Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories
wekk, Ferrara & I are home, wiped, but pretty happy...we were, as usual, the last ones out of the camp, along with Big Mick and Joe Offer and the Patons and a couple of others (one of whom lurks here but never posts)...Joe and Mick were extremely generous in helping straighten up the camp and making sure things were 'right' before they left. It was a new camp, and there were 'things to learn', so help like that was epsecially appreciated!..(they made LOTS of music, too!...Ya know what?, Bro Joe has quite a voice when he relaxes in the evening, and did a lot more than his camp songs specialty...he filled a room with a couple of gospel numbers...and got one He** of a chorus going. Of course, Mick did too...such moving and beautiful songs he knows......and JAB is a real virtuoso on that washtub bass!...I really enjoyed it in the Carter Family workshop.

And there were SO many more....I'll add other thoughts when I can think more clearly...(maybe about July...*grin*)....Im sure others will be filling in here as they get home and unpile.....

(also...there were MANY pictures taken..I will post most of mine on one of those 'album' sites in a day or two...I will assume that if you saw me taking pictures and didnt hide, that you wont object ..let me know if you feel otherwise)

Thanks to all for making it a great time...
