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.”

BOB CASSILLY, Vianney68, FOUND DEAD TODAY AT 61

9/29/11 Go here to read the latest from the St. Louis Post Dispatch about Bob. There are a number of articles, and note there is a public service on SATURDAY 10/1 at The Sheldon.

Sculptor and City Museum founder and leader Bob Cassilly was found dead in a bulldozer today at the site of his new "Cementland" in North St. Louis. The 'dozer had rolled down a hill sideways and he was not wearing a seatbelt; it's being called an accident on the TV news. Bob was a well-loved St. Louis figure of our generation. Born in 1949, he grew up in Kirkwood and graduated in 1968 from Vianney. Watch the St. Louis Post, Facebook, and The Beacon newspaper for more news. I'm sure he'll be featured in Riverfront Times and Webster-Kirkwood Times also. There is a Facebook page to remember him, it is
here. If you're interested watch tonight's news around our area, and the Internet. His sculpture is also found in Dallas, Brooklyn, NY, Virginia and San Diego to name some other places. Here we see the turtles along highway 40 as we head eastward and of course the City Museum is his main site. Cementland has been under construction for 10 years up on Riverview Blvd. Bob was trained as a sculptor, and graduated from Fontbonne. St. Louis will be less without him.
