Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories
You know, it occurs to me as read all my friends comments here that some of the greatest moments spent were music related only in that music is what brought us together. The time I spent, brief though it was, fishing with Dan Milner is precious to me. There is something about quietly sharing a body of water with a friend, a couple of Yuenglings and a bunch of fish that cannot be described. Sitting at the table with Sandy while he talks about people he has known, songs he has sung, etc., is just too special to describe. The welcome hugs on Saturday morning from Kath Westra, Jeri, Jenny, Dani, Jennifer Woods, Bill D, Barry, Folk1234, Joe Offer, Max, Caroline and all were special. One of the best moments came for me when I found the young boy who didn't get a pennywhistle last year because I ran out. I let him have first pick this year from the load that I brought, and damned if he didn't pick out the best sounding one. Never mind how I know, I just do. And he told his Mom that he was happy I hadn't forgot. Special moment. Then the rest of those little folk gangsters just cleaned out that pile of whistles. Lot of fun.

Yep, this gathering is something very special. SPECIAL REQUEST FROM THE BIG MICK: As many of you as possible start to make plans now for next year. Sock a little away beginning now, and reserve some time off for this wonderful coming together of good people and great musicians and singers. You will never regret it.
