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.”

KHS65 CELEBRATES 45 YEARS - 6/10/65

Or is the right word laments? So many of our classmates say the same thing to me, over and over, "How did this happen?"..... the time seems to have flown by. But then, when we think back year by year, or happening by happening, or child by child or in some other way, it certainly has been a long time, not so fleeting! Each of us has our individual life to review whenever and however our habit is. But as a group, we have a shared past! No, it wasn't just yesterday that one played football, ran track, babysat for neighbor kids as the Beatles debuted on Sullivan, wrote for the "Call", drove a convertible through the streets of Kirkwood, or WHATEVER.... it was really 45 years ago! The day was warm and sunny; the Class Flower Yellow Rose, a timeless symbol of friendship. We ate at the Jefferson Hotel, swam at Cool Dell... drank at................. and breakfasted at Teutenberg's. Well some of us did anyway. What are YOUR memories of 45 years ago ??? Go to the comments utility and share your memories. And while we're at reminiscing, think of how you knew those of the class who are no longer with us. Keep them in our hearts. And our blessings and prayers to those in poor health, our wishes for good medical care and hopefully recovery.

Girls, what did you WEAR??? My swimsuit matched my dress! White cotton pique with pale blue piping. My mom was such a clotheshorse, and she superimposed her will on me...thankfully as it turns out!

Paul Silman is off to a 3 day golf jaunt as I type, his birthday is today (the 9th) so he's celebrating on the links. Several of us are lunching together Friday in Jefferson City...a diverse and interesting group put together by Ken McBride who lives in Chesterfield but works in Jeff City during the workweek. Ken loves to put interesting groups of folks together and see what develops. Pat Moisio, Dave Beardsley, Bob O'Neill and I are driving together...wonder who will talk the most! Check back early next week for a report on this event!

Spend some time on Thursday, maybe over a cup of tea or a glass of vino, thinking about the day, or the time in between, and be happy we had our great beginnings and now our shared history. Graduation day was a Thursday too...

I'm curious to learn what comes to your mind when looking at the photo of OUR day. It has just occurred to me, look at that sea of white compared to the lake of red! No wonder our social setting was what it was!!! Too many girls, not enough BOYS!!! LOOK WHAT ELSE I JUST FOUND! It's Thursday evening, I put my hand into a box of KHS65 "stuff" and pulled out ONE thing, it happened to be the Kirkwood Public Schools newsletter for June, 1965. Check it out here, we're the top news!

Happy Memories to you, or as Roy and Dale would say, "Happy Trails to You".

PS: I am not at liberty to discuss WHO, but more than one member of KHS65 was nominated for the Kirkwood High School Alumni Hall of Fame! I was thrilled to see that our classmates were honored, and also that some classmates participated by nominating others!~ There are SO many amazing KHS graduates! Well, we ALL are in my opinion....thank you to all who participated!
