It's finally beginning to cool off a bit here in Rome. It's *almost* been cool the past few mornings. Hopefully autumn will soon be here. ... Allyson and I attended the wedding of her Italian teacher on Sunday. It was a full-fledged Italian wedding, very much fun, though we didn't get home until after midnight (which is very late for us). ... This coming weekend we're going to Orbetello, a small town in Tuscany, where Allyson has to do some work. ... In the meantime, tonight we're taking the cats to the v-e-t for checkups. Please don't tell them!
