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.”

ARCADIA BOOK ON SUNSET HILLS

Many of us Kirkwoodians have connections of one sort or another to Sunset Hills, even if we only danced the nights away at "Sunset"!  My good friend Sandie Grassino, a retired history teacher, has written a great Arcadia book for Sunset Hills.  It's a must have if you have interest in Sunset Hills.  You can order it quickly and efficiently at www.arcadiapublishing.com a wonderful company which publishes all sorts of books on all sorts of locations.  I own many!  They are basically stories of cities, towns, parks, cemeteries, etc. told through old photographs with descriptive captions.  You can go to the list, check Missouri, then select Sunset Hills.  ISBN is 13:978 0 7385 8408 9, just published this summer.  ENJOY!  Kudos to Sandie, and also, if you have interest in Jefferson Barracks, she has written one on that subject too, equally as good as Sunset Hills!  And for those of you with ties to Sainte Genevieve, there is a great one for that beautiful city also!
Happy Reading!
