Spring Potpourri

February 6, 2014

Spring potpourri: M.L. and Bruce McEwan are faring well in the Sunshine State. Bruce would like to have all of us turn out for our grand 60th Reunion next year. It also noteworthy that we 55’ers have some distinguished older brothers: Phil Greer, ’52, Immediate Past Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Caldwell Esselstyn ’52, and Fran L’Esperance ’49, recipients of The Heritage Award. It’s a meritorious toss-up between our own Ambassador and Under-Secretary-General to the United Nations, Joseph Reed, and his brother, Nathaniel Reed ‘51, an environmental activist who helped preserve “one million acres of wild lands” in Florida. We’ve heard again from Pete Clapp, our resident sage in Hawi, Hawaii, who says that “We all need a good laugh at least once a day.” Some signs he’s read recently are: “Automatic Washing Machines: Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out.” “Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.” Spotted in a safari Park: “Elephants, please stay in your car.” “Cold wave linked to temperatures.” “Kids make nutritious snacks.” Enjoy the photo of a December sunset at Torrey Pines State National Reserve in La Jolla, CA
