Today is Marcia Pierce's birthday! The Barrayaran Imperial Academy's
marching starts out its review with a modest selection of 76 trombones (one
for each year of Ms. Pierce's life). The others come-the trumpets, the
saxophones, and even a few stout Sousaphones (which are called Emperor
Trumpets here) complete the brass section, and then come the drums right
after the horse units. (the bass drum people always have someone to tell
them where to step, because Horses Are Like That). Marcia, you are sitting
right by Emperor Gregor in honor of your day. After the parade, you and the
Emperor retire to the Palace for a small tea hosted by Lady Alys (and
catered by Ma Kosti. 


Happy Birthday!
