We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Bev Schwarz Martin - Renaissance Woman

In August of 2006 Bev sent this interesting update on her interesting life. Check it out and at the end is a 2009 update. Go to http://www.khs65.com/ classmate photos to see some illustrations of her activities. "In June I went on a 4-day trail ride at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. This was the Crazy Horse Memorial Ride that honors that great leader. We began in Ft. Robinson, NE where Crazy Horse was killed. Rode 30-some miles the first day into Chadron where we camped. Rode from Chadron to Beaver Creek where Crazy Horse often camped. Rested a day and then finished the ride by coming into Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for the beginning of the Veterans Pow Wow. I stayed with the same family I had lived with for ten weeks when doing volunteer work at SuAnne Big Crows Boys & Girls Club. In July we went to Winston Salem, NC for our son's 6th annual Heavy Rebel Weekender - a band and antique car show. He and Dave Quick have put on this show for six years. This year there were over 70 bands playing during the 3 day event. My job was to check each person's ID as they came through the door. Then my son William left for Marine Boot Camp and John, my husband, left for Costa Rica. I managed our farm, learned how to operate an idustrial size walk-behind mower, and took a class in Navajo Weaving. I also am continuing to learn Lakota language. That about sums up what's been happening here in Millersburg, Missouri. Oh, did I mention that when it was 106 I rediscovered the joy of skinny dipping in our pond?! Nice thing about living out in the middle of nowhere - I can pretty much do what I want when I want! Here are some pictures" - see http://www.khs65.com/.

In March, 2009 Bev reported: "I just returned from meeting up with my hunka (adopted) Lakota family in Rapid City. John & I participated in a buffalo kill. Our combined families butchered 3 buffalo that were culled when the Sinte Gleske University had to cull its herd after losing some of their pastures they had needed for the herd. I've learned how to do Navajo weaving, Anglo spinning, dying my yarn using MO plants and am studyig the Lakota language."
Great talents and activities all in one half of a twin dynamo! Thanks Bev for sharing your life with your old pals! GO to www.khs65.com to see an article about Barb, Bev's "other half"...
