While driving to work today, my cell phone rang. Nothing
Lansden owns this wonderful
Anyway, we’ve managed sustain a friendship even though we’re now 3 states apart, primarily because Lansden does a number of shows up here (including the BIG, BIG DC Mall fireworks for the 4th of July) and a lovely smaller, but no less impressive show at Bolivar-Harpers Ferry in West Virginia. And as most people know, I will travel considerable distances to see my friends, so we manage to see each other at least once a year.
Anyway, my joy and glee are now justified as Lansden is coming to town (DC) soon for talks about the 4th of July show and other magnificent things. So I get to see him, sans walkie-talkie and can actually enjoy a real sit-down conversation, instead of the “walk with me while I multi-task” type of encounters that are so particular to event producers.
I just realized, I know some really cool people — you included!
