Subject: RE: Lobster Sing at SINSULL's
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 12 Sep 05 - 07:42 AM

Romantic poet Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855) who, to justify his taking a lobster on a walk--on a blue silk leash--in the gardens of the Palais Royal, expostulated: "Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog...or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad."

Bet he didn't know they could sing though!

Well I scanned Mick the photo of Kendall entertaining four ladies on the couch the night we arrived. He didn't feel missed at all. BG

Thanks for sharing the song Dani. Can I have the photo's too ?? Pretty Please ??? I'm really hoping for a copy of Kendall at the head of the table leading the lobster feast.

What a great time.

Two mom's running AWOL
One short and one tall
Braving the traffic jams Northbound and South
Worries and sorrows

This is the song I wrote about being the 'surprise' visitor at Sinsull's.

I don't think I've ever written a song before! It sure was fun to sing it with you all.

It's taken me this long to figure out how to get it off my laptop ; )

Dani


(To Molly Malone or Cockles and Mussels)

In South Portland city
where the lobsters are pretty
Our setting's the home of the lovely Sinsull
She had wine and chili
and cats that were silly
She cried, come in and see Him
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
Crying come in and see Him
Alive, alive-oh

Despite Tinker's patience
and calm navigation
The journey was longer than either had hoped
but through singing and chatting
and general Mudcatting
They had finally, Oh finally
Arrived, arrived-oh

Arrived, arrived-oh
Arrived, arrived-oh
They had finally, Oh finally
Arrived, arrived-oh

Sweet Kendall was quiet
Not for this man a riot
But wide-eyed and startled it's quite clear he had
Expected a Big Mick
But instead of the big man
With Tinker is Dani
Surprise, surprise-oh

Surprise, surprise-oh
Surprise, surprise-oh
With Tinker is Dani
Surprise, surprise-oh

Big Mick would have been here
But swinging in full gear
With golden cape waving he's saving the world
Squashing foes with his right hand
Way down there in Maryland
Crying take that, you bastards
Organize, organize-oh!

Organize, organize-oh!
Organize, organize-oh!
Crying take that, you bastards
Organize, organize-oh!

Left at home was poor Janie,
who, equally zany,
Would quite have fit into this glorious romp
But next time she'll be here
With a cold glass of near-beer
'Cause singing means feeling
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
'Cause singing means feeling
Alive, alive-oh


From Jacqui a sweet kiss
And warm fluffy soft gifts
and laughter: who's dafter? Herself or The Sins?
They're plotting and making
and wise men are quaking
Crying help us, and keep us
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
Crying help us, and keep us
Alive, alive-oh

To Max be the glory
for starting this story
with Greenhaus and others who gave us this gift
Here's a glass we drink to you
May all good be with you
For keeping tradition
Alive alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
For keeping tradition
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
For keeping tradition
Alive, alive-oh

Sent my (film) photos off yesterday, so will prolly have them available on-line before the end of the week. I don't have anywhere other than Mudcat to post them to, so they won't be available for general consumption until the bugs (and I don't mean lobsters!) are out of the system.

Jeff still hasn't put up my photos from the May Sinsull Sing and I haven't sent along the June ones yet, because he's not doing anything until all the necessary work on Mudcat is taken care of.

Don't forget the uninvited guest -- how DID that elegant looking slug get in the middle of the livingroom floor anywho?

Pictures have been sent to Jeff but I think he is waiting to add them until they have got the bugs out of the system.

Kendall had the last of the lobsters, includung the fridge escapee, in lobster rolls at the hospital after he came round from the biopsy. I don't think the nurses there had ever seen anyone eating that particular delicacy as a 'recovery' food.

Yes, sending off Dani and the Lobster Liberation Brigade will be one of my clear memories of the evening. I'm pretty sure someone snapped a photo of Jason will the lobster up on his shoulder being gently stroked and calmed....

Dani and I enjoyed the Captn's chowder the next day along with a side of lobster....Now Kendall I can't judge your chowder against Rudy's (diner) since you "suggested" we add a bit of lobster to yours they were clearly two very different experiences. We'll have to have a retry next time.

Although Mary typed "he" I have to admit we ladies (Dani, SINSULL and I) were playing coaster hockey on our own and Kendall had nothing to do with it..... Well, he did set the example by starting the food fight earlier.... but....

Dani and I had a great ride down the coast today and and I am clearly suffering from a bit of culture shock as I move back into major Mama mode. But life is very good.

