I keep telling people how I feel that there's more color this fall than any I've ever seen.  My bride tells me that's just the kind of thing you notice more as you get older, and maybe she's right.  But I still feel there's something special about this autumn.  You can see it in the leaves.  You might also be able to see are two gorgeous ladies who clearly love spending some quality time together...along with their lab Tonka.

Nicki is my oldest son's first grade teacher (and let me address the elephant in the room; no I did not trade this photo session for straight A's and his early admittance into Stanford).  I'm looking forward to working with Nicki and Peyton again...I mean how can you resist smiles like these?
