Fall in New Town

Fall is my favorite season.  It is easy to understand why.  First, my birthday is in the fall, as is Ashley's, my grandpa's, my uncle's, and Halloween and Thanksgiving!  It is also the season of my cancer-free anniversary!! I have sorely neglected this blog this year.  I am deep in the throes of writing my dissertation.  It is coming along nicely and I am thrilled that we are nearing the end.  I want my time back but I love working with my colleagues, Suzy Wilson and Armand Spurgin. We spent the entire weekend, Friday from 9:00 a.m. to Sunday at noon, with a little rest inbetween.  When Suzy and Armand left, I spent more time at school working on a research project for my assistant.  When I finally got home, I did one of my favorite things, I got out all my Halloween decorations! I do not have very many any more, we sold all but a few.  Those are set out, but I HAD to buy more outdoor decorations.  Bob agreed, so we did that this afternoon.  We haven't put them up
