I picked up a lot of my friends on a technicality.
They weren’t MY friends. Not at first. The Queen and I had moved from New York City to Syracuse. For me, I was back where I grew up after being gone for seven years. I hadn’t stayed connected to a lot of people when I left. So as Aubry and I started building a life in Syracuse, the friends that WE had were mainly the friends that SHE had.
Fine by me. The Queen has excellent taste. She had many wonderful friends who quickly became my wonderful friends.
Doug Montcrieff was one of those friends.
