Reminders that I'm getting old

Rendez-Vous Houston happened 25 years ago today. I remember sitting out with my family on Allen Parkway with hundreds of thousands of other people to watch the spectacular laser and fireworks show. Although I've seen many rather impressive pyrotechnics displays since then, I can honestly say that I've never seen anything quite like Jean-Michel Jarre's concert and light show in terms of its complexity, its duration and its downright awesomeness. J. R. Gonzales has more retrospective.

But twenty-five years ago? Wow.

Oh, and my twenty-year high school reunion? It's a week from this Saturday.
