Hi everyone. This is Ann Burnham Deering subbing for Kathie Flynn Carrigan, who is recovering, slowly but well, from a fall right before Christmas. This column will be brief as only two class members sent news. Today is March 1 and beautiful snow is falling fast. We expect up to a foot, and the winter sports lovers will finally be happy. Simultaneously Jack and I are watching robins and cardinals in our yard. Crazy Maine weather! * Dave Roberts sends greetings from Minnesota, where he spends eight months under the watchful eyes of his caring Colby daughters, Susan Roberts Dangle ’86 and Linda Roberts Pagnano ’88. In June he returns to Waterville and Jefferson, Maine, for the summer. He enjoys visits, actual and telecom, from Minot Greene, Sue Biven Staples, Kathy McConaughy Zambello, John Dutton, Nate Miller, Gil Alfano, Robert “Whitie” Thurston ’54, Aubrey Keef ’54, Ruthann Simmons MacKinnon ’56 et al. “Colby’s chain of friendship cannot be broken!” Thanks, Dave. * Marilyn Faddis Butler reiterates, “sometimes old age is not what it is cracked up to be.” Golden years not so much. After several surgeries in recent years in Florida, she is still playing and singing alto in her church choir and loving both. “Life is good,” says she. ATTA girl, Marilyn! * Please send news to Kathie for our next column, which she writes so well! Cheers and good health to her and ALL of you!
