Darrow Dutcher Hodges ’63 writes: "I’m on a friend’s vineyard in western Colorado in peach and wine country. I was skiing a lot and then needed to quarantine. Then I was supposed to be in Florida all April and May, working with bird groups and visiting Miami, but all hell broke loose. My house in Denver remained rented to a couple who came for surgery at the University of Colorado Hospital. So, I am happily in the best place ever, but grapes aren’t being harvested till September. I volunteered to repaint the old 1920s rock sign at the town park among other projects, like mulching vine roots with alfalfa, a secondary nutritive crop. So, home in June, but The Palisade sign is done!"
