Subject: RE: After the Getaway -- 2013
Actually, any time Murray Callahan sang it was a highlight of the Getaway for me. SO glad to have her with us again.
Yes, the Parting Songs under the trees was grand, with a pair of wild swans on the river and all. Anyone want to explain WHY we were under the trees?
Gorgeous Gary, what was the name and author of the ballad you sang about the Danes smuggling 7000 Jews to Sweden in less than 24 hours before an unannounced Gestapo round-up? It made me cry too, but I cried because it was such a beautiful story of the bright side of mankind's nature.
One reason it was an amazing and wonderful weekend for the FSGW folks it that so many old friends were there including quite a few that we don't get to see very often.
