David Fowler spends his time between New Mexico and Montana. He has 12 grandchildren—four in New Mexico, three in China, two in Seattle, and three in New Hampshire. His first job after graduating from Colby was teaching at the Hawaii Preparatory School on the Big Island. The shocking thing is that the kids he taught are now in their retirement years. This fall Dave will have completed his second mystery novel. The first, Cloud Swallower, takes place in New Mexico and has a protagonist who is a local Pueblo Indian and a graduate of Dartmouth. The second novel, Descent, features the same location and hero. As a true history major he has had fun researching the stories. * Ann Kimball Chase writes that her life has been rather dull compared to 20 years ago when she was constantly on the go. She has her beautiful island home on the market; it needs a family with kids to really enjoy the rather large home and huge yard. She has given up volleyball since it is dangerous for 76-year-old bones, and she will become one of those seniors in Florida swimming and walking, as she has been told they are safer. And no biking—the last time out she fell and broke her shoulder. Anyone want to buy a nice, relatively new bike? * Dick Peterson works with a start-up company writing cyber-theft insurance. Now he’s learning convoluted new things with the computer and Internet, distributing products online, marketing with Google ad words, and measuring with analytics and algorithms. He wonders if he missed these subjects at Colby all those years ago. * Karen Kennedy Yearsley lives on Bainbridge Island near the ferry to Seattle. She loves renting her condo, which is close to everything so she can walk to many places. She enjoys line dancing, pingpong, tennis, Shakespeare classes, bridge, and volunteer work. Now that life has become much more stress-free, Karen is thinking about doing some traveling. * Mike Silverberg attended Colby Day at the Red Auerbach basketball camp, which Steve Curley has run for more than 50 years. Ed Marchetti, Phil Shea, Ray Berberian, and Peter Cavari were also there to watch the kids practice and enjoy lunch with much conversation. It’s a wonderful program that Steve has kept in existence to help a substantial number of young men find their way in life through sports. Mike also is in touch Ron Weber, Dick Fields ’61, and Hank Silverman. * Judy Allen Ferretti and her husband had a wonderful trip to Croatia in May. They lived on a beautiful, spacious yacht with 24 others, visiting different scenic islands every day. They traveled with Road Scholar, where Judy serves on the board of directors. * Pat Sturges Aufdenberg had a fantastic trip to England, enjoying history, architecture, scenery, etc. She took a three-day tour in Durham, where she studied the Anglo-Saxon manuscripts written by the Venerable Bede and others, and she visited places where the monks lived in the 700s. In York she saw Yorkminister and the shambles, learning that Richard was not a hunchback but had one shoulder higher than the other. Pat spent another two weeks in London going on in-depth two-person tours. She also saw Swan Lake by the Bolshoi Ballet at the Royal Opera House. * Eunice Bucholz Spooner has a German exchange student, Joscha, who is registered as a senior at the local high school. She never dreamed she would be the mother of a high school senior again. * We will miss Ted Lockhart ’61, our dear friend and honorary member of the Class of ’60.
