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.”

Words of Wisdom at this time in our lives

In cleaning up my office I found this and just had to share it, it's soooo US!

In Memoriam

I have just learned today of the death of Mike Trueblood's mom, and learned that Cathy Modray Guirl's husband died suddenly earlier this month. Just yesterday I also learned that Linda Stevens' dad, about whom you will read if you go to the older posts, has also recently passed away. These wonderful folks will all be missed I know and we send our condolences to these great families. You can go here to see the obit for Mike's mom.

If anyone has information about these that they'd like to share, please either email me or comment here. May they rest in peace and love.

KIRKWOOD MUSINGS

Well folks, I'm always saying I'm behind, and so nothing changes. I have posts on visiting Jake's old store, in its new life as a great restaurant, the story of Craig and Lee Conway's wedding in October, Ken McBride's dinner party in November, the adventure on which Bob O'Neill's bride has just embarked, and probably more if I look around my desk and the floorspace all around my office! For this minute, I wanted to share the link where we can go vote for our favorite St. Louis restaurants, bars, and other manner of eateries. There are a good number of Kirkwood and closeby restaurants on the first round. PJs is in the running, they treat us sooo well, we should all go vote for them for sure! Besides, their food is killer good. Some of us indulge in their yummy fries a bit too often. Stay tuned, more coming soon.
