Seems my post from yesterday didn't take.

Speaking of takes, I have a different take on Micca's wonderful portraits, Dani. What I see is people thoroughly enraptured while feeling absolutely "at home."

(I do wish he had used the lens that takes off 20-40 lbs and several years:)

Otherwise, I note that we are aging, and that there are not very many people at the Getaway in the "under 40" category, let alone 20 somethings.

Great pics, Micca! Keep 'em comin!

When I think about all that has happened since the Getaway, I find it so hard to believe that it was just 5 short weeks ago! In fact, 5 weeks ago this very hour, we were just wrapping up the Saturday night concert, and gearing up for another 4 more hours of singing, jamming and merry-making! sigh... only 47 more weeks to go.....

Well count me in for 2010. I will retire next July and will not be spending my Octobers in the Aleutian Islands any longer. I think it was 2004 when last I attended the Getaway and I'm ready to try it again. So save me a seat in the bass/baritone section and show me where the really dark beers are cooling. See you next year.

Thanks for the "corrections" and additions, Nancy and Dan ( apologies for mixing you up with your brother again!!), I think people are mostly serious looking in these pix because they were listening to singers when I took them (with one of 2 notable exceptions) many at the Concerts.

Thanks, Micca! Great pix! I particularly like the caption on the one of me and Ron Davies and Ken...

BTW, the one you have identified as "Keith" is actually Pete the Spy. And just for the record, "Mr. Cormier" is Steve Cormier, "Mrs. Bok" is Carol Rohl (she is, of course, Mrs. Bok, but prefers to go by her own name), and there is an un-captioned one of Jon Bartlett's wife and singing partner, Rika Ruebsaat.

I don't think we look "miserable," Dani (well, maybe YOU do... ;o) We're just concentrating on the songs. Actually, this year's pictures (particularly Ellen's) seem to catch more of us smiling than some we've had of past years. A worthy trend!

Ebbie, regarding Barry not looking well. He was mostly just tired, I think. He didn't arrive at the Getaway until the early hours of Sunday morning, because he had attended his 40th high school reunion on Saturday evening, and then driven all night from New Hampshire to Maryland, picking up Tinker in New Jersey on the way, getting lost in Baltimore, etc., etc. Now this is not to say that such harebrained behavior did not contribute to his heart attack two weeks later, but mostly I think he was just tired. He was in fine form after a brief nap Sunday morning, and I'm so grateful for the chance to see him that one last time. God, we'll miss him.

But why do so many of us look so miserable in Getaway pictures, when we know we had the time of our lives?! Usually, it's 'cause we were being transported by someone's wonderful singing/song, but it really does give the wrong impression, doesn't it?!

.Well, I've been sitting here a good three (!) hours clicking on video links and still pictures and having a high old time. It is an amazing collection of a weekend- and one of the best things is that
the faces are relaxed and there. I don't know why it is but in most audience pictures - no matter how great their enjoyment -it seems that most faces look tight and tired and a bit out of it. That is not true of any of the pictures this year.

I did notice though - perhaps with the benefit of hindsight - Barry did not look well. He was in good voice and was obviously enjoying himself. But he did not look well.

The answer is, simply, yes. In fact, one good size human is pretty much good for lunch, dessert, dinner, and breakfast the next morning. Ricky never rushes through a meal.

I once 'wore' a 7 ft. long, 45lb., Burmese Rock python around my shoulders, neck, waist, arm, back to shoulders...etc. for 10 minutes during a talk given by a zoo employee. She* liked the warmth, but never stopped moving and shifting her weight.


*she-- a female python who was an 'employee' of a city-owned zoo... her name was Sybil....get it? worked for the bureaucracy... Sybil Serpent.

LEJ,

I have a friend in Chicago who has smuggled her ball python (named Spot) into several hotels during filk cons. He's quite popular and has appeared on stage a number of times draped around the shoulders of some of our finer ladies. Including once when the lady in question was singing "Trust In Me" from "The Jungle Book".

The most mischief Spot has caused is when we had to extract him from the fiddle into which he'd begun to slither.

I have to agree with Dan. I greatly enjoyed Cooper and wasn't bothered by his presence at all.

However, one dog is one thing.   But if several people bring their dogs it is likely to quickly become a problem. Don't know about the rest of you, but I sure wouldn't want to be the person who decided which one person gets to bring their dog.

I'd like to meet Seamus too, but not at the Getaway. I seriously worry about what would happen if we were to end up with multiple dogs that didn't get along. Not to mention the instruments that currently folks feel comfortable leaving out of the case, on the for sale table, or elsewhere in a session. Or allergies. Or whether the dogs and kids mix (I know what my choice would be between those two)... or... or...

Besides, we don't even know if pets really are permitted at the camp or if they were kindly turning a blind eye.

I just don't think the Getaway and pets mix very well, much as we love both.

Sorry if I sound like a wet blanket. More sorry if I smell like one. And Phil, I was very glad you were there, whatever I may think about pets and Getaways. I loved your song in the Beggars, Tramps and Bums workshop.
