Yamato Reunion 2009

Chapter 11

"Candid Shots"

On the video above are some candid shots, which clearly shows how much love and affection there is between fellow Warriors. When you go to a Yamato reunion…..you won’t meet a stranger….

Many thanks to all of you who posted your reunion photos on facebook….which enabled me to grab them for the slideshows. A very special thank you to Jim Ranes ‘62, who mailed me a CD with all of the photos, he took with his incredible camera.

When I viewed the CD that Jim sent me, I noticed a photo of Bob & Chrysta Layne, and wondered how I could miss seeing them at the reunion. Thinking that I must be losing it, I decided to e-mail Bob & Chrysta. Chrysta e-mailed be back and explained that they were in Vegas for a Keno tournament and met with Jim on Thursday. They left for home the following day….when the reunion started. Boy….was I relieved to know that I have not lost my mind YET!

I am trying hard to get all of the 2009 photos posted, hoping to get everyone excited about the 2011 reunion coming soon. I got excited just doing the videos! Just two more videos and I am finished!

Ebb Tide Lyrics

Righteous Brothers


First the tide rushes in

Plants a kiss on the shore

Then rolls out to sea

And the sea is very still once more

So I rush to your side

Like the oncoming tide

With one burning thought

Will your arms open wide

At last we're face to face

And as we kiss through an embrace

I can tell, I can feel

You are love, your are real

Really mine in the rain

In the dark, in the sun

Like the tide at its ebb

I'm at peace in the web of your arms
