Two weeks ago I could boast as having never attended a reunion of any sort. Last Friday evening I attended my first ever and it wasn’t even the one I have been working on for the last three months. Go figure!
The one last Friday was actually a “spur-of-the-moment” on someone’s part to organize a small get-together of the folks who had been employed with Bechtel Corporation back in the early to mid-seventies and worked on the construction of “Arkansas Nuclear One Power Plant” which was, obviously, a nuclear power plant located in Russellville, Arkansas.
It was about a two-hour event and was quite enjoyable. I worked at the construction site from 1970 to around the middle of 1976. Some at the event had not started working there until after that so I wasn’t familiar with them of course. It was actually great to see some of the folks again. After all, it had been some thirty-five years since I had seen any of them. Most said I was unrecognizable and I have yet to decide if that is good or bad. I weighed around 150 lbs in those days and 170 lbs these days so that must be it!
Well, I have loitered long enough here this morning. Back to working on the “BIG” Rightsell Elementary School Reunion! I am working on a PowerPoint Presentation now… which has been quite interesting.
