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!
