The Fox & the Hounds - December 1, 2012


Marci Myers Markey: "The Master of the hounds and the Middleburg foxhounds lead the rest of the field down Main Street to kick

off Christmas in Middleburg, VA.   This has been done for many, many years."




Marci: "My oldest daughter Jennifer Grier and her youngest son Alex

wave to me as they pass.  From here the Middleburg Hunt goes off to

chase the fox (they hope) and then to the hunt breakfast.   Jennie is now

in Afghanistan for 10 or 12 days because of her job in civilian computer

support.  I hope this is her last trip."



Birthday Girl on November 29, 2012


Abbie Marder Banks: " This is a photo of Don and me at my

YIKES, 72!"



Abbie: "A few days before my birthday, I was on the Nokomis Beach drummer's float in Venice, Fl. in the

Christmas parade with my djembe drum, light up purple dreds and painted face.   Our float had about 20

people on it drumming and another 30 walking and drumming and dancing. It is always an incredible fun time."  


A 6th "Grandchild"


Mike Miller: "Here is a picture of our 6th grandchild.

His name is Dax.   Actually, he is the mascot for the

team.  The picture was taken in late November, 2012

Italian Vacation with Rodger & Sandy Mingo

Rodger: We just returned from Italy (Sept.29-Oct.9, 2012) and had a great but exhausting time (11 days, 6 Italian cities and 2 Swiss cities).    We had the greatest  'step on Guides' anyone could ever ask for.  They knew everything about everything, but we were on the go from early morning 'til 10 pm every day.  Great food, but I've had enough pasta to last me several years.

                           Rodger at the Vatican, Swiss Guard and all.

Doing Denmark

They had a great time anyway and arrived home on Sept. 21, 2012.


A Proud Grandmother


Carm (Colaianni) Beckner: "This is a picture

Having a Ball in Bali !


Cathie (Tort) & Ed Kane just got back from a from

a 3 week trip to Bali, Indonesia and their trip ended

in Singapore.  Cathie said, "Fabulous people!   Best

trip ever!  The trip ran from Sept. 26 to Oct. 16, 2012.

It was a 19 hour plane ride each way to Singapore

then 2 more hours on a smaller plane to Bali.


Cathie said, "This was our tent on Moho Island.   Actually, the tent was air

conditioned.   It was a beautiful island!  We trekked and snorkeled every day."



"Here is a monkey watching us --- it really wanted

to eat our breakfast.  We were told never to feed

them.  Hysterical!  One morning about 30 of them

watched us eat!"



"Here are rice fields in the City of Ubud.  We loved Ubud!

Besides hiking in the rice fields each day we shared in a

Ubud Readers/Writers Festival event."


Why Not Take a Tour of Turkey?


Joan (Leeds) Graviss and her fiancee, Jack Mojecki, traveled around Turkey

from Sept. 24 to Oct. 11, 2012.  In the pic above they are in the Cappadochia

area.   They also spent time in Istanbul, Ephesus and 4 days on a small boat in

the Aegean, as well as Antalya and Cappadochia.  They obviously avoided the

Syrian border (bullet holes are bad for your complexion).



Joan & Jack went for a balloon ride!   Joan said she had a look of terror on

her face.    Those balloons went up very high!



    All those balloons were up in the air over a lunar landscape at daybreak.

Trip to Glacier National Park, Montana (August 7 to 14, 2012)

Lou Vilensky: " Here are some photos from a recent trip to Glacier National

Park.    This was the last of the major U.S. National Parks for me to visit and

it (as well as all of the others) was fantastic!    See America!! "


                                Our man Lou is a real outdoorsman!


Summer Cruise to Alaska


Anne (Dunn) & Lee Herndon took a cruise to Alaska.

'58'ers August Dinner Party - 2012


 On August 25, 2012 sixteen classmates along with spouses and partners --- 28 people

in all --- gathered at East Bay Crab & Grille for a dinner party.    Since Mary (Knapp)

Tatum was flying in from Arizona and Lynn (Gallagher) Silton was flying in from

California --- it seemed like a good excuse to throw a dinner party!   So a lot of 

classmates within driving range were also invited.

 It was a great party!    Good food --- catching up with old friends --- jokes --- and the

singing of the Alma Mater and the ACHS Fight Song rounded out the evening.

graduation most of us are still together --- and still partying!
