Things went well at the arboretum today. The sun shone (but not too hard), people came from near and far, we had a table in the shade, everyone arrived, and found one another, and I think we all had a good time (although it did get a bit cold). I really enjoyed myself. There was a halloween party where everyone seemed to have cat's ears, but they were friendly and nice to us. We even talked about Mustachian stuff. It was really nice to meet everyone. We will probably meet next in February. Probably the library, since that has air conditioning.
