50th reunions coming up and a PenPal

In June I am going to my 50th high school reunion at Fieldston and my 46th 8th grade reunion at Dalton School that is called a 50th since at that time Dalton high school was for girls only so its our 46th and their 50th (should it be called the 48th?). I've never been to any reunions so this should be interesting if not a bit scary.

Yesterday I got a letter in the mail from a current 4th grader named Alex, class of '14. Apparently his class decided to have a pen pal project with our class. I've written him back already and sent a modern picture of me as well as a bigger version of this LJ icon that was taken when I taught 7th and 8th grade Science for one year when I was a graduate student at Columbia. I hope my other classmates all respond, too.

Jimmy NeutronHis letter was a nice chatty letter: he has no pets, and wants a snake as a pet; his favorite food is pizza; he likes to play baseball, soccer, and tennis, and his favorite cartoons are Jimmy Neutron - boy genius and Tom & Jerry (I didn't know they still were around).
