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.”

KHS65 in TEXAS - Great visit!

What a great, if short, visit I had last week to Dallas.  I was there to make my official visit as President General of the National Society Colonial Daughters of the Seventeenth Century, which was a fun time.  Lots of great food, great hostess, meeting several ladies whom I had never met and a visit to Pres. G W Bush Library in Dallas.  After that part of my trip was over I headed to Rockfish Restaurant for a great seafood lunch but even better, a great visit, read that gabfest, with Karen Schurig Bass and Pam Dalton Sneath.  Pam and I hadn't seen one another since KHS so it was a fun treat to get caught up with her.  We had a nice glass of wine, watered down with a good meal & Diet Coke so no problem driving afterwards!  I am not sure how any of us finished our lunch for all the talking.  We met at noon and I'm pretty sure it was 2:30 or later when I followed Karen to her beautiful home in Arlington.  It's been several years since my last visit to Dallas, and I must say the growth is amazing.  New larger buildings, wider highways, MORE highways, it was a shock to me to realize just how much the area has expanded!  Karen and wonderful hubby Jim hosted me at their home where, after we had an interesting and delicious dinner at The Rustic, we crashed and I slept like that proverbial log.  Joining us for dinner were Dean Swisher, Kerry Moskop, Kathy & Bill Lang, John and Daline Buhl and Roy Lamkin.  All except Roy were at our Reunion so we of course discussed that and everyone agreed it was a great time.  Roy reports Bev, who wasn't feeling well that night & couldn't join us, runs marathons, and runs 41 miles 3 times per week, Mon Weds and Friday.  That girl has a LOT of energy.  Roy is on one of the Boards at Baylor Medical School and of course was with Texas Instrument for many years there in the Dallas area.  Bill Lang has had some replacement type medical issues, he called himself a bionic man!  Kathy doesn't look a day over 20 and certainly not like she had 4 children in 5 1/2 years!  Check out Kathy's Choice, her wonderful catering business/tea room/ event planning venture at www.kathyschoice.com.  I'll be back in Texas in May and I'm hoping we can have an event there, she came up with the idea and I'm all for it!  Can't wait to be back with this great group!  Thanks everyone for joining our little soiree, the food at The Rustic was great!  And special thanks to Karen for arranging these activities for my visit...she's a special friend and a special Texan!  

I was able to see the SMU Campus for the first time when I visited the Bush Library.  Now I see why so many Kirkwoodians go there for college...and in today's world, there is a lot of growth and new construction along with refurbishing of the older buildings.
