Rick, thanks for checking in. We missed you hugely, but Mick should be there by now with all the news and gossip and carjacking stories (and a tiny funny present for you from me). He didn't leave DC for Toronto until late yesterday afternoon (our Tuesday breakfast conversation and music-listening session lasted until 1:30 p.m., and THEN he went down to the Library of Congress for a couple of hours--got to play Burl Ives' guitar, among other treats. He called me at about 4:30 as he was leaving town, so I don't imagine he showed up in your neck of the woods much before midnight). Anyway, as I mentioned in another thread, if you had a dollar for every "wish Rick were here" mention over the weekend, you'd have quite a haul of cash. We're holding hope of seeing you guys next year--and Tinker promises to send you video documentation of the "Best Of," so that you can experience the vicarious thrill of being there (not that it's the same as getting to hug your friends, and have them hug you, but.....)
Many hugs to you and Heather.
Lotsa love,
Kathy
