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.”

Anyone remember who owned Cyrano's?

I have no idea why I noticed this obituary earlier this week, but John B. Marshall, Jr. died in Sun City, AZ recently. He was a Marine Corps fighter pilot who served in WWII and Korea. After leaving service he founded and operated the High Fidelity Showroom, Cyrano's Restaurant and Restaurant de Bergerac. He was also active in the promotion of individual liberty and free market philosophy. In the 1960s he hosted a monthly lecture group on Ayn Rand's objectivist philosophy and he was a long time board member of The Discussion Club of St. Louis. He has a son Joseph living here in Chesterfield, a daughter in Fairfax, VA and grand children. Whodda ever thunk that the fellow running one of our favorite haunts was also an intellectual???
For a picture of the Cyrano's menu, check out the photos on the website at http://www.khs65.com, it's a great shot! Thanks again to Rich Mills for sending me that onceuponatime when he moved and was cleaning out STUFF.
