Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memory: 75 and Counting, Just a Bit Slower
I have passed many so called milestones in my life. At 17, I became old enough to join the Navy, which was an important one that made me feel all grown up. Just before I reached 21, I got out of the navy for the first time vowing to never return (a vow which proved to be premature). At 21, I was old…
Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Small Towns

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Downtown Sedalia Tour
As a nostalgia nut, I am always happy to talk about my days growing up in Sedalia, and I love to hear or see something that triggers a memory from those days.
