Far away and long ago, we met Gail and Bob in St. Mike's MD, at an Alberg 30 soup dinner. None of us owned an Alberg 30 at the time but we had all doted on them in the past. We found each other again at Junkanoo, fairly easily since Gail and Maria are about the same definition of tall. One night we learned that at her company Christmas dinner, Gail, wearing a backless (and certainly elegant) gown, astonished the crowd with her rendition of "It had to be you" on a nose flute. Of course, she dedicated it to Bob and we were so touched by this story of high art and true love that she gave us our own nose flutes and encouragement to always play with passion.
