Thanks Davido for checking up on Fred. It's so good to hear he is still with them. Here's hoping we get another picture of him soon - it's been waaaaay too long :cry: .

Best regards,
Mary

Thrilled to hear Fred is still on tour! I did keep a lookout for him on Saturday night, decided he was under wraps because of the rain. :)

FRED! So wonderful to see you little guy! You still look adorable and what fun to be at all the concerts! Hopefully you haven't caught a summer cold, like Leonard. You look like your "person" is taking very good care of you! Thank you Joey for making a WHOLE bunch of us very very happy!

Love 'n hugs,
Aunt Di xoxoxoxo

Oh Fred, I especially love to see you with the harp! Perhaps you have been receiving "private" instructions ;-) ;-)

Hope to see you on stage soon....not replacing anyone, but you would be a lovely addition! :D (and you don't take up much room)

Thanks again Joey...you are awesome!

Hugs, little guy.....and also to your "person".....Diana xoxoxo

Fred, with Joey (thank you) taking pictures of you with a harp, I hope you didn't lose your violin. I was hoping you would get good enough on it to fill the void in the band. A violinist would be nice - no offense meant Dino. My best regards also to your guardian ;-) .

The national instrument no less!!He's bound to be good at the harp as well as the violin..tis bred in him...with an Irish passport and all!

Ps. I loved the lighting on the curtains before Monday nights concert started, green white and orange. Nice!

Wow... that sounds so beautiful. To use the Irish colours on the backdrop! It may not be for a Leonard concert but I feel so compelled to be in Ireland. One of these days! I know you are planning Lisbon, but are you going to another Dublin concert????

All the best,
Diana

ps..I know without a doubt that our Fred is being taken care of very well....plus he is learning new instruments! What a future he may have!
