Wow.........................really hard to write this one, cause I just know I will leave something out. I have been pretty fortunate to meet an awful lot of Mudcatters, and because of that I have come to know FSGW'ers/New Englanders/Mid Atlantic folkies. To me, all this discussion of the differences is silly. And I thought that the Getaway proved it. We are not different, we are all just folkies attending a weekend. The hospitality was splendid, the carmaraderie warm. This thing is getting better all the time.

Before I start my reminisces, I want to urge you all to start budgeting for this thing next year now. If you start it now, it will be there for you next year............and you will be soOOOOOOO happy you did.

Yeah..........Sandy and Caroline and the session on "....Folk Legacy". I told Jeri later to be sure and plant those memories firmly in her mind. One day we will all brag that we were at that one. Anyone who hasn't met the Patons has a perfect reason to come to the next Getaway. I love these people. Please don't take that as insincere. I truly, from the bottom of my heart and with all my soul, love these people. For fourty years they have shared their music and their love with whatever vagabond musicians (LOL)and/or folks who wanted to be musicians, that the wind blew up. Kathy, Karen and Jennifer are to be commended. I hereby award them a lifetime supply of Big Mick hugs to be used at their discretion. It was marvelous. And Kath closed it by singing a stunning song that I must have.

I will write more later about my Jeri, Tinker, Dani, Jed, Max and Kendall (they are a couple now...LOL), Gutbucketeer, Karenk, MMario, Dick Swain, Lucy.........and on and on. There were special moments with each one. But now I have to run off to the studio.

There has been some mention of snoring in the notes above. I have also told you that David C. was certainly among the more skilled of the snorers in #10. What I failed to mention was the incredible regularity of his snoring. At some point during the Saturday night jam, Tinker sang a song - I can't remember what it was but I'll use another song as an example of how it sounded when unwittingly accompanied by David C.:

"Take this hammer," (ZKREWNORK!)
"Carry it to the captain," (ZKREWNORK!) get the idea.

By the way, David asked me to tell you all that he truly enjoyed the weekend and thanks all for what they did to make it such a memorable time.

I will have to say that I am always a bit surprised to discover that someone who is as good a player as David is, could be as shy as he is about sharing it. He says that now that he knows you guys better, he will let loose with some dobro and mouth harp music in years to come. He may even inflict some banjo music upon you.

It's a good thing David is a sound sleeper - he sounded like he was catching some z's even while we were still in #10 - before moving into the common room.

The "What I learned from Folk Legacy " session - fascinating, well deserved praise; lots of great stories and songs. A case of wishing I was a bit more outgoing in shoving myself forward - Having known Sandy and Caroline for only slightly over 2 years - and in actuality less then a week of contact; it is amazing how quickly those two can become "important" to another person - but that's just the type people they are. And if it hadn't been for their gently but persistantly coming back to me over and over that first sing-around at Old Songs - I doubt I would have ended up at the Getaway.

How could I have left out Shadowmonk?! He's a fine singer, but a truly likable guy with an abundance of joy. Also Dallas - I only heard him do one song in the Pub Sing Workshop, but I hope I hear a lot more in years to come.

Sandy, if you didn't notice, many of us at the Folk Legacy workshop were leaking. If we have to forgive you for such "weakness," we also have to think of it as weakness in ourselves, and I'm damned if I'm going to do that! It's the strength of love that allows us to feel things that strongly, and I love you two!
