Add my voice to the chorus of appreciation for Big Mick and the many styles of songs he sings and plays so beautifully. Also, thanks to Mick for letting three female fiddlers talk him into doing Robert Burns's "Green Grow the Rashes-0" late Saturday night.

The outpouring of caring for Rick Fielding was truly moving.

Dick Greenhaus, thanks for opening my eyes and ears to the appreciation of source recordings. You so obviously love your work with Camsco. I haven't seen you look so happy in years. Bravo!

One of the wondeful things about Getaways is the people I see only once or twice a year, for several years, feel close to, and walk with as they go through life changes. Susan Friedman, please do retire, find a job that will enable you to live in the Wash. DC metro area, and became a regular presence at FSGW events.

Keith Baldwin has a new guitar which is fine for finger picking and he does some fine finger picking with it.

Thanks to the one couple who came to the contra and waltz workshops and danced. It made us musicians feel so good.

Several years ago, when we came home from a Getaway, Dottie Hurley said to me, "I feel like my spirit has been renewed. " Amen!
