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.”

BRUCE ANTLE WEIGHS IN ON 50 YEARS OF LIFE

Reading my emails just now I found a classmates.com message that I had a new private message waiting, however, when I clicked there was only a part of a sentence, undated, which looked like a message from Bruce.  I have corresponded with him only a couple times, earlier this summer when we were talking up the reunion.  I clicked around, found 3 pix he posted, and one of him, but then also this text which I post here, hoping it is okay....Classmates.com is pretty public and I see nothing Bruce would want to hide, so I hope you enjoy reading about this classmate who's led an interesting life:

"Story

The Call staff, Mrs Conley, building a paper mache mountain for homecoming in Gary VonDerheide's garage, drag racing Nelson Mann on Rt.66 (Nelson's Buick beat my Ford), very cold Turkey Day games, sailing on Alton Lake ... hard to believe it has been fifty years since graduating from high school and hard to believe we are all approaching seventy years of age.

Darlene Petri (class of 1966) and I married in 1970 after graduating from Washington University and Sears moving me to Madison, WI. We have a daughter and two sons and nine grand children. We lived in Wisconsin the first 20 years, then gravitated back to Missouri and later Florida to care for elderly parents. We owned a small family resort in Northern Wisconsin, worked retail and currently manage a small real estate brokerage firm started by our youngest son. Our first house was a condemned cottage on Lake Mendota in Madison, which started a pattern of buying and fixing up houses. Darlene has counted 32 residences we have lived. We have also been active in the church and after receiving a M.Div. from Eden Seminary in Webster Groves served churches as a pastor in the United Methodist Church both in Missouri and Florida.

We spend most of the year in Englewood, FL located in southwest Florida on the gulf coast south of Sarasota and a small lake cottage near Owensville, MO which has always been our get away."
Thanks for sharing, Bruce and Darlene - maybe we'll see you at our next reunion!
