    The tour is over.  We finished in fourth place overall.  It was a memorable summer, and as soon as I get settled in at home, I'll recap the highlights.  Thanks to all who came to see us.

      If you want to hear music, you have to pay the Fiddler----or in this case, the Trumpet Player

        What a summer!  I started out with a new employer, who sent me to Phoenix.  I met up with foodbme, and we had a great Mexican meal at Nando's.  I joined a tour with a rock band called Dispatch, which is how I wound up in Providence, having a clamfest with WJ.  A week later I was in Dallas, where Twinwillow took me to Pecan Lodge, the home of some of the best brisket I've ever found.
         
        Next day, I joined up with Vanguard in Santa Clara.  More on that to come.

          Tonight will be the first of two concerts with the L.A. Philharmonic.
           
          I'm not there.  I had to return to Nashville

            PP,
            Hope all is well with you, my friend. We look forward to your description of the 'Perfect Summer' shortly.  Hope we can get together soon.

              I'm getting chills just thinking how beautiful the Overture of 1812 must have been with Vanguard and the LA Symphony.

                They were looking to bolster the lower register.  I think the orchestra has two tubas.  We brought seventeen.

                  It was an incredible summer.  Sharing Vanguard with my friends was just the absolute most fun I've ever had.  Great food, too.  Harry&David pears in Medford,
                  Korean pancakes in Portland,   green chile stew in Denver,  runzas in Nebraska, loosemeat sandwiches and bpt's in Iowa,  fried chicken in Kansas,  San Antonio tacos,  NC bbq,  Varsity dogs,  steaks in Ohio,  Yuengling in Pottsville, beef on weck in Buffalo,  great cafeterias in Indianapolis.
                  Now that I know more about what to expect on the tour, next summer should be even better.
                   
                  If anybody knows any 18-21 year old musicians or color guard practitioners,  Vanguard will be holding auditions this winter, in California, Texas and a yet-to-be-determined location in the mid-west.

                    PP:  Seems that you sure did the circuit and ate the right food.  Stop in Knoxpatch sometime soon.

                      Steaks in Ohio? What about the pickles at Katzinger's?
