It’s great to be back home, where the autumnal colors are vivid and the leaves are almost all still on the trees (maybe 90%). None of the trees and flowers we saw on this morning’s walk through our neighborhood was as brilliant as the leaves on this dogwood, which were especially striking backlit like this….
It’s also great (actually more than that: positively superlative!) that my parents are doing so well this year after the crises of last fall.
During our trip, we had wonderful visits with long-time friends in WI, MI, and NY, and I’m especially excited that we could meet a cutie who was born in late October, the newest listing in our address book (even if he doesn’t know it yet!).
Thanks for the Fat Tire, McGrady. We didn’t break any bottles on the way home!
