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.”

ANOTHER TOPIC I HAPPEN TO LOVE - KIRKWOOD ARCHITECTURE - SOMEWHERE SPECIAL

I have written about this topic in the past, in fact for years.  There is something so special about this architecture with its glass blocks, glazed tiles, garage doors, and the


unique layout of the setting.  Now of course it's gone, but classmate Roxie Guels Rassi sent me this article recently and I can't resist....but I will also tell you, at the Museum of Transport in Kirkwood, you know right on Barrett Station Road south of Big Bend, you can see a part of the facade rebuilt.  It is nestled in the room with some very cool cars which are not-to-be-missed features of the Museum.  While you are in town, a trip there will be mind-blowing ~ it's grown SO much since our childhood.  Our classmates Dave Beardsley and Bob O'Neill give abundant time as volunteers there, Bob's having been at it for over 50 years!!!  And now we've roped in my hubby Jack.  My son automated their Friends database while he was still in High School.... I remember going there with my dad as a child.  And NO, I did not smooch in the train tunnel but I know some of our classmates did!  At any rate, Coral Courts Motel was a landmark in Kirkwood for a long time...and I love asking our classmates, "Do YOU have a Coral Courts story?"  Thanks again Rox for the memories....
