Some news

I wonder how many members of my class are still alive? AT 97 Marjorie and I have been married for 69 years and have lived in Littleton, MA for was as a family physician for 53 of them. I was a founding member to the Acton Medical Associates and later of the Littleton Conservation Trust. I have enjoyed a long retirement during which I was busy in my shop repairing furniture, filling requests for TV and computer stands, book cases etc. and acting as treasurer of the Trust and the Friends of the Littleton Council on Aging. We are very much limited by health and aging problems. I have had to give up my bicycle, down hill skiing, driving at night if its raining. We probably should have gone to retirement community long since. I have been a poor Deerfield alumnus even though programmed for success by Bill Avirett via Amherst and ADPhi. I discovered later my sheltered fortunate life which at the time I consider normal. Present day graduates face a much more difficult and challenging life.
