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.”

STL250 KIRKWOOD CAKE AND VISITING KIRKWOOD

This past Saturday after a day of Memorial Day activities I retrieved my car from Helen Fitzgerald's Restaurant just south of Watson Road and headed up north on Lindbergh toward home.  I stopped first at the Kirkwood Train Station to photo the STL250 birthday cake.  If you don't know about them, go to www.stl250.org.  They are large fiberglass cakes celebrating St. Louis' 250th birthday and the place at which they are located.  You can see the list of all 250 cakes with their locations listed at the above website.  I got a parking space right in front and  spotted a young man photo'ing his son, so he agreed to photo me.  I love the picture of his son, he jumped right up and assumed the Statue of Liberty stance immediately.  His shirt of course adds to the photo!  I then took a picture of him and his dad with their cameraphone.  There was not as much traffic Saturday as I expected to see, so I had a nice drive home, heading from the Train Station east to Taylor and over Taylor to Manchester.  I must say, I am sure I have never seen that route looking more beautiful than it did Saturday.  It seemed liked EVERY lawn was manicured, flowering plants in wild bloom, many homes adorned with flags and banners, it was noticeably more beautiful than ever!  I hope you enjoy the pix...  NEXT on my list is to meet Dave B and Bob O, along with my son, and take our pix at the cake at the MO Transport Museum... getting all 4 of us in the same place at the same time might be tricky, but I'm hellbent to do it - 
This cake was sponsored by Bethesda Health Group, which has a large nursing home/assisted living facility in Kirkwood.
