Happy summer, everyone! * Happy anniversary to Wylie Dufresne. His avant-garde New York restaurant, wd~50, is celebrating its 11th year. * In April I ran into Mike and Jessica D’Ercole Stanton and their two children on a flight from Boston to London. Mike had just run the Boston Marathon. They were visiting friends in Kensington Gardens and taking in the sights. My son, Webb, 8, and I visited family in Hampstead. We explored the city (Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Eye, etc.); saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Royal Theatre; paid homage to the Beatles on Abbey Road; stood at 0° longitude at the Prime Meridian in Greenwich; pretended to board the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 3⁄4; and toured Wimbledon. On our last day we caught up with the Stantons again at a heated Fulham v. Hull City soccer game. * This spring Sarah Block Wallace, her husband, Chad, and their boys, Jacob, 9, and Sam, 7, visited San Diego, Calif. There they spent time with Tom ’91 and Kristin Wallace Livezey and their children, Jocelyn, 10, and Luke, 7, who live in Encinitas. They feasted at Fish 101, rivaled each other in heated foosball elimination tournaments, and even took a swim in the Pacific. Sarah and her family live in Denver. * After eight years in Washington, D.C., Heather Ferguson Coldebella and her husband, Gus, have moved back to Massachusetts. “We wanted to be closer to family and to give our ‘one and only’ daughter the opportunity to feel a part of something bigger. Once we decided to make the move, we found ourselves ‘unexpectedly’ expecting our second child. We welcomed Grace Beckwith Coldebella on Feb. 2—five years to the day after her big sister, Tenley. A very fitting Groundhog Day gift! I’ll gratefully continue to put that Colby degree to good use as mom for a few more years to come.” * In July Jim Condron (jcondron.com) will be a summer residency fellow at the Edward F. Albee Foundation in Montauk, N.Y. The foundation’s mission is “to serve writers and visual artists from all walks of life, by providing time and space in which to work without disturbance.” This spring Jim was a semifinalist for Baltimore’s prestigious Sondheim Prize, and his work will be shown at the Decker and Meyerhoff Galleries of the Maryland Institute College of Art from July 17 through Aug. 3. * Katherine Rynearson Tagtmeier and her family have been living in Dubai since January 2013. She and her husband have three boys (ages 10, 9, and 6) and have been traveling extensively in the region. This spring they added Thailand to their list and are hoping to next connect with Jim Conrad in Abu Dhabi.
