Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories
It's hard to retain everything that I experienced last weekend, but reading this thread reminded me of so many. I had to leave songs of struggle before Sandy did "My Old Man" because Roger in Baltimore was in concert about half way through Big Micks workshop. I love Rogers blues. I got to hear Big Mick do Rick Fieldings 'Songs of Struggle",Rita's italian field song, Karen's kids song and Sondra doing The Town I Loved So Well. Everyone was so moving. The night and morning before Micks workshop I was privileged to be in the cabin while he learned the struggle song. What a pleasure to hear his voice as he perfected the song.

I enjoyed Ken Schatz as much this year as I did last year and I bought his CD. How wonderful this young man is to listen to. Nancy, you must be very proud. I have a son who is 24 yrs old, so I know how it is to be proud of a child. Your heart swells.

The Saturday night concert was wonderful and everyone was amazing. I especially loved Lani Hermann's "The Wallflower Waltz". I'm glad Charlie posted the lyrics. I loved Lanis version with the chorus.

Next year I'll bring MY fishing pole and bait. I had no idea there was fishing. Ida been there fersure.

You guys keep writing and I'll keep remembering...

Love, Annamill

I want to thank Charlie, Jennifer, Dolores, Rita
