Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2002 Memories
Another great Getaway! And my favorite of the six I've attended so far. OK, not a big sample I admit; I know there's one or two folks who have attended more Getaways than I've been alive...so I'm a late bloomer.

Made my workshop debut this year leading Jewish songs on Sunday. Seemed to be a success, I counted about 14 folks at one point, with good songs to offer or request.

Had a blast singing up in Mudcatville on Saturday! Oh, and I forgot to mention the first two of the three I sang were my own ("Sedona" and "City By The Lake").

Here are the links I promised. The first one is for "When I Was A Boy" (the funny computer song). It links to the page of midwestern filker Steve Macdonald who recorded it on his "Reap The Wind" CD. I should note that writer Frank Hayes specifically requested it not end up in the database. The second link is to Joe Bethancourt's collection of 873 "Real Old Time Religion" verses (thanks for reminding me Roger; I'd forgotten what the other link I'd promised was! Sleep dep'll do that to you):

When I Was A Boy
Real Old Time Religion

Great to see everyone again! And of course, I hope to see lots of the local folks at the Open Sing in a couple of weeks (at my condo in Rockville).
