I have not moved away from my home town, although moved to the other side of it, and 
I still see several old school friends regularly but not on any organised occasions, judt chance meetings mostly.

Most of my school days were in the Middle East so my old school friends are scattered all over the place. I still keep in touch with a few of them via email etc. and have met up with them over the years. I used to go and stay with one in particular every summer but sadly she died a couple of years back and that hit me quite badly.

There is also a group on Facebook of friends from the same school so plenty of reminiscing/photographs shared and there is also a reunion every year in a different UK venue. I've been to 3 or 4 of those.

On moving counties as a teen I made a close friend of another lad - we spent leisurely holidays in each others homes and then school leaving came and we seemed to drift apart - I heard he was heading south to work and I followed suit a year later in the same works place - but then other friends appeared on the scene and girls of course. I got married and he headed off to Canada to work and live. I lost touch but then heard that he had been killed in a head on car collision with a drunk driver. I had the chance to visit his grave a few years later and as I stood and looked at his gravestone all I could say was "ya a long way from home lad"

happy memories had turned sour and become sad ones if only we could predict the future and make side turns!
