High Desert Memories - A Hometown Journal Commemorating Ridgecrest California
 
 
Many of the members of the Burroughs Classes of the 50's  have a get-to-gether every year or so now.  These are called AG - 1, AG - II in order.  (AG = Arroyo Grande)   Last year there were some pictures taken but yours truly didn't get any of them.  This year thanks to the efforts of Rob Carr and his bride there will be a myriad of pictures available.  After some heroic efforts by some of the guests at this occasion, yours truly was able to put names to the faces in the pictures.
Isn't that just ducky???  My thanks to all of you who aided in this quest.

  Let the Greaser explain; in photo #1, Deem is telling the Greaser just how frightened she was of him during their school years, and that her mother forbade her to even speak to him...  In the 2nd photo  the Greaser is chuckling at her silliness, while she is giggling a sigh of relief...  The 3rd photo  shows the Greaser displaying shy embarrassment while Deem pecks him on the cheek, putting to rest all those fears of the past, and in defiance of her dear mother...  That's the story, and I'm sticking to it...!

   In posting things to this website I have to be careful about posting something that is sensitive to the folks out there in cyberland.  These three pictures were in the lot on the CD's I received and I thought them very cute and that they must hold a story.  I queried Jim about them and heres the result of that query!!
 
Hmmm, I have my own "Swift" (well, almost!) take on these pictures, as a corrective to Reverend Swami's, aka, Greaser, very possibly, hazy recollection of the aforementioned photos and the moments they represent.

As follows (viewing from left to right):
- Photo #1 depicts Diane's ardent plea for Swami to hear her confessional (notice her arm interlocked with his), while he, with his glowingly benign, compassionate smile considers her earnest entreaty.
  
- - Photo #2  shows blessed Swami and an ecstatic Diane sharing a subsequent moment of mutual fondness, as he, too, humbly admits to the attraction of memories of long ago earthly pleasures,
and youthful passion (and, still notice her arm interlocked with his)

Photo #3 portrays the relief of Diane following the revelation of her most innermost cravings and desires withheld all these passing years, as she bestows a beatific kiss upon the cheek of the most revered one.

Ah, Life lived to its fullest!

  So a scant three days after I post this story from the "Annointed One" which seemingly satisfactorily describes the activities in the above picture.    Comes this story from the hinterland which refutes not only the substance but also lays claim to a minor falsehood.  You be the judge.
