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.”

LINDA STEVENS, RN, CHECKS IN


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!
