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 CONTEST - SEE IF YOU CAN IDENTIFY HIM

I've been waiting for this photo for some time and here it is on a cold, snowy day. I've decided to make this a contest. Can you identify what darling KHS65-to-be was the Wonder Bread poster child in his youth? There are a few people who are NOT eligible to win this contest, initials DB & KMB come to mind but if you've seen this before at his house, you really should disqualify yourself! I will give one clue, he is someone who is named on this blog in at least one (or more) other post. I have NO idea what the prize will be but I'll think of something...I'm STILL unpacking from our recent move to Chesterfield, likely I'll find something I forgot I had that will be perfect! Email me with your entry. Let's see, Valentine's Day would be a good cut-off date. Actually, as I think about it, the name of the company who published this newsletter/magazine is a clue in itself to the identity of our cute little classmate...oh jeez, he'll throttle me for that description!!!
Enjoy and THANKS to our mystery boy for letting me use this, we just don't have THAT many child stars amongst us!

  1. Okay I cheated a bit, Dave Beardsley & I think also Ken McBride knew who this is but I sort of disqualified them thinking they'd already seen this. It's our own Viet Nam Vet, train buff par excellence, fab father and amazing husband of 40+ years, the one and only Bob O'Neill. He won a contest, or rather, I think his mom did, and he got to be the Wonder Bread poster boy. Is he just too cute or what?
