Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Washington Park”

I am still hearing about this story that appeared in the Sedalia Democrat Feb. 29, 2000. It was even popular with those too young to remember when the park was still around.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Mom Was a Riveter Too”

Everyone has heard about "Rosie the Riveter.”  Well, my mother was a riveter too.  She didn't put planes or tanks together, but like Rosie, it was hard work done by hand, for not much pay, and it helped her win her own private war.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “The Monsters That Lived Down The Street”

This Mid-Missouri Memory is about a special love in my life. Those smoke belching, steam spitting trains that ran through Sedalia while I grew up just two blocks away. Was anything more frightening, and at the same time more fascinating to small children? I don’t think so.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “13 Buttons”

The bell bottom thirteen button gaberdine uniform I owned for a short time as a young sailor is still, in my mind, the coolest thing I have ever worn, in or out of the navy. Just re-reading this memory makes me long for the feel and look of them.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Textures of Life” and “That Hoppy Sweater”

This story came to me as I thought about my Grandmother Wickliffe. The wit and wisdom she dispensed along with love to her other grandchildren and me was priceless.  She died over 40 years ago, but she was such an influence on my life that I can close my eyes and see her as clearly as if she were here yesterday.  The story "Texture of Life" should ring a bell with anyone who knew someone like my grandmother, who could never pass up the opportunity to check the quality of what they were wearing, by feeling the material.
