...was in San Diego in 2000. But I did speak to him, long distance, on the phone yesterday. Riggsby never forgets my birthday - and sure enough a card c/w an envelope full of guitar picks landed on my door mat yesterday lunchtime. I waited a few hours for the right timezone and called him just as he was preparing his lunch. I invited Richard to our anniversary shindig later in the month & he invited us to come over and see him in the summer. By the time we put the phone down we'd ruled out the former, but not the latter.
