Abe and Nate are cousins, but more like brothers.
My friend Nate invited my family to a barbeque in honor of his departure from Spokane. He is leaving for an extended trip down the western coast of North America, including Mexico, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. I'm excited for his upcoming adventures, but I'm sad to see him go. As I've heard so many times, there is no goodbye. We always say "See you later..."
His cousin Abe also attended the barbeque and played some amazing rhythms for us. I hate to reveal my ignorance, but he has some kind of device that makes drum beats and other electronic sounds. He may record some music for the soul dance.
