While one of the cars was being serviced last week I walked around my old neighborhood which was nearby. I had believed that the neighborhood name, Daniel's Park, in north College Park had long lapsed into disuse until it popped up on my phone as a location identification. This was the house I lived in from about age one, when my parents moved to Maryland from upstate New York, to about age ten when the family moved into the Hollywood area of College Park. I think my father said he paid $5,000 for it in 1948.

Sunday, our last full day on the visit, in front of the apartment building we planted daffodils which is a New York custom in remembrance of 9/11.

This past spring I posted a picture of a Canada goose male and female along with their four goslings that were just born in the park. As usual, I watched the young geese grow up over the summer. Normally, when the geese are fully mature they become undistingushable from the rest that this year numbered about 25-30 by the fall. However, I began noticing that within the larger flock, there was often a subgroup of six, and I wondered if this was the same family that I had been observing as the young grew into adulthood. Although I'll never know for certain, this is certainly possible since I have read that the young geese often stay with their parents for up to a year after being born. I took this picture of what I think was the same goose family three weeks ago:

On the last day of a great week, Pam took this photo of the rest of us. She took almost all the photos in this series except a few by Sean:
