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.”

JIM DAY CHECKS IN WITH KHS65

WOW, with Classmates.com, the KHS alumni commercial sites and good old Facebook, communicating is getting easier & easier. But nothing beats the good old MA BELL way. It was so good to hear Jim Day's voice yesterday. I was amazed at a few things he told me. We had a good chat about that favorite subject of mine, connections and classmates, you know, the old 6 degress of separation which in many of our lives in Kirkwood is only 1 or 2! Jim recently ran in to Mary Jane Fuchs, looking great as always. The amazing part is that her son is coaching his grandson in hockey... of course they are hockey superstars!!! I didn't realize (how the heck did I miss THIS?) that his #3 son, Adam, is the hockey coach at KHS! Three of Jim and Linda's boys went through the KHS hockey program, going to 3 state championships! Adam was coach at Vianney for 3 years until he was stolen by KHS. Jim said it so well, after all his boys benefitted from their KHS experiences, now Adam can give back. What a special way to think of it! Jim and Linda had 4 boys go through KHS and now, this will blow your minds, they have TEN grandkids in the Kirkwood schools. I think this must be some sort of record - sure deserves an award! And there's more, they have a farm in Owensville and within 1 mile of them are 14 Kirkwood families, three of which are from Craig Woods. AMAZING. This is but one of the best benefits of staying for a lifetime in one place - our life long friendships and relationships!

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!
