyway, long story short, I said I wanted to visit and she said sure, so we had lunch on Saturday at the Embassy Suites in Deerfield Beach. We talked for three hours. Wow, that was a ton of catching up to do.

[Oct 9, 2010 – Las Vegas, NV, US] Well, it’s been 35-36 years (!!!) since I saw anyone from YoHi (previously Yokohama High School, when I went it moved and was Yokosuka High School. Both were “Yo” so the nickname didn’t have to change. The official name of the school is the Nile C. Kinnick High School, US Navy Base in Japan.)
I didn’t know who half the people were and I only vaguely knew someone as a person I passed in the hallway or something. Others, I knew a tad bit more; but it was all kinda fuzzy. We all went to the yearbooks people brought and looked up people. Then it was oh yeah, I know you. Or I saw you in… etc. So I took bunch of pictures from the yearbook and posted a bunch of the people I knew…
