    I know that ritual well. At our house, it’s the Panicked Last-Minute Hunt for the Missing Irish Dancing ______(fill in the blank). Last weekend, it was the Missing Headband.

    My husband (orchestral bass player) keeps his bow tie inside his tux pocket and a spare inside the bass case. (If that helps.) As for me, I just get to throw on any old all black outfit.

    Hope you got your barbecue. That’s a highlight of Memphis.

    I’m so disappointed I missed your talks in Memphis. I live in Boston, so I’m never close enough to the conferences you do. But I’m in Arkansas for eight months, and I hadn’t a clue you’d be in Memphis till the last minute. So I will continue kicking myself for missing yet another chance to meet you and freak you out by how much I just LOVE YOU SO MUCH! 🙂

    I read The History of the Ancient World – twice. I just finished reading The History of the Medieval World and I’m about to start again.

    But I’m a little concerend in that I can’t find a projected publish date for the third installment.

    Allan, I don’t have a firm pub date yet either, but I’m hard at work on the manuscript and it’s due this calendar year, so I would guess sometime in late 2012.
