Foley House update from Tom Kenney
Here is a somewhat edited Foley House update from Tom Kenney, along with a Foley House photo from our Junior year. The photo was provided by Tom Couser '68 when he and Tom K had lunch recently in New Haven, a 'convenient' halfway between Quaker Hill, CT and southern Westchester, NY.
"It's fun to see those "old men" (the '68s) and the "newbies" ('70s).
The pic was supplied yesterday by our older brother Tom Couser '68 when I met him for lunch in New Haven - splitting the distance between his place in Quaker Hill Ct and mine in southern Westchester. First time I'd seen him in 50 years. Still sharp, tall, skinny and looking ready for tennis. (I remain tall).
The two Toms got together after Tom Kenney sent Tom Couser a fan letter about his recently-published book, Letter To My Father. A Memoir. <https://www.amazon.com/Letter-My-Father-Thomas-Couser/dp/0761869581> Tom K describes it as a sometimes-wrenching but always beautifully-written story about a Dad and the worlds he influenced, including Tom C's. As Tom K says, fathers and their sons is a topic that few of us can easily let go. Tom's is worth keeping. Arthur Fergensen even makes an appearance, if that tweaks anyon'e interest.
Tom K still has room for more of your pics/stories. Send them
Tom C's is full of enthusiasm for heading up to his 50th reunion next month. He had only attended a couple of other reunions but as we all know, there's something so special about our 50th. Get ready.
