Nothing like this ever happened on Harris Mill Road. Not that anyone can recall, not that anyone can imagine. So you might wonder how Bob Miller felt when his sister-in-law drove up the lane last Tuesday night to tell him about the police officer in the road. His road. Bob's road. Harris Mill Road.It's way out there, a narrow two-lane that stretches through the northern Maryland countryside, five miles from Parkton on the way to Pennsylvania. Way out. With heavily wooded ravines on both sides, and a stream nearby.

Tooling along on a Harley Sprint motorcycle in June 1972, Bob Miller alternated between taking main roads and riding alongside the railroad next to the swollen Patapsco River as he wove his way from Sykesville to Elkridge, filming scene after scene of destruction in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Agnes. As a lifelong resident of the area dubbed "The Hill," where homes sit high above the Patapsco and Historic Main Street in Ellicott City, Miller took the 25-mile trip out of curiosity and as a way to merge his two loves, motorcycle riding and amateur filmmaking.

My father made iron things - tooth gears and turnbuckles, flanges and valves - thousands of cast-iron parts for machines and manufacturing systems in dozens of factories during the height of post-World War II industrial production. He and his band of foundry brothers took pride in all that. It was hot, dirty and heavy labor, but every foundry man I knew took a moment now and then to admire a perfectly cast, clean-grinded widget needed for a growing American economy. Of course, most of those cast-iron things are probably gone now. A lot of the machinery for which my father made parts became obsolete.

First I spotted Jake Oliver on the grass. Then Bob Miller spotted me. Then there was Quinton Pinkney, and then Victor Lieberman and Jim Gilliam and Dutch Ruppersberger and Tom Duley.The world moves too quickly now. You spend years going to school with the same people and assuming they'll always be within reach and then, poof! Where does everybody go? Somebody hands out adulthood papers, and immediately people commence to vanish.And you want to grab them to slow things down, to figure out what's happened to all our lives, and to find out if things actually happened back there the way we thought they did.So we had this reunion Saturday night: Class of '63, City College, 30 years after the fact.
