Subject: RE: Getaway 2003 Memories
The entire experience was just as lovely as lovely gets. I don't know how it is possible for the Getaway to be such a magical experience year after year, but it is.

The Sunday night concert was a special treat. Instead of being in the accoustically impaired Gym (a terminal condition, I fear), it was
held in the TV room...very intimate and with much group singing on the choruses. As others have noted, the Shellbacks were great additions, individually and as a chorus.

Chivalry is not dead. JAB brought his heater to the "Ladies" bunkroom Sunday night, and then moved it into the bathroom in time for morning showers on Monday morning!!!

You may hear reports of snoring and alarm clocks--all lies!! Don't believe any of it!!!!

Old friends, new friends, old songs, new songs. Such respect for the music, and for each person's love of and expression of it.

FINALLY got to get to know MMario a bit.

Interesting late night conversation about nits, crabs, lice and bed bugs (guess you had to be there) And the joy of laughter among women who don't take themselves too damn seriously.

Can we come back next weekend?

Hogs & quiches to all,

Janie
