I guess we are quite content in our golden years. We have fewer responses to my Lyris plea. Is that good news?
Dick Goldman had much to report. He and Patty had just returned from Florida, and the Massachusetts weather in early April was not conducive to golf or tennis. He congratulates me on my election to the Wes Baseball Wall of Fame. He received a long e-mail from John Watson. John hopes to make our 60th Reunion in 2018. Dick is on a quest, and I believe a valid one, to establish a group of Wes grads who are lawyers in Boston who will meet and look for opportunities to refer business to each other. Any in the class who are lawyers in Boston or know interested people, contact Dick.
Dick Tompkins’ note says he and Betsy are healthy and happy. They spend eight months in Florida and four in Minnesota. He sees Carl Van Etten and his wife frequently. He reports that they are doing well.
Art Geltzer objects to being called an “old timer,” but is doing well and has opened his Cape Cod home for the summer. He has been in touch with Ted Wieseman and Polly and Mel Cote.
I will quote Roger Paget: “In my role as senior adviser for the Davis UWC Scholars Program, I do site visits at campuses all over the country—and recently enjoyed a wonderful interlude at Wesleyan. To chat with students, faculty, and administrators is to gain vivid appreciation of 60 years of continuing progress. The energy is palpable, contagious. And Michael Roth ’78 is a treasure.
Bill Dieterich e-mails that after his retirement from the U.S. Foreign Service almost 20 years ago, he and his wife, Keiko, live in Arlington, Va., and spend summers at Lakeside Chautauqua in Lakeside, Ohio.
My former roommate, Dan Woodhead, and I have been conferring about two quests which we will pursue, details of which may be public before the next issue.
Neil Henry has had prostate surgery recently, but is okay otherwise. He anticipates a few visits to Chesapeake Bay this summer.
Kay and Bob Terkhorn will travel to Europe mid-June. They will travel to Prague, then a riverboat trip from Nuremburg on the Rhine and Moselle rivers to Luxembourg, then on to Paris for a few days. They will travel despite a fractured ankle that Kay suffered in March.
Kay and I leave shortly for The Hague where our daughter resides. My granddaughter, Margaux, is graduating from high school and will attend college in London at University College London. Kay and I will fly to Toulouse, France, and hook up with Nelson Edwards. He and wife Pirkko live in Lectoure in southern France. I will report firsthand on Burr next issue.
Hope all is well, looking forward to our 60th,
