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.”

NIFTY NEW SITE

I have had a membership to classmates.com for years, and it has been of value in helping spread the KHS65 word and reconnect with classmates. However in more recent years I've had better luck with other things and haven't used Classmates so much. One problem is that you never know if the person actually saw the message you sent them. Maybe they signed up and then lost interest and never went back to retrieve messages! Anyway, this morning I received an email stating that Classmates.com is now associated with MEMORY LANE. This is a new site to me, but I must say, it's a great resource. There are back issues of LIFE, Look and other national magazines, from the 1940s to 1990s for Life; Yearbooks (more than classmates.com used to have), videos, sports highlights, all sorts of great nostalgic and fun things. Since I am a member of classmates.com, when I log on they know it is me. I do not know what happens if a non-member logs on. I ASSUME it's a sales job of course, but there may be some good previews of what you'll get if you join. I tried going directly to MemoryLane.com but it just automatically points to http://www.classmates.com/. They do have yearbooks for KHS for years 59, 60, 62, 67 & 68. They also have Webster for 64 & 65 (having dated one fellow from each class, I was amazed that they didn't look a single bit like what I remembered, 'dated' is the operative word here, not torrid love affairs for sure! After all, they lived in WG!!!!) And Lindbergh 1965 and some other years are there too. Viewing the yearbook pages is a bit cumbersome, but better than nothing! Roam around a bit if you can. In the past I have contacted every KHS65 person on classmates.com and most have responded back, but there are a few holdouts. I figure I can always send them a message thru there if I really want to tell them something; I did this for our 45th Reunion news.
I'm not here to recommend one's buying a classmates.com membership, but if you already have one, by all means check it out now, and if you can get a preview, at least check it out. Might be very useful. The Life magazines are of use to me in another project, but I can't seem to print the pages from this site like I can others. Well, you can purchase a copy! Enjoy~!
