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.”

CLASSMATE NEWS & MORE

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It's cold here in the Kirkwood area today; hope everyone is warm and snug wherever you may find yourself! I'm still trying to figure out the various details of how the blog works, and want to say that if you sign up for POSTS at the bottom of the front page, you'll at least know when someone adds a comment. And I THINK you receive a notice when a new POST is added. Working on 3 blogs right now, and trying to get them all 3 to work just right!!!

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!
