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.”

ADIOS, FAREWELL AND GOOD-BYE TO 2019

Happy New Year to all my KHS65 friends. On this the last day of 2019, those of us who are 'of a certain age' may be feeling that certain age lately. From our Kirkwood High class of 1965 comes this wonderful new poem. Alan Yount is a jazz trumpeter, poet, retired university librarian and all 'round cool guy. Our fathers were McDonnell Aircraft pals and Alan & his high school jazz band played for us at our dances often; I'm sure I don't have to tell many of you that! Please take a few reminiscing moments to reflect on his latest poem, published at https://jerryjazzmusician.com. Actually this is his latest, and maybe greatest, but when I simply typed in the URL in my browser bar for JJM the first thing that popped up was another of Alan's poems from awhile back. This link here takes you right to his latest poem "Up in the Attic".  Please everyone be safe if you are out and about this evening. Thank you Alan for your years of friendship, great music and poetry.  I'll be drinking a champagne cocktail toast to my KHS65 friends and memories as the bells toll at midnight!
