Lots of people on Facebook. I was curious once re old school mates but after meeting a couple after a 30 year interlude I decided the past was better left in the past.....

I found the girl that I had my first kiss with in the school p.e cupboard way back in 1978 on facebook. I though that was worth remembering lol Laugh    


Ha Ha.....know what you mean.By accident I stumbled upon my first sweetheart from 1969 on F(R)U site.Don't laugh 'cos that's what it felt like after swapping a couple of messages.Unrequited love never did well.

Oh yes definitely, the internet is brilliant for letting people get back in touch with each other. I remember meeting up with some old mates I knew back in the early 80's.

I know it sounds mad, but when I last saw them they were boys, I could only picture them that way. It seemed real funny to be sat in the pub with grown men. I don't know what I expected lol, I suppose we have to grow up Laugh

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

Yes Phill.....isn't it strange how you can instantly recognise old friends even after 30+ years ???? Weird....gotta be something to do with memory retention,it does trick us sometimes however !

Friends Reunited has gone all to hell. No longer can you look through endless lists of and occasional pictures of your former classmates and point and laugh.

I think most people use fakebook groups now to reconnect with old school pals but it's not quite as user friendly.
There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.

Hi Trevor:

Just saw your message re. old acquaintances at Central. I am pretty sure we were classmates, in 3 alpha up to 5 alpha. Beyond that I am not sure. My name is Mike Wilkinson. E-mail address : mwilk@dal.ca.
I am searching for a photograph from that time, but as I recall you were pretty tall, blonde hair. I was dark, and not tall. I think your friends were people like Ian Benn, and Mac (?). If I have the wrong guy, just ignore this rambling.

Hi Mike
You are right I was the tall guy with a stupid blonde haircut.
I have emailed you.
Regards
Trevor

I was at Central High School - 68 to 75 .. I have somewhere a 1974 copy of YORKSHIRE LIFE that has an article about the school prior to it becoming City Of Leeds School ... and there are loads of other gems in the mag that I am sure would be of interest. If people are interested I'll scan and post what I can ....
