Hi everybody, Happy New Year!
I love hearing from old friends! Because of my physical disabilities, my activities are limited butI always seem to find things to do. I'm still busy with my genealogical research. I always get these crazy ideas. Several years ago I decided I wanted to learn to play the bass guitar and so taught myself. This year I decided that I wanted to learn to play the drums! Fortunately, the drum shop is right down the street from me. I bought a starter set of drums and then traded up to a better set. You would really get a kick out of the expressions on the faces of the young kids waiting for their lessons when this old chick comes walking out of the practice room. I told my instructor that if I keep up the lessons that they are going to have to add a handicap entrance for old people :D I really enjoy it. Now if just had an extra arm and leg. Maybe the lessons would be easier! I have a breeding pair of canaries, although they have only produced 1 live chick. Then they decided that they wouldn't feed him. So rather than letting him die, I started feeding him every 2 hours for weeks. He turned out to be an amazing, fun little guy. I can't bare to keep him in his cage, so he pretty much has the free run of the house! Here is little Eddie on DAY 1.
Wonder where his name came from, he was born on my dad's birthday and yes, my dad's name is Edward.
The other thing I decided to do was learn American Sign Language. I'm doing well.
Have a great year everybody!

Speaking of classmates, here is a note of this morning from Ron Persons, a Robinson & Nipherite:
I don't know how to blog, so I will let you know my latest. (I am lost without my daughters.) I mentioned in my last email that I am single now after 36 years of marriage. In grade school to sophomore year I lived on George Street near Woodbine. Thebies Store was across the street. My parents moved to Clinton Ave. during my junior year at KHS. My family and Jim Persons [Ron's uncle & our classmate] now live in Florida. I live in Pensacola. When I retire I will move to Tampa where my kids and future grandchildren will be. Jim lives near Ft. Lauderdale. I have been a sales engineer for 37 years and am looking forward to retiring. I will probably not make the reunion but am looking forward to the next one. Hope to see my KHS friends soon, Ron Persons
Thanks Ron for getting in touch! Hope many of you will get in touch! Send heat to St. Louis!
