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 CELEBRATES ANOTHER BIRTHDAY


What a fun evening 2/5 sharing with Bob's family and friends as they surprised him with a great 65th birthday party at the Kirkwood American Legion Post 156 Steamboat Room. His sister drove in from New Jersey to surprise him~ he was also surprised by a slip on the ice and a broken arm! (It's all your fault Georgann, you started all these broken bones! My ribs are nearly well thankfully! Hope you are also repaired!) A special treat for the KHS65 crowd at last night's party was seeing Art Stout. He's aging of course, but getting around well. Back when Bob and CJ were married, many of Bob's pals were either off at college or off at war, so Art graciously served as one of Bob's groomsmen, pretty cool huh? Pat Moisio was there, aglow with Peter's latest news ~ a speaking engagment for the spring, and doing very well in his own apartment. Check out our other posts for information on her brother Peter who is a Down Syndrome success story!

Rox (Guels) and Jay Rassi are taking to the road. They leave next week for a few months in their new digs in Mesa, AZ. They will then return to a new home in Illinois northeast of here, closer to their children. We'll miss them right here in St. Louis County, but she promised to stay in touch electronically AND we're welcome to get in touch when in Arizona. Her email address & cell phone # are remaining the same. SO glad we got to see you guys last night Rox, and thanks again on the photorescue!

Darlene & Ken McBride joined the fun last night too as did Dave and Eileen Beardsley who are having another grandson in June! The guys seemed to be enjoying visiting with Art Stout. I enjoyed one of the three birthday cakes, two of which had edible pix of the birthday boy...one special picture from his childhood, the other a later portrait. Photos of him were spread around the dining room, and the festive streamers and balloons in red, white and blue set a nice patriotic ambiance for the evening. GREAT food too!!! If ya gotta have birthdays, doing it this way is a good thing! Thanks for including us CJ, and take care of that guy's arm!!!

Check out the website, http://www.khs65.com/; in addition to 13 pix from last night's party, I've finished posting all the elementary school pix I had in my "to do" stack. There are many missing names though, so I hope everyone will take a look and email names to me. The comment utility on the website is still down, haven't had time to delve into what sort of solution I can find to the spam problem on that site. All the pix from last night are posted in the top album, and many more in the Elementary School Pix album. You can SEE earlier comments, you just can't ADD comments! So please email me your identifications of our classmates.
