Lance, I'm happy to see that the stars are lining up to celebrate your birthday - one of the youngest "senior citizens" I know - and still full of youthful energy and enthusiasm. Music, the piano, desktop publishing, your always interesting radio programs - forty-one years, and finally available online around he world!- and just an all-round treasured friend and example. Many more, Lance!

Dear Lance,

I wish I could produce another fabulous birthday cake and a bottle of chilled Veuve Cliquot for this special occasion, at least virtually. Sad to say, I don't know how. So you will have to accept the thought for the act. Have a wonderful birthday, and do something really unusual, like attending a very special concert, preceded by a great dinner, of course!

All good wishes for many delightful years ahead! Evelyn

Happy Birthday, Lance! I tried to order you a brand new Steinway D, but it was a bit over my credit limit! :D

Well, I must say, it has been QUITE a day. The Mrs. took me to a lovely dinner (ravioli and a super sauce and two meat "logs"), lovely salad, a bottle of Sharps and I was amazingly content. My sister arrived from Atlanta and tomorrow we continue the celebration. A group of musical friends and people whose pianos I take care of are putting on a party Monday night at 7:00 p.m. My daughter will be coming in from NYC, and we expect 23 or 24 people altogether. There will no doubt be music. (I tuned the hostess's Baldwin grand late yesterday). We only hope for good weather with no rain.

I am overwhelmed with the messages on this thread. You are all absolutely wonderful folks. It is people like you who make running this site a distinct pleasure!

Thank you, one and all!

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS, LANCE!!!

Yes, I know I'm late, but weddings have a way of doing that. Surely a few days can make little difference between friends? :?

Although I know I should post this in a different thread, here's my little 'present' to you. Justin in CA just discovered for me a Hamburg Steinway A, 1985, for around $30,000. THAT'll get your creative piano juices going. Hmm ... bi-coastal pianos? Sigh. So silly. So tempting. So Sue
