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.”

TIDBITS FROM OUR PAST at KHS

Thanks to Pat Corpening Hoag we still have access to a KHS Handbook, herewith a couple of entries:

SCHOOL DRESS & GROOMING
One of the things that has a definite effect on the quality of your schoolwork and behavior is the manner in which you dress. The well-dressed student is encouraged toward better schoolwork and behavior. The carelessly dressed student tends to do the opposite. You should be neat, clean and well-groomed at all times. You should use standards of good taste in usual school dress. Shirts must be buttoned up at all times, and the tail of dress shirts must be worn inside the trousers. Students who wear costumes which are abbreviated, suggestive, or otherwise improper, or who wear unusual haircuts will be dismissed until correction is made. GIRLS: Dresses, skirts, and casual shoes. No divided skirts. BOYS: Long pants with shirts or sweaters. Gee, divided skirts made so much sense, wonder who determined this policy?

I don't know about you all, but living with the minute by minute Bell Schedule must have been more annoying than I remember. In my elder years, not sure I could do this again!
