Pictured here is a (not very good) photo of the Neal/Weedermann ensemble.

From the top: Bruce Neal, Harlan Neal Weedermann and Marion Weedermann. Marion and Harlan are holding what may look to you like a white plastic hanger, but it is really a trombone … also called a 'bone'. 

Harlan loves to play the 'bone'. He makes the sliding tone sound and also the 'TOOT' (always in all capital letters).  It’s hard to get a photo of him because Harlan tends to 'zoom'. In fact, 'ZOOM' is one of his favorite words.

Sometimes he slows down enough to create art. 

Or listen to a story (about ten books a day). And one of the greatest feelings in the universe, is holding Harlan on your lap while reading him a story. 

So here’s to Zoom, Toot, and Bone.
And Harlan Neal Weedermann.