Yes, SINS, you really did call Kendall and jacqui that late (early?) to grouse about the hidden cache of lobsters. The look on your face was priceless when you realized Jay-boy was sitting at your table talking to one of them. That's the one that was sent, on its own recognizance, to Gnu, via the Atlantic. And yes, we did take the bands off its claws first! Picture Dani's face when she realizes that she's not giving us a ride home, but to the beach to liberate a lobster. She's a good sport, that's for sure.

The last of the house guests left this AM. I had to go to work. Late night supper ar the Olive Garden where he once again misbehaved but no food fight. Flying coasters at 20 paces.

What a great weekend. Lots of food (although I no longer consider mussels as food), lots of drink, and lots of music shared by a laughing rowdy crowd. Jets' wife Frances was a pleasant surprise - I believe she even made Tinker blush. No small feat! Something about Frances "going up" and jets "going down"?????

Jacqui's desserts were delicious and just right after a seafood feast. Can't say I was pleased to find a cooler full of live lobsters about midnight. Did I really call Kendall at 1 AM to complain?

Dani's poem to kendall - I remember some of it- needs to be posted here for posterity. As does Julia's Lewiston Working Girl song.

Thank you all for a memorable evening.
Love,
SINS

I had quite a bit of wine and something else in a bottle.

Funny you mention blue, Gnu. The one we set free had bluish tints. We do occasionally have red variants in the live population. Also yellow, and a mix of any of the above colors, referred to as "calico". My best friend's dad used to work at a marine research center that was doing a study on color variations in lobsters, so I know waaaaay too much on the subject.

You call that BIG? Why downunder here in Australia, we have LOTS of Big Seafood, including The Big Lobster. We also have The Big Prawn, The Big Oyster, The Big Octopus, The Big Barramundi, The Big Murray Cod and The Big Trout. Rumour has it that there is a Big Yabby somewhere in NSW or Victoria, but nobody has a picture of it.

As well as all these, we have lots of other Big Things here, here, here and here.

Great evening/morning all around! Even managed to sleep until 6:30 (after getting to bed at an early 1:30 -- right after boiling up that last almost forgotten cache of lobsters.

Stopped off in Portsmouth on the way home to tour the Gazela --
Gazela

Then ambled home to rip the meat out of 5 lobsters. Nope, we didn't let these get away! Lobster salad on toast for dinner -- more lobster salad in our future.

More later -- gotta run away to work.

One of the crustaceans got a pardon and was set free after midnight. I hear Kendall has been spotted searching Willard Beach for it, just in case it wanders back ashore. And no, it wasn't the one that kept leaping out of the fridge. That's the one that should have been freed, it certainly tried to free itself enough times!

Thanks, Sinsull, for a lovely lobster boil. We certainly had a great time consuming mussels, shrimps, cheese and hardtack, and lobsters fresh from the ocean. There was also cheesecake, apple crisp, ice cream, and a box of chocolate truffles. Someone else has to describe the wines, beer, and harder liquors.

I think there was singing afterwards but my last conscious memory was of a lobster standing on it's head, or maybe it was of the large one I was waltzing around with in the back yard.

I do hope there were more survivors!

JudyD and I have just finished up our lobster omelettes.

Cheerily,

Wait til the pictures come to tempt the rest of you to this oasis in the South of Maine. Now I'm not quite sure how it came to be that Kendall was being hand fed peeled shrimp and surrounded by half a dozen women while he waited for his lobster to be delivered to the table....but he never complained about it.

Exactly what we needed so very, very badly, provided in exactly the right way with wine, whiskey and song. Dripping with butter and absolutely succulent. ( The lobster boys, the lobster)

Oh and there has to be a song in the lobster that escaped being mesmerized by Kendall (Ever see a lobster stand on it's head???) The poor soul that escaped boiling only to keep jumping out of the refrigerator trying to escape each time an unsuspecting soul opened the door.

Life is good

What a great evening. We're cooking the last two lobsters before going to bed - SINS reckoned she was going to set them free in the morning and kept singing 'Born Free' all night, but Kendall reckoned that they would do better as lobster rolls for lunch.

Plenty of good food, copious amounts of falling down water and such good company and music. What more could a girl want?

God, that stuff is good. Sludged in butter, slurped with wine, in Sinsull's lovely backyard, and finished off with music in the living room.

A lovely time, worth every one of the 1300 miles to get here.

Thanks to all, and please post some songs: like the Getaway, I heard so many good ones, and will never remember if you don't.
