First, autumn is in the air. Definitely. We've had an evening of frost, though it didn't bother the pumpkins. (We got those in the afternoon before the frost.)
But the leaves are changing. As more and more of them hit the ground,
the bright autumn colours
become much more dull.
Dr. Ron Banks, from Duke University and Duke Medical School (Durum, North Carolina) was up and did a couple of presentations related to medical research, and the place of animals in it. One of the presentations was to the university faculty; the other, at the main public library, for the community. Both were reasonably attended.
On Thursday, J's nephew and his wife came for a visit, bringing their four week old son with them.

It was not only a chance for us to see them, but for our son and his kids to visit with their cousins.
On Saturday, Bear celebrated another birthday (his 66th), our team won in the Canadian Football League game, and our daughter brought a birthday cake when she came to see the game with us. Bear also got a ton of birthday greetings from friends via Facebook; all much appreciated.
Bear thinks that was a good week.
