Dan Yett and wife Beverly avoided some wintry weather by going to Patagonia and the Atacama Desert in northern Chile for some extraordinary scenery. In a separate trip, they flew to Bangkok for a tour focusing on the Khmer kingdoms in Burma, Cambodia, Laos, and northern Thailand, all great locations for photographers. Otherwise Dan continues to spend time at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and its “Q?rius” area, designed for hands-on access by adolescent visitors. * Bill and Cindy Allerton Rocknak look forward to a happy summer after cleaning up from a horrific storm that whacked their area last Sept. 11. Cyclone-like winds devastated the woods around them and threw several tall pines on their home. “We now have a new roof, rebuilt chimney, and repainted living room. Cindy has been a super trooper, armed with her handsaw and cutting shears, methodically cleaning the mess all through the freezing winter.” Their daughter, Stefanie ’88, is completing a commissioned life-size statue of Edgar Allen Poe to be unveiled this October in Boston. Those interested in a sneak preview can type “Stefanie Rocknak Poe sculpture” into any search engine. * John Edes’s progeny continue to excel at sports—no surprise! The latest super-athlete is Jordan Edes-King, a six-foot, 160-pound eighth grader who lives in Tennessee and excels at both basketball and football (his team was undefeated). John was sorry to hear that Larry Cudmore passed away, as were Bruce Blanchard and many others who knew Larry well. * For a belated honeymoon, Archie Twitchell and wife Irene toured Rome, Florence, and other parts of Italy, then boarded a ship to cruise to Athens, Istanbul, and the Greek islands. A stop in Naples, devastated in World War II and still not recovered as of 1961, now showed a flourishing city. The archaeological museum has a wonderful audio tour, and the Amalfi coast is still beautiful but overrun by tourists. The Twitchells are building a house in Bardstown, Ky. “Fortunately we share many of the same tastes, so much of the decision making is not difficult, though the volume of decisions is breathtaking.” * Ginny Angney Bushee spent part of the winter in Myrtle Beach and enjoyed seeing movies and shows but still could not escape the ice storms that harassed the North. She was sorry to hear from a summer neighbor in Morgan, Vt., that Willie Lyman Sherman passed away in October. * Judy Brown Dickson recently took a Road Scholar trip to Cuba. “People-to-people exchanges were an incredible experience!” * Marty Burger is still working. He recently completed an associate’s program in risk management after finishing two final courses. “I find it quite hard to study at my old age.” We all sympathize! “Looking forward to a two-week cruise on my sailboat this summer.” * Carlos Davila left mid-April for a three-week trip, destination unspecified. Look for details in the next issue of Colby. And remember that I’d like to hear from many more of you. With wonderful memories of our 55th reunion, best wishes to all.
