Tonight’s football game at Floyd County High School is also homecoming — the first homecoming I’ve attended since gradudating from FCHS in 1965. Although my purpose there is to photograph the event for The Floyd Press, I expect to spend some time visiting with old friends, including some I haven’t seen for 40 years.

We’ve been fulltime residents of the county for most of a year now but I still run into friends I haven’t seen since leaving the county so long ago. Some still live here. Others come to town for a visit. Some drop by The Jacksonville Center for a visit and realize the photographer with the studio is someone they knew in high school.

After 10 months, I suppose it’s time for a homecoming.
