One of my closest friends in all the world celebrated his birthday today. Richie, you’ve met him earlier as Zoe’s dad, is an amazing clarinetist, wonderful teacher, super photographer, serious cyclist, great friend and in between is constantly making everyone around him laugh. His imitations are spot on, his stories will make you fall to the floor laughing–he has been described as a walking talking entertainment show. He is also very driven, focused and ambitious with everything he does. We celebrated by having a double recording session, courtesy of the Pops, then back to our house for drinks. Wendy had bought a birthday cupcake cake (check out my rendition of cartoon Richie) and we did it up with grappa and wine. Cheers to you Richie, We love you!
