Scan copy 2

… working on some thoughts of the campus*. Son and daughter came with me.. More fleece vests with numerals and a cow for all. I can only hope that all classes have the same spirit and conviviality that the Class of 1956 has. I did manage a short 7 minute stand-up at the Saturday night dinner to the amusement of  a few but the amazement of all.

Some readers may recall Will Slack ’11, a constant commenter here in the day. He made his way into the dotage of the Rogerson lunch in which Tink Campbell ’56 was awarded Joseph’s coat, to find me. A very nice man. I introduced him to son Garret as they seem to share that special level of computer nerddom (in the best sense of the word).

And I interested our only classmate member of ASCAP in trying his hand at a new Williams song. I was disappointed in the winner of the recent contest. I just got his lyrics and they are quite a different  and positive perspective of the Purple Valley and Mount Graylock. I am looking forward to hearing the music.

As an aside, I did observe that the spirit of the reunion was quite positive and fun-filled. Not like the acerbic observations and divisions which seem to proliferate on Ephblog. Here’s hoping that the Center for Disease Control can keep this virus isolated to this url.

Beat Amherst!
