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.”

DOROTHY HUNTER TURNS 107 - ROBINSON SCHOOL TEACHER OF OUR ERA

I have to say, when Karen Lowe Adams called me one day last week and said that Dorothy Hunter was on TV because she was 107 years old I almost fell out of my chair!  I had NO idea she was still living.  As many of you know, I often drive home from anywhere east of my house in Chesterfield through Kirkwood, and I often go down Geyer Road and past the Hunter's home near the corner of Geyer and Essex.  She was my third grade teacher along with 29 of my good friends!  And our Robinson Principal, Miss Dorothy Backus, lived with the Hunters.  I had NO idea Mrs. Hunter lived there as recently as 10 years ago!!!  I would have stopped in!  It is amazing how many of us are still right here in St. Louis County and in touch with one another.  Check out this article from Kirkwood Webster Times then check my personal Facebook Page for the link to the TV broadcast.  I have also posted our Third Grade photo on my personal Facebook Page.  You'll recognize plenty of the kids I'm sure!  hunter1 I was looking at this class photo recently and couldn't remember who the girl in the 2nd row between Lydia Flanigan and Susan Hayes was, she moved away.  Later I was looking at the photo again and "Nancy Jeffries" popped into my head...do we think maybe that is the name of the gal who moved?? Or did I dream that up ???
Do you know all the names?
front:  Susan & Sharon Merritt, Karen & Sharon Lowe in that order
2nd row:  Jamie Linton, Anne Smith, moi, Lydia, Nancy, Susan, Allison Rose (moved away, lived in Sugar Creek Rance w/ me & the Lowes), Mattie Hall, my first friend at school, in 2nd grade the year before.
3rd row:  Jeannette Klein, Jody Morelock, Ricky Kohler, Reid Bartleson, Charlie Stevenson, Bobby Vogt, Doug Hayman, Scott Heuer, Danny Butler, moved, Brian Higgins (went to Military School later)
4th row:  Joyce Miller, Jack Toman, Jim Russell, Russ Magee, Emmett Schaefer, Jim Persons, Ed Silver, Larry Jacobson.
