You will have to bow extra hard on Sunday to compensate for the absence of our mutual friend, who is out of town for a funeral. I would like to try to get to the Obama concert, but it will be late if we make it.

I think I'm going to have to juggle a bit, but I might be able to get to one of the concerts.

I'm looking forward to the possibility of seeing both of you this weekend!

Barbara, we will miss having Deborah in the section on Sunday.

No Steve Lippia for me... sniff, sniff...

How were the rest of your concerts?

Steve called me today for additional dates up in Pennsylvania but it would have been awkward to sub out my gigs down here...so no more Steve Lippia for me either.

And how is Tom doing? Is he feeling better?
