We had all sorts of weather this past week. We had 70-degree weather on Thursday, much-needed rain on Friday and then windy, chilly weather on Saturday. Sunday morning featured a hard frost. We had to scrape our windshield for the first time this fall.

It’s good to be back in my own easy chair writing this column at the usual time. There was no column last week for unexpected family reasons, as the result of which my mother is staying with us for a while. Her adjustment was considerably eased from day one, when the neighbor’s cat appeared …
