I almost didn't do the Getaway this year. That trip takes more and more out of me each year. But, two of my favorite women, Jacqui and Dani, ganged up on me and I was helpless to resist. Thank you both for talking me into it.
If you are going through Port Jervis, avoid the Days Inn. The bed felt like it was stuffed with old Moose antlers, the coffee was not weak, it was helpless. However, the ROMA Italian restaurant was a real find.
By the time we got to the Getaway, I was feeling quite unnecessary, but, that didn't last long. All of my favorite ladies made me feel welcome, and I have been assured that it's not the jacket!
Amos, I too must say, this was the best Getaway of all. The food was much better, and the weather was gorgeous.
A couple of highlights, I got to meet Larry Caplan, whom I have admired for years. My oldest best friend, Gordon took part in my Spoken word workshop. It's always a pleasure to work with him. It was great that he and his wife, Carol, were able to attend.
Friday evening was a hoot,I forgot that I can no longer sing, but it sure was fun trying.When you have Amos, Big Mick and Sara Grey around you, you can't just sit there and absorb.
Tinker saved my life again with her massage. My back is older than I am but she always brings it back to life. Thank you, Luv.
We came away from home without my bedding, but another of my sweet ladies, Caroline Paton, had a quilt to spare. All I have to do is look helpless and what I need comes from somewhere every time.
So many people that I like and admire were there, Gordon and Carol, Larry Caplan, Bob Zentz, Ed Trickett,Danny Black,Amos, Big Mick, I knew I shouldn't start this list, too many to count.
There are many others, and YOU are among them.
I'm still not "back to battery" so my head is not clear yet.
I should go back to bed. Sorry about the length of this blather.
