Paving the Way, BUY A BRICK. One can order a personalized brick to recognize a special student, graduate, family, teacher or business. Each brick becomes a part of the KHS campus. You can visit http://www.kirkwoodfoundation.org/ to buy your brick. I hope many of you will consider this as a way to help KHS and maybe honor someone in your circle! Remember, in our lives we don't have to go all the way to that 6th ring to find someone! PLEASE SEE WWW.KHS65.COM FOR CAMPUS PIX TAKEN DURING OUR REUNION WEEKEND; HERE ARE PIX OF THE BRICKS AS WELL AS UP TO THE MINUTE PHOTOS OF THE NEW TRACK & FOOTBALL FIELD AS OF THIS SUMMER. The 45th reunion pix are all in the 2010 album.
KIRKWOOD'S WINNING TEAM Academics & Athletics
And speaking of communicating, I've given in and friended all of those who have kindly asked me to be their friends on Facebook, but I will be honest, I really don't have time to 'work' Facebook. It's way too 'in your face' for me. I keep hearing from people I don't know, finding pix of me that I hate, and so on and so on... so I hope you will follow us here at our own private KHS version of social networking! Send news and pix, send whatever you want. If you don't want it published, don't worry, I will honor your wish! Come reconnect big time IN THE FLESH at our summer reunioin! Jim and Linda will be there! THANKX for the call Jim!

Hope your Christmas holidays are great!

If anyone wishes to contact Tim directly, please let me know and I will give you his address, he is stickin' to his guns, no email! BE SURE TO OPEN THE POEM LINK AS THERE IS A PICTURE OF KATHI THERE TOO AND GO TO OLDER POSTS FOR AN EARLIER POST ABOUT KATHI.
Back to autographs, most of which are dated for extra fun. Sadly, all the adults who signed whom I know what happened to are gone, with the exception of the Lowe twins' parents (who signed my book too) who are still in their home on Horseshoe Drive and doing well.
Karen Lowe - Sue (I think she was having an identity crisis, we used to claim different names from time to time!)
Allison Rose (A Sugar Creek Ranch neighbor who moved away, I remember they used to vacation in Florida, she sent post cards!)
12/28/56 Vicki Warburton - anyone remember her? I really do NOT!
1/3/57 (although I wrote 56 - see, it starts young, those habit things)
A HUGE signature in red pencil Jack P T - his personality was already formed...it's the largest signature in the book!
Anne Karin Smith + Nina Smith, her little sister - they lived right down Geyer Road from Lynn and had a wonderful older all brick two story home, which even then I coveted! I thought the Smith's house was just really the tops, except Lynn's, my real favorite! The Smiths moved pretty early on as I remember. Anne had very light blonde hair, very fair complected.
Harriette H[owell] who lived in Greenbriar. Once at Camp Cedarledge we gave her a green Coke bottle full of creekwater & tadpoles...she was thirsty and drank! Was she ever mortified when she found out!!!
Linda Girard & Sandra Klefler - two who have stayed all these years
Sandy Melton - another who left
Janet Wineman & Mary Clifton, two more who didn't go on with us (Janet's address is found on a slip of paper in the book in her handwriting - Miss Janet Wineman, C/o Alexander, 508 Elm St., Braintree, 84, MA)
[the late] Linda Marshall - another neighbor on Horseshoe Drive, next door to the Lowes
Linda English, next door neighbor of Linda Marshall
Sandra Lynn Schneider & her step-dad Bill Diebel
Gail Sutton, whose family went to my church and they moved away
Peggy Jackson, seems she had dark auburn hair, I barely remember her do you?
Jody Morelock, who lived in Craig Woods and moved away; her name was mentioned recently I think on our website maybe? I think she's in a class pic there, and word is that she was a girlfriend of Mike Caldwell onceuponatime!
The late Wayne Stine
Becky Smith, another who moved elsewhere
Kathy Watts, what a doll she was, cute, dark short, bouncy hair. She moved too..
And here's Peggy Jackson again
And here is Sharon Lowe again who says "From your BEST friend", and here's her poem -
"Roses are red, violets are blue, the holes in your head I can see right through!" This is only ONE of this type of poem - they are all so funny, and amazingly at this early age, a LOT are about boyz n girlz stuff! We girls sure got boy crazy early! Hmmm seems I remember that a bit!
Butch Goodrich, another of our pals who moved before KHS, signed several times, all on undated pages. This one is of interest, Butch Goodrich & Linda Wagner.
Here's another crack up - undated, "Scott Heuer & Harriette (I hope)" - he was referring to Harriette Howell. Funny, in later life Scott lived just a few houses down from the Howell's house on Big Bend in Greenbriar.
Another from Butch, "To a real nice girl sometimes"
And another undated, Mrs. Ruth Kreinkamp, our school nurse. Her son Steve who graduated 4 or 5 years ahead of us, owns a large antiques mall on Interstate 70 at Kingdom City. A few years ago I stopped in on my way home from Columbia and had my car, with KHS65 license plate, parked right by the front door. A couple of minutes after I started looking down the aisles, over the loudspeaker came "Would the owner of the car with KHS65 MO license plates please come to the front desk?" I figured I dropped something or???? Anyway, it was Steve wanting to know who was in his store from Kirkwood. He was very surprised I remembered his mom from Robinson School!! hmm, a bit further on is Mrs. K's signature again, dated 3/26/59 - I must have been in the nurse's office trying to get out of GYM.....
Another undated, Paul Halwe on whom I had a huge crush! There are other entries, the crush was mutual!
"The boy who traded reports with you, Roger Little" wonder what that was all about????
Sue Kraft signed with a funny poem
and 2/6/59 Linda English with such foresight:
"Roses are red, violets are blue, your face looks like leather, straight from a shoe"
Gee, we were creative little kids weren't we???
Out of order on the last page, 11/30/57:
"Now I lay me down to sleep, the old Ford car parked in the street If it should start before I wake, I pray the Lord slam on the brake. From Nancy Pease." I do not remember her or her name at all. Funny though, I had some good friends with that surname in later life. Neither of them had children, but they had some cousins who lived in Kirkwood.... hmmm....
