MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


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.”

SNIPPETS FROM CLASSMATES

I recently heard from classmate C. Diane Gaither West and want to share her greetings. She remarried 6 Jun 2008 and honeymooned in South Dakota! She retired in December, 2007, CONGRATS on all accounts! She met Jim in September, 2007 through an online private dating service! Way to GO Diane! Jim is a 6' 3" country boy, perfect for 6' Diane! He is a machinist who owns his own machine/welding shop across from their house (158 acre farm surrounded by deep woods with howling coyotes, wild deer, turkey buzzards, eagles, raccoons, opossums, foxes and other creepy crawlies and lovely birds. They grow corn...) Jim's brother who lives near Glacier National Park, MT farms the fields now as Jim, who is also an electrician, is busy with his shop and wiring their house, which he designed in 1990. And, I have to tell you what ELSE she said:
"For 40 years I looked for an old girlfriend; while reading your blog, there was her name..." It pays to Make KHS65 a HABIT! Thanks Diane for sharing...Diane lives in Iowa and can be found by sending us a message thru the website or the blog or email. So, you single guys and gals, try Diane's idea!
