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.”

REASON #1 FOR NOT ATTENDING KHS65 REUNION

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE OFF FROM FLORIDA FOR STL & THE REUNION TODAY!
OBVIOUSLY I'M DOING SOMETHING ELSE.....

IN THIS PICTURE I'M SITTING ON OUR CONDO PATIO DECK IN DUNNELLON.
MO-INLAW SENT A CARE PKG DUE TO MY INJURY SO I'M DRAPED IN THE EASY
ON/OFF SHIRTS, HOLDING BOOK, ETC. ....I'D PLANNED TO INCLUDE THIS
PHOTO IN A TKU CARD TO HER, BUT IT'S ALSO USEFUL TO "SHOW" & "TELL"
MY STORY, ALBEIT ONE HANDED & IN ALL CAPS. I'VE ALSO FOUND
SLIP-ON-SHIRTS ARE GREAT - NOTE HUSBAND'S SOFT V-TEE SHIRT - AND SO
ARE PULL-UP PANTS......FORGET BUTTONS, MAKE-UP OR STYLING YOUR HAIR.
MAYBE I'M IN TRAINING FOR MY SENIOR YRS??? OPPS, THAT'S RIGHT, I'M
ALREADY THERE....ANOTHER SENIOR MOMENT.

I FELL & BROKE MY ELBOW; SUBSEQUENT SURGERY INCLUDED 2 SCREWS, 1
FIGURE 8 SPRING, & 18 STAPLES. I'M TO BE IN THIS SLING/HALF CAST FOR A
MONTH, THEN BRACE & PHYSICAL THERAPY 4-6 MONTHS. I KEEP HEARING THE
SONG IN MY HEAD, "IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME...".

I WILL MISS THE REUNION ON SEVERAL LEVELS! I'M GOING TO BE LOOKING
FORWARD TO ALL THE PICTURES YOU ALWAYS POST SO I CAN PRETEND I WENT.
TO ALL MY CLASSMATES, PICTURE ME THERE!

HAVE A GREAT TIME REMEMBERING OLD MEMORIES & CREATING NEW ONES,
GEORGANN


GET WELL QUICK GEORGANN!!! WHAT BAD TIMING!!! :-)
As Georgann pointed out to me, we need to include the pic of her hubby Steve Vehmeier, to honor his nearly 43 years of tending to her. He's nursed her back to health before, but wasn't expecting this! Check out the view of the WITHLACHOOCHEE River from their condo deck in Dunnellon! When I have time, I'll post some more photos of it, paradise on the west coast of Florida for SURE!
Georgann has sent me a big envelope of wonderful classmate photos and articles, which I will get posted as soon as I can, am running out of time to get ready for the reunion weekend! Thanks again Georgann!!!
