Creature Feature Bob Kaster ’63 writes: “It is hard to believe that I have been retired for five years. It really goes fast. Some assigned judging and a lot of travel, foreign and domestic, notwithstanding the close call we had two years ago with the New Zealand earthquake. I am attaching a photo of one of Ricardo Breceda’s great sculptures in Borrego Springs, Calif. The sculpture is the one on the right.” UC HASTINGS 47
