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.”

STORIES FROM OUR MATES, I LOVE TO GET THEM!!! CHECK THIS OUT!



Our classmate Lary Lazier has retired from a long and stellar career as a fireman in Kirkwood...my late husband's great grandfather was one of the very first firemen in Kirkwood, so the department is a favorite Kirkwood 'thing' of mine.  Ken McBride and Lary have been buds for a long time, as Ken recently reminded me the photos here are from 35 years ago, as he says "YIKES".  These are from November of 1980.  Another reminder from Ken is that the pole dancer is now 50 years old - wonder if she's still dancing?

Herewith Ken's commentary:  

Lary and I used to like establishments with cheap beer and 'interesting' patrons. Originally the cats were his then he pawned them off on me since his new wife would not allow him to bring them along. They were never declawed and were very much bad boys, destroying a lot of furniture, street fighting, and, of course getting us kicked out of  the upscale establishment shown in the picture.  
Checkout the hair-do and 50s ashtray!  Thanks Ken and Lary for sharing - always fun to see our friends having FUN!  Have to wonder what was the fate of Goliath??  Come to the reunion and ask Ken!
