KHS65 TURNS 65 PARTY GREAT SUCCESS
Today dawned a bit overcast but turned sunny as we gathered at the Scout Pavillion at Kirkwood Park. I was a tad late but there was steadfast Bill Bailey cooking brats and burgers in his great style as I arrived. Fixin's were all delicious and crisp, fruit salad, potato salad, chips accompanied by soda, beer and bottled water. The best part was a scrumptious chocolate sheet cake with nice thick icing and a yummy white cake with a pudding interior layer. Can it get any better than this??? The winds picked up just a tad, but the weather held. I imagine today was the prettiest fall color day of the season; if we get the winds and storms forecast for tonight, we might lose a lot of those pretty leaves!
So who was at the picnic that wasn't at the Friday night gathering? Alice Bywater, Steve & Susan Huber (above), Sandy Smith Lawson, Jim and Linda Girard Day with a couple really really cute grands, Ken McBride, Jeanne DeBolt North, Bill Watts was back with another really really cute grand-daughter, Rick Whelove from Columbia, Doug Birk, Marilyn Pape Roberts, Steve Hampe & a lovely lady Wife?, Rev. Dr. Kurt Calkins & lovely wife Ann (he has recently retired), Les & Nelson Wainwright fresh from an African Safari and a week in England, Lee & Karen Walters, decked out in great black & gold Mizzou duds and again if I forgot someone, forgive me. Thanks to Karen Adams and the committee for a great weekend, and to Karen for the pix below. And a couple I swiped from Becky Emrich's Facebook page!
The Calkins laughing at my comment as I was ready to attack the killer birthday cake and said, "Life is short, eat dessert first", a favorite saying of mine; seconds after this pic was shot, I was indeed eating a piece of the GREAT cake, before eating my lunch. And it was soooo good I had a piece AFTER my lunch too!!!! Worth every single little calorie!
Did I say the above pic is Linda Girard Day, Alice Bywater, Jack Toman and Skip Moon?
And three of my grade school buds, Linda Girard Day, Tim Lapping from Texas, and Larry Gibbons, formerly of Texas...seems just like yesterday we were running around the sidewalks of Couch Avenue!
Left to right Leslie Bright Wainwright, Marilyn Pape Roberts, & 2 I can't ID, Bill Bailey, Larry G and Polly Burtch.
Skip Moon and Kathy O'Neil Lang here from the Kansas City area and Texas!

Here are Skip, Bill & Kathy O'Neil Lang
Bill Pottgen checked in this morning, he & Cindy just couldn't get here but sent greetings to all. Pat Corpening Hoag is in Chicago meeting their newest grandson, probably more fun that being with us old fogies! Ric Porte wanted to be with us but at the last minute he couldn't get in from KC. Actually if the bad weather did what was forecast, he was probably safer at home, but we missed him. He's recently sent me all of his and sis Janet's (KHS64) grade school pix for posting. I just realized, as I went to think about getting photos posted, that the spammers have attacked our KHS65 website again. I am going to have to turn off the comments, and really get serious about finding a different way to post all those photos. UGH! Please hang in there, I'll have more photos from this weekend to post on the website soon. www.khs65.com
