Back in May I wrote about International Friendship Day (see “In Celebration of Friends”), and I just realized I forgot all about it. It was yesterday. All the same, yesterday did revolve around friends: In the afternoon I performed on a recital (billed as “The Musical Lowdown”) with bass trombonist Bob Nicholson (my brother-in-law), tubaist Greg Irvine (one of my former teachers), and pianist Fran Gray. It was a very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon. Then Bob and I headed straight to a family reunion party for one side of his (and my wife’s) family. We had a great time. So let’s see if I can remember the next one: August 5, 2007. And a belated Happy Friendship Day to you all!
