My college roommate in undergrad went to Kirkwood High. She called it KirkWEED. :)
Get out of town! Small world. I wasn’t into horticulture so I’m sure I don’t know what she meant by that. My sister graduated KHS with Scott Bakula who is starring in NCIS New Orleans this fall. And who I believe might be responsible in part for that nickname.
Cute! I went to Claymont in the Parkway District. I remember those fashions!
That’s awesome - what a small world. I worked with so many Parkway kids when I worked at Six Flags. Actually, seems like I remember exitrowiron saying that he had a Ballwin connection? Can’t remember. Anyway, we really did think we had cool duds back in those days.
This is me in 1971. I’m the guy in the back on the far right. This is my first grade class from Robinson Elementary in Kirkwood, Missouri. That’s a suburb of St. Louis, some fifteen miles south of Ferguson. These were my friends and classmates. We all turn 50 this year. Well, except Mrs. Brown up there in the back row on the left. She will always be 30.
I’m not sure what this was - it was supposed to be a two-mile run but it felt like a slog through molasses. We had dinner last night at Bosco’s out on the patio overlooking the Arkansas River and perhaps I shouldn’t have had that many micro brews.
If you’re in the US, have a fabulous Labor Day! If you’re not, make it a great Monday anyway.
Four miles this morning in Two Rivers Park. Even at 7:00 am on a holiday weekend, it was thick with runners and cyclists. Among them were a couple work colleagues. It’s hard to go anywhere in this town and not run into someone you know. I’ve had one of those weeks where work demands got in the way of my Tumblr time, so I wasn’t able to post a couple of my other mostly uneventful runs this week. So there they are.
Now it’s time to switch gears - are you ready for some football? I’m excited to watch the Arkansas Razorbacks take on Auburn today! Whoo pig, sooie! Happy Labor Day weekend to all.
