Bruce McDonald writes: “I officially retired from medicine and surgery at the end August 2010. My retirement lasted only a couple of months as I got drafted to serve as race commander at the Austin Yacht Club. In addition to the usual challenges of putting on races every weekend for 44 weeks of the year, we had a La Niña weather pattern that resulted in high winds and a record drought, which saw our lake levels drop more than 60 feet. I still do freelance photography and some for-hire event photography (mostly sailing regattas). I completely redid my website to a full-blown professional site.” * Ed Quinto wants to know when Pete Rouse will host a Colby day for the Class of ’68 at the White House? * Arthur Brennan writes: “I retired from full-time service as a Maine judge in August and now serve on an active-retired basis. I plan to work about four months a year. Hope to do some long-delayed traveling and generally enjoy a more relaxed schedule. So far, so good.” * Jessie McGuire still travels a couple of times a year, which is what he loves to do. Being in Bhutan for the king’s wedding (and seeing two different festivals) is the latest and probably most exciting trip in the last couple of months. * Dr. Judith De Luce retired from Miami University for good. After teaching for 36 years, it was time to try a few new things. She writes, “I’ve discovered that everything they say about retirement is true; it’s wonderful. So far I’ve been president of the Oxford Kiwanis club, chair of the board of the Institute for Learning in Retirement, member of my church’s vestry, and my latest project is doing mock interviews on campus for career services. When people ask if I have enough to keep busy, I just laugh. And now I have to finish preparing to teach Latin for a friend on maternity leave.” * Spencer Sullivan writes: “I recently had a chat with my neighbor in Plainfield about our college experiences in the ’60s. We’ve known each other for several years but he hadn’t known of my foreshortened Colby experience. He asked if I knew Peter Jost and then related his years at Rutgers Law School and their casework together. I’m still dabbling in contract charter flying at Morristown, N.J., airport. I’ve taken up inline skating as a fitness program and compete against other “grand veterans” and “grand esquire” (generally 60 years up) skaters. I’ve won a few races, but the tragedy is that I’ve been the only skater in those geriatric divisions.” * Ted Allison writes: “Being a residential real estate agent these past few years has been just fantastic! What a market! In July I delivered the address at the Run to the Vietnam Wall in Cody, Wyo. This was my ninth time riding the Harley to this gathering. You simply cannot offer enough thanks and gratitude to our veterans. I just got back from Alicante, Spain, where I sailed in the Legends Regatta. Having sailed in three round-the-world races, it seems that I am (was) a legend! I sailed in the regatta onboard King’s Legend, a Swan 65 sloop, on which I became a circumnavigator in 1978. Next Carolyn, my bride of some 40 years, and I will spend February in Nepal. Onward!” * As for the aforementioned Peter Jost, I recently completed my first 5K while visiting my son and his fiancée near San Francisco. He was second overall and she was fourth in women’s; I was 123rd. Nevertheless, I may have been bitten by the running bug, and I will definitely train for the next one! Hope you are all well. Keep in touch.
