I never received that email. Possibly it never went out.
I haven’t heard from anyone in that list, except that Bear is on this site and living in Japan and probably won’t make it to the party. I did get in touch with Scott Higgins and he’ll be convalescing after an operation next weekend. If anyone wants to send him well wishes, use HSHiggins@aol.com
One other question... what about Russell’s brother Nick. Is he invited? There’s three other people who have registered on this website and they don’t know about the party yet because we -- as a committee of sorts -- voted to keep it mellow and small. I’m definitely down for that, but feel bad that these other people joined the website and are being left out. Perhaps another party later in the summer for the wider group.
As for the day, sure. I’d love to meet at the school and have a beer / pizza lunch on the slope. We won’t be having the school tour. That’s a paid / scheduled all-day gig. No one seemed excited about doing that. Of course we could check to see if the locals are still jamming pennies in the door locks and just walk in. I’d love to see what they’re forcing the kids to eat these days, and the view from the roof.
Lately I’ve been drinking Gin & Tonics with lime, a good summer-time drink. Amaretto is great on the rocks too, if you’re into sweet stuff. Also Mike’s Hard Lime is amazing. I’ll bring a bottle of Bombay Saffire with the food. Liz, you have a grill right?
Also, I’m putting together a playlist for the evening on my MP3 player. I have about 35gb of music in MP3 format. Any band requests, other than the classic stuff we all listened to back then? Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Cake.
Can’t wait. I’m skipping a friend’s wedding for this party.
Here’s a bird’s eye view of Liz’s place. You can zoom out for directions and locality.
