Happy fall everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful, fun-filled summer. * Susan Diplock Constantineau recently moved to a 30-acre farm in Micanopy, Fla., where her horse resides. She describes it as a sleepy little town of around 750 residents where the Michael J. Fox movie Doc Hollywood was filmed. Her horse is being trained in dressage, but she doubts he will ever make it to the Olympics! Susan continues to work in the library at the University of Florida with no immediate plans for retirement. * Laurie Killoch Wiggins observed that she keeps seeing our class news column moving inexorably to the front of the alumni news section, “43 years, are you kidding me? I guess not. I’m going on Medicare—please tell me I am not alone! Has someone invented a time-stop machine?” * Alice Huse Tanner had a great summer of entertainment and family activities. She says that after all these years she finally got to a Jimmy Buffet concert. “As everyone said, the pre-show entertainment in the parking lot was nearly as good as the man himself.” Her 4th of July was spent in Boulder with family ranging in age from under three to over 80, including four children, significant others, and three grandchildren, two of whom are only nine days apart in age. A couple weeks later she traveled to New Brunswick to meet some long-lost cousins. Her grandfather, one of eight children, had seven children of his own. The gathering included about 30 blood relatives in St. John for the weekend, during which time she discovered that her great-grandfather was a famous paleontologist. The impetus for the gathering was to examine the contents of a safe containing letters from her grandfather to a family who adopted one of his daughters after her grandmother’s death in the 1919 flu epidemic. Her cousin’s husband opened the safe after her aunt’s death (at 90+, in 2010) and unraveled all sorts of history. “It’s really amazing to find out who’s part of your family!” * I also received brief notes of greeting from Eddie Woodin and Tom Wright. * Pam and I continue to enjoy retirement and this summer had an opportunity to join our daughter and son-in-law (John ’99 and Melissa Gerbi Doyle ’99) and their son and daughter on a fantastic family trip to Hawaii. Thanks to all of you who wrote in. I hope to hear from many more of you for the next edition of Colby.
