I was forewarned by Andrew and Carole that there was a bug about and I was taking massive dosages of vitamin C. Of course, Gorgeous Gary was also carrying a bug which he only announced after I gave him a warm greetings. But so far so good!

Another group I thoroughly enjoyed was The Beans, for their harmony arrangements and tasteful instrumentation; they need to do a new CD!

The harmony workshop led by The Kossoy Sisters, Julia Friend and Ken Schatz is another recurring memory for me.

The Parodies workshop by Dave Diamond and Micca was hilarious. I provided "Wake Up Susina" explaining that it was the original song while "Wake Up Little Suzie" was actually the parody; I'm not sure if if I convinced anyone but some appeared to be amused.

Elizabeth Laprelle was every bit as wonderful as I remember her from a Getaway three years ago. This time I was impressed with the range of songs she sings. And she did sing "Rain and Snow."

For the Saturday evening concert I led "Bound Away," a Liverpool outward bound song by old sailor-poet Bill Adams which is a tribute to "Liverpool Packet."

And I couldn't have asked for better company for bunkmates; they never made it to bed before 4 am so I actually got some sleep!
