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.”

NIPHER GETTING A FACELIFT

Interestingly there has been money left over (an oxymoron in my life) from last fall's bond issue which will allow improvements at Nipher to include new track & field space and improvements in roadways around the school. Check out the details here. If you haven't been home in awhile you'd hardly recognize the front as a large addition was set in front of the North and South buildings. The campus is lovely, and oh so many memories flood my brain when I drive by. Do you remember your locker combination? Mine was in the North Building, 29 6 14, rlr. Pat Vallar was my locker partner...wonder if she remembers the combination! 12/26/1 - just reviewing my blog and realize this statement is an error, I don't think we had locker partners at Nipher, the locker next to mine was occupied by Susan Trail, I think perhaps Pat Vallar and I shared our KHS locker. And no, I do not know that combination! I shared a locker in a more convenient spot (among the boys of KHS64) with my beau thru some of KHS, Jim Jackson, so I didn't really burn the combination to my own into my brain like at Nipher!
