I spent the day at home, doing laundry, working a bit in the yard, and doing the NYTimes Sunday crossword puzzle (web photo). In the evening Joyce and I were guests of one of her colleages for dinner. It was delightful. Our hostess had spent most of the day cooking various dishes. The food was excellent and the discussion around the dinner table was fun. The hoped-for Bicknell's Thrush didn't appear in the backyard today, so the year's total didn't change.
