Good thing you didn't change your Alaskan trip plans to attend the Windspear performance tonight. It is a complete sell out. Not one seat to be had.
—Elizabeth Read

To: Alicia & Charlie Andrews
To my beautiful wife Alicia & wonderful son Charlie Andrews of Hopkinton, NH. Thank you again for my Fathers' day gift, of tickets for tonight's show. Alicia, I hope you are also enjoying your Mother's day gift of getting to stay home tonight. Grandpa Tom thanks you for your ticket. See you late tonight in Hancock for Old Home Days! Love Courtney
—Courtney Andrews

To: Speare Memorial Hospital Nurses
For me, tonight is about Buttermilk Biscuits and Guy Noir. Although I may be missing the spontaneous vaginal deliveries, animal bites, intoxicated college students, pleasantly confused seniors, fishhooks lodged in eyes, and assorted fractured body parts...I am with you in spirit on this beautiful NH night. All my love and appreciation to you all.

Ryan, don't freak out but I thought the most memorable way for me to say I love you for the first time was in front of thousands of people here and listening across the country. Oh, and a final happy birthday to you too.
