John ’55 and Jane Daib Reisman spent two weeks in East Boothbay in August. They connected with Olin and Willie McDonald Sawyer in Falmouth on their way north, as well as Barb Newhall Stevens and Marian Woodsome, who were on their way south. During their stay they saw other Colby friends: Bill and Cindy Allerton Rocknak, Mark ’54 and Larry Walker Powley ’54, and Kathy McConaughy Zambello ’56. “We always look forward to these visits each year!” * Marcia Griggs Atsaves has been busy—still working but also playing: tennis, swimming, exercise classes, and traveling when not at her house in McLean or beach apartment in Delaware. Her last trip was to Scottsdale, Ariz., to visit older son Andrew’s family and attend a granddaughter’s graduation. “It was so hot. Amazing, for May!” Next trip will be to St. Maarten’s over Thanksgiving with her stepbrother’s family. * Brad and Helen Payson Seager spent a very hot week in Vienna recently and then went to Tanglewood with 17,000 others—Beryl Scott Glover, you too? Brad fell on the way home and endured two ambulance rides before EMTs decided he could skip a stay in the hospital. “Aging is not for cowards! I want to come to the 55th, but we have a granddaughter graduating from Vassar in 2013. I hope it doesn’t interfere!” * Al Dean decided to sell the plane he built and flew for the last 10 years. Though he and wife Kay (German ’59) made many trips all over in the last 49 years, he “felt it was time to stop and do more traveling with somebody else doing the flight plans.” He and Kay see Wendy McWilliam Denneen ’60 and John Ludwig and wife Connie, and hear from David and Sheila Campbell Rhoades, who are doing well in Colorado and their second home in Montana. The Deans are also in touch with Jim ’59 and Sally Phelan McIntosh ’59. Coincidentally, Jim’s sister-in-law, Abby McIntosh, is a friend and neighbor of mine. Al emcees the Sunday jazz matinee, noon to 4 p.m., on NPR radio (WICN) in Worcester and still drives the 1955 VW bug he had sophomore year. He may bring it back for the 55th reunion, and “rides will be available.” * I am excited about an imminent trip to Tuscany, where my sister and I and two friends from Mass. will rent an apartment for a two-week stay on a farm estate. We’ll have a car rental and make up our own excursions around the countryside, sampling wines and luscious Italian cuisine, drinking in the lovely landscapes, etc. Before flying back to Logan we’ll be in Florence for two days, visiting museums and sampling life in the city. Arrivederci till the next issue, and please keep the news coming.
