It's Been 25 years

Recommended Posts

Well fellow Sickth Corpse - July 25th will be the anniversary of our Graduation. I wonder how many of you are out there. I was really wanting to do some kind of reunion, but I guess that just didn't work out.

We had fun, for the most part. If I can write off the Emporia months of our last year I'd say the whole experience wasn't too bad. But we were lucky - it didn't get really oppressive until around 1980. We were done by then.

I have no regrets. The only sadness I have is that I'm pretty sure I won't ever see most of you again.

Love

Hope R. color>size>face>

P.S. On the brighter side, July 21st will be THREE years since John and I were asked to leave TWI! Now THAT'S really something to celebrate!

Maybe it was because I was probably in charge of the coffe during your time there? Not that you knew who was screwing it up, but I know that to coffee drinkers there can be little else that matters...especially if a non drinker is running the show.

Hope, congratulations on both counts!!! I sponsored a wonderful lady from Louisville, KY, in the sicksth corp all 3 years, Evon Priddy.

Do you remember her? She had a great sense of humor and a true love of God.

def, I was a wow in Cumberland MD 1977-1978. Where were you a wow that year?

Hard to believe it has been 25 years.

Dovey and Hope, you are right... the best year is the year I left twi....1994.

The decisions we make today form our future.

yea, Hope--it's starting to fade after all these years. I would say we made it good in spite of all the petty aspects of the "training". The first year was fun mostly because there were so few yahoos around to constantly reprove and correct. Of course, we did pay the price our last year--I can almost hear the music from the "Wizard of Oz" when they're marching into the wicked witchs' castle--and the gates SHUT with a clang! How one guy could manage to project his unhappiness on everyone--nice work, Gerald!!

...but Rome City was the Emerald City and all was goodness and light...I wish Evan was around so he could tell us what it was like to go from Heaven to hell! What a shock the other half had...

Wow - I didn't realize it was that long! All I can say is, what a long strange trip its been. So, I guess us 7th corpse will be celebrating(?) next year. Glad we've recovered and are moving on with life. Its good to be free!

Too funny Hills and Alfakat.....the tejas farm "moon shot" was enroute on the bus....I saw it live through the rear view mirror while trying to drive the broken down old bus we were in . Evan probably should show up with more incite on that.

And yes congratulations! I learned many things from you elder sixth Corps. Jon Mahoney taught me ten different ways to prepare chikken and wash it down wif Budweiser. Thanks for the memories and I wish you all much happiness and success in the next twenty five years.
