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.”

Dave Beardsley, musician - & his KHS souvenirs

I've decided to do some Featured Student frames, and my first 'honoree' is going to be Dave Beardsley. Dave and I didn't know one another well at KHS, but we've become friends thru our reunion activities. We had a mutual friend in our class in later years who has since died, thus giving us something more in common. Dave is a man of many interests and talents and generous with his memories and his memorabilia - any time I ask he shares. Mind you, he's not the ONLY generous person in KHS65, but certainly a faithful one. In June when some of us trekked to Jefferson City for lunch, as Dave drove I went through some boxes of 'stuff' I found - fodder for blogging about our past for YEARS to come! Additionally Dave brought along some 'stuff' - nothing I already had in our archives! Dave's musicianship garnered different souvenirs of KHS than others might have, we all have our souvenirs don't we? So, I'm going to share some of Dave's that he graciously has lent me. I will probably put some on the website too...Dave & I both certainly invite and request your comments here and on the website, a great way to let people know YOUR thoughts about the past.

Dave was a member of the Nipher Band and KHS Orchestra, a DeMolay member and of all things, a congregant, and President of the Senior High Youth Group, at Delmar Baptist Church. My jaw dropped when I learned that - my parents lived in the Central West End as young marrieds when they came here for dad's career with McDonnell Aircraft Corp. and they attended that church even after we moved, my first Sunday School experience. My mother was the grand-daughter, sister, niece and grand-niece of Southern Baptist ministers. Here are some of the souvenirs of Dave's life. PLEASE VISIT THESE LINKS, THERE ARE MANY MANY KHS65 MEMBERS' NAMES AND ROLES IN OUR KHS65 EXPERIENCE TO BE FOUND IN THESE DOCUMENTS. SORRY DAVE, THIS ISN'T ALL ABOUT YOU!
