Half a century ago this week

dhs commencement 01

I let an anniversary get past me this week – Monday was the 50th anniversary of the Delphi High School Class of 1963 commencement.

That’s me on the far right, adjusting my gown in the school auditorium before we lined up and filed into the gym next door for a mostly forgettable ceremony. It was one of those days when I was happy to be an underachiever because that meant I escaped having to come up with valedictorian or salutatorian remarks.

What a long, strange trip it’s been.
