Janet Gay Hawkins wrote that all is well on the east end of Long Island. They survived Sandy and the next big blow very nicely. Life isn’t all bad at Peconic Landing, one of the premier continuing-care facilities in New York State. “I have all the freedom in the world to come and go as I please and when I please—but still I know I can have help at the push of a button! And, I have a beautiful view of LI Sound right out my living room window!” * David has frequent brief e-mails with Howell Clement, most of them inquiring about weather (snow in Montana and hurricanes in Florida). They were roommates in 1944. That is an enduring friendship! * Elizabeth Dyer Brewster returned to 6000 Pelican Bay Blvd #704, Naples, FL 34108 Dec. 3, and all correspondence should be sent there or via e-mail. She stays very busy in her new retirement community in Memphis and has many new friends, even a few originally from New England. She wrote that it is great to be near her oldest son and family, who are just a few blocks away. She had a wonderful family reunion/tailgate party in Athens at the UT-UGA game in September, with UGA winning by just one touchdown. “I couldn’t lose, however, as I have students/graduates at both universities. Guess you are aware the grandson of Ted Shiro ’51 is the UGA quarterback. Have seen Ted occasionally at meetings in Naples. Made a trip to Knoxville in November and actually saw Univ. of Tennessee (UT) win a game, but more importantly visited my youngest son and family in nearby Maryville.” Elizabeth joined Dyer family members, including her brother Richard R. Dyer ’42, in Florida for Christmas. Her middle son was due to arrive from Atlanta the day after Christmas. She also hopes to see her granddaughter Ellen Wortham, who won the Southeastern Conference Scholar Athlete award for 2012 in track and field and now holds the UT all-time record for 400-meter hurdles. Ellen lives, works, and trains in Orlando, with a goal of again making it to the Olympic trials and maybe more. * Dorothy and David Marson have returned to Jupiter, Fla., for another winter season and continue to welcome news from members of the Class of 1948.
