I went to the wedding of my friends Sarah and Meg today. They asked their guests to bring instruments if they wanted, so I brought my guitar and accordion. At one point in the evening, I was playing 'That'll Never Happen No More' on guitar and singing, and my friend from way back Rachel Ede was playing fiddle, and Rachel's fiance Larry was playing guitar, and her old bandmate Bill was playing mandolin, and Pam Murray (who also was the official picture-taker of the wedding) of the Super Chief Trio was playing trombone, and I thought to myself, "This is going to be pretty hard to beat as musical experiences go." (People were laughing at the right places, too.)
