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.”

OLD FRIENDS COME BACK IN SPADES

When we were in grade school my family went for a visit, Thanksgiving I believe, to my paternal grandparents' home in Westfield, NJ. While there I went to school with the girl who lived across the street. She and I had become pals during our visits. I had a great time and was surprised how well I was welcomed. Anyway, in more recent times I was looking to reconnect with Carolyn, that friend, while I was working on my grandfather's diary transcription because her family is mentioned therein often. In the process I googled around and found Nancy who is the reunion/alumni guru of their 1965 graduating class (and found Carolyn) and now Nancy and I correspond on reunion topics. Today she sent me the following message which I'd like to share to illustrate what a great thing can happen when we just start looking for someone! We never know what influence we might have on someone else's efforts. Thanks Nancy for sharing. I've learned from Nancy too! And of course, I appreciate her kind words. I am guilty of getting busy and NOT updating often enough, I'm behind right now back to OCTOBER news! But I do try to keep it current. I promise to try to be better - one of my favorite KHS65 members mentioned just last night that I'm not posting very often, MY bad!

Hi Leslie,     It's Nancy here from Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School in Scotch Plains, NJ wishing to THANK YOU for printing these 'Oldies AND Goodies' memories!  Made me laugh to see my name on your website!   Funsie!!!    Well, I'm finally 'catching up' to your way of thinking by eliminating individually e-mailing 420 Classmates (in 8 groups) every time there's "New News" to share with a SPFHS '65 WEBSITE!!!  When I got my FIRST computer 4 years ago (Love that Apple) and knew NOTHING, it only occurred to me to "bring the news to the classmates" as I didn't think they would go to a website to see or read it, and, now I see, the time has come...to "bring the classmates to the website"!    Any ideas on website creation that allow lots of flexibility - free or otherwise?  Who designed yours?   It's MAGNIFICENT the way you constantly update everything and post the dates and times and slideshows! Quite organized and impressive!!!   A GREAT memento for future generations! I'm now up for the challenge!!!   Bring it on!!!    THANKS soooo much for your 'everything', Leslie! Luv, Nancy
