Ferrara Getaway 2009 - other stuff than programming (594* d) RE: Getaway 2009 - other stuff than programming 05 Oct 09

This morning I asked -- how come every year the Getaway is Perfect, and yet the next year it's even better? Janie said she guessed maybe we're all getting perfecter? Bruce added, "It's like a pearl. Every year another layer is added." That's right.

People who couldn't get there are always there in people's memories and we reminisce about them (I almost said we gossip about them but of course no one would do that...). Those memories and reminiscences and hopes to see them another year are all part of the Getaway experience.

Talk about seeing people another year -- some old friends were back this year. Pete the Spy hadn't been to a Getaway in -- what? -- 18 years? -- and Al Kehs had been away almost as long I think. Sure seemed natural to have them back.

This year there was a pair swans on the river. Postcard stuff.

Micca I agree, Elizabeth singing The Parting Glass while John R accompanied her is a very special memory.

More later....
