Colin was very happy to be on the grass at the Arboretum. He tasted everything he could get his hands on.

The weather has still been beautiful, so we went to the Arboretum this weekend. It was very lovely and great to be outside.

The apartment we rented in Dallas only has a shower, which Colin did not like. So every night we clean out the sink and in he goes. I love in the photos how you can see the Thanksgiving pies in the background.

Dallas, TX

After a long journey from Connecticut, we arrive to Dallas without incident. We were able to see some friends along the way in the Washington DC area and North Carolina. I suppose the trip was not entirely without incident because we all seem to have gotten a cold. Ann recovered the quickest, but Brian and Colin still have some remaining effects.

The opera is going well and we have met some very nice people. Today is Thanksgiving and it is in the upper 70’s. Dallas seems to have lots of traffic, malls, and restaurants. We have had some wonderful tamales and greatly enjoyed the Dallas Farmers Market. We got beautiful end of summer tomatoes in November!
