July through September,
Professor Jean-Loup Baer and Gary
Having arrived back home mid-July from a month in France followed by
a few days in Amsterdam,
we spent most of this quarter in and around home.
The one significant trip we took was to attend an
80th birthday party
for Gary's PhD advisor,
Gary was Jean-Loup's first PhD student,
and it is difficult for them to forget each other's birthday as they
were born exactly 10 years and one day apart.
Gary makes up a new story for each of these occasions to explain how
Jean-Loup came to be his advisor;
this year the story was that,
as the most junior faculty member at the time,
Jean-Loup had the last choice of advisees.
In dressing for this party,
Gary made a guess regarding what Jean-Loup would wear and tried to
Van Dyke beard,
Bluish sport coat,
Blue button-down shirt,
