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.”

The Late Great Bob Albrecht

HI EVERYONE, I hope your spring is lovely, and that no one is inundated by flooding waters!  The TV photos are terrifying to me.  Thanks to my long-time great pal Roy Herrera we have an interesting window into part of the life of our late classmate Bob Albrecht who died last June.  I posted then about his passing, but Roy had told me he had something else he wanted me to post, and here it is.  Roy has been a bit pre-occupied for the past year or less, he has uprooted himself and lady from Brooklyn, NY to Vero Beach, Florida....certainly made a great life change in my opinion, the weather in Vero is normally gorgeous all year round, except perhaps in hurricane season.  Please go here:

http://www.lowbrows.us/ to read Bob's newsletter.  Lowbrows was Bob's establishment and I'll just bet it was a great place to have a great time!  I'd love to hear from some of you who were Bob's close buds, perhaps some of our classmates in TX actually visited Lowbrows!  Facebook to KHS65 or Leslie VanderMeulen Richards or comment here....THANKS to Roy for this wonderful memory of Bob!
