I received two pictures from Walter Little today that Deb Matherne took of Dickie Matherne, Phillip Doiron, and Walter (on right top photo) at Lake Logan Martin after their mini-re-reunion dinner last Saturday evening. They were there to reconnect with an old friend, Barry Brasher (on left bottom photo), a friend of Dickie and Debra’s from a long time ago, and more recently a neighbor and fishing buddy of Walters. They were able to come and meet up with the Mathernes again outside Birmingham, Alabama.
(Barry had once mentioned a really nice guy he had worked with who was named Dickie Matherne and whom Barry thought was from somewhere in Mississippi. I replied that there could only be one Dickie Matherne, and although I couldn't’t prove it until Dickie furnished his E-address through our Class of 1959 blog and I was right.)
Walter said that none of this would have happened if our 50th class reunion had not brought all of us back together so closely, and the reunion would not have furnished such an occasion if it had not been for our blog.
This was also the view (minus the three/four of us :0) from the living room in the Matherne's very nice travel trailer that they drove down for the weekend. (Courtesy of Dickie & Debra Matherne)
