As I write this I am in social isolation because of the coronavirus. Who would have ever thought we would be living like this? Let’s hope it’s conquered soon so we can all get back to normal living. Because of the isolation, it was extra nice to hear from Colby classmates. * Ed Goldberg is a Montana resident living in Bozeman. He remains active in a variety of nonprofits, with most of his time spent working with families with autistic children. He continues to spend a month or so a year in Vietnam, where he has many friendships. He’s always struck by how warmly he’s greeted by the generation who served in the war. Most recently, a grandparent at the dinner table told his family Ed should be the honored guest for the evening, at which point he received a big hug as well. Otherwise, all is well, and Ed makes a point of celebrating every day. * Tom Connors writes that as of Feb. 1 he is absolutely finished with any responsibility for all civic, church, and educational endeavors he has been involved in. Now it is golf, reading, and Jocelyn the rest of the way. * Frank Seebode says all of us have graduated from the Golden Years to the RUST YEARS. He says just being able to reply to my message is good news. He’s still going strong, active and alive. “Who could ask for anything more?” * Joan (Crowell ’60) and Skip Tolette have been attempting to learn which Colby alumni reside in their area of Florida (snowbirds like them included). They have found Don Dunbar ’56 and Bev ’61 and Liz Rowe Lapham ’63, who are in Vero. They recently had lunch with Eve and Ian Tatlock, who are in Key Largo, and Val and Bob Marier ’60, who are in Stuart, plus Karen (Beganny ’63) and Skeeter Megathlin heading to Naples, and Bev (Johnson ’60) and Keet Arnett, who also winter in Vero. Joan and Skip are thrilled with the marvelous resurgence that Colby is creating on many fronts, including the investment of time and treasure in Waterville. * Keep well, my friends.
