"Regular" Coffee

Fall has fallen. We're past peak foliage color now with 50 to 75% leaf drop. It is still really pretty, but colors are running to rusts, & oranges without the yellows and reds, but I don't see any brown. Could it be the leaves just drop without reaching the brown stage? We're freezing at night now and only as warm during the day as a typical winter day in the Central Valley. I am even remarking at how "warm" it seems when temps reach 50.
There is still a lot to learn about he northeast and it's inhabitants. I ordered a regular coffee this morning from Dunkin Doughnuts and it came with milk & sugar. I have been tricked before like this, but just thought they made a mistake. Turns out "regular" means with milk & sugar. You have to specify "black" to get it that way! The flock of wild turkeys were out again this morning, an unusual sight, though only for me. They may be out every morning, but it is only Saturdays that I come to work after its light because the gym is not open on Saturdays.
