The Way We Were Wednesdays - BFFs

This picture is Mary-Jane one of my sister's best friends forever (BFFs) from high school. My sister had several strong personal friendships from high school. I think this picture was taken in 1975, around the time they finished high school.  It is not her baby, her baby is now in her 30's married and living in Albania, with babies of her own.  Mary-Jane went to work for GM shortly after high school and has been semi-retired for a couple of years now.  She and my sister still see one another from time to time.  

My BFFs from high school? There were few, I was the loaner, who never fit in well, and I either didn't know why, or didn't want to deal with it.  There is one special BFF left in Florida, she is married - with an amazing daughter - she is in poor health - I worry about her.  One other BFF I have given up on, I don't need abuse and intolerance in my life.  Facebook has put me back in contact with a bunch of past classmates.  It is nice to see and hear what they have done, but we have gone so far in 41 years. 


  1. Like Anne Marie, I have no BFFs from those days. Also reconnected with high school classmates via Facebook. Some pleasant connections, many should have stayed DISconnected. I had a group of friends outside school who were quite a bit older. That’s how I survived the high school years I think. I was a hippy. Don’t even have contact with my hippy friends from those days.

  2. I married my BFF a year after graduation. Our forty-fifth reunion should happen next year. We'll see.

  3. Mine were all dead by the time we were 40. Sorry to be a downer. It's not that any of them had terminal diseases or lived dangerously. Very odd when I think of it.
