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.”

SPEED SURFACES IN ST. LOUIS

No, I don't mean fast cars, drugs or any such, I mean Jim Herb of Lowell, Michigan.  I'll never be able to stop calling him Speed, but he does now go by Jim.  He and lovely wife Jan were in St. Louis on July 11th on their way down to Branson for a vacation and Jack and I picked them up at their motel and we had a great dinner at P J's in Kirkwood.  Juicy burgers and fries, beer, a bit of wine, and great conversation made it a very fun evening.  Then of course we drove around Kirkwood seeing some old haunts.  We went by his house on Flower Hill Court in Glendale, and as we drove in that area he pointed to many a house remembering the names of our friends who lived there...as I recall mostly girls!  Imagine that!  That neighborhood has held its beauty over all of these years with lovely landscaping, well-kept


homes, and so forth. Isn't this just SO Kirkwood?  Jan is Jim's second, younger, wife...he's one of our classmates who has been educating children for decades!  But their last has now flown the nest so they can relax and enjoy life a bit more freely.  Having lived in Pittsburgh for some years, they are big Pirates fans so we had some good sports conversations.  Thanks for a great visit Jan and Jim, let's do it again sometime. You should come to town next month!  It's not too late.  My treat at PJs!  FIND JIM ON FACEBOOK - Jim Herb w/Greenridge Realty - he has some interesting interior design pix on his page as well as real estate "stuff"...check it out!
