"Thank you, Howard, for a simply wonderful performance last Sunday. You made my day! Nearly everyone commented how good you were and what a superb voice you have. Since many of the guests were members of my tennis club, they have been asking if we can get you back to play there - so you will almost certainly hear from me again. I was also very impressed by the way you braved the elements and insisted on remaining outside under the gazebo with the wind howling around you and rain imminent. You're a tough guy!! Very well done, Howard, and all best wishes!".
