Dear fellow classmates, I wonder how many of us are still alive from the class of 1934. Marge Dorson Harvey (Vassar ’42) and I have been married for 70 years and are still on speaking terms. We live in Littleton, MA in a large old farm house, too large, since our 4 children have homes of their own. We are surrounded by 100 acres of forest and meadow owned by the New England Forestry Foundation in the center of town in walking distance of church, fire department, library and historical society. We need and get a lot of help from friends, family, a boarder, and folks we have to pay. After years of strenuous outdoor activity and many mountains I doubt that I could reach Pocumtuck Rock today, indeed I can barely make it to the mail box. Fortunately I can still drive to stores, events, and medical appointments. Politically we are well to the left of many of our contemporaries and despair of the country we are leaving our offspring. Perhaps our representatives in Washington will come to realize that politics is the art of compromise, if so, the USA can muddle through.
