July 03, 2004 I didn't talk about EVERYONE from my undergrad days

I received an email today from a friend from undergrad. This friend pointed out that he had not been mentioned in the previous post - Theatre Reunion, of sorts - about my friends from my Ball State days. So here John Joyner is your mention.

In college I considered John a good friend...when we were speaking. LOL I don't even remember why but it seems that something would happen and I, was it only me...gezzz I don't remember, would get upset and stop speaking to him for lengthy periods of time. Not sure he even knew that was happening. I could be a bit mercurial in my 20's.

John is one of the few people who has periodically caught up with me over the years...his initiation. I have always appreciated that point. At the "reunion" I even mentioned that to someone and said it had been awhile since I had spoken to him. Life is cool in how the threads play out.

His email gave me updates on a few folks, including Mark "Rocky" Hart who I mentioned in the previous post. Seems my buddy Rocky, who has no appreciable web presence, is a self-proclaimed technophob. A condition not unusual to people of our age group...though I didn't actually expect to see a serious case of it in my friends.

I ran a quick vanity search on John's name to see if there was something interesting to link...seems by name alone he could be - a member of the BHS class of 1963 (only if he was REALLY slow in school), a member of The Historic Marion Revitalization Association of Marion SC, President of the Saipan Racquetball Federation, or a now deceased gentleman with an interest in Kung Fu. He will have to respond so we know which one is accurate. LOL

Since this thread is basically about ancient history...though these are people I care about there is always the hope that new stories are yet to be lived...I decided a drawing of the ruins of a theatre at Pompeii was appropriate to accompany these words.

I always knew you were an old soul John. Just would not have guessed you were quite that old. LOL
