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 a surprise
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,
