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.”

Bob O'Neill Rides a Wheel of Fame

Check out our own Bob O'Neill, a man of oh so many talents and interests. Go here to see his latest adventure. I tried to get over there, but just couldn't finish elsewhere in time. Sorry Bob I wanted to see it! Is it still up somewhere? Let me know where if so!
I love it when our KHS65 pals make the papers! Congrats Bob for the PR and for the wonderful project. Do you know what they teach budding mechanical engineers at MIT? You guessed it, a class on building with LEGOS the modern Erector Set!!!! Seems like one could go a much simpler route to learn to play with plastic blocks...I guess it's probably more involved than "playing with plastic blocks" when it's THERE!
It took Bob nearly 9 years to find all the parts to build this 1927 Ferris Wheel. Talk about sticktoitiveness!
