Subject: RE: December Press Room (NH) Shanty Sing
Missed you, Tami, but you made the right decision -- hope you're feeling better.

My sense of timing or something must still have been off, though, because instead of getting to the Press Room around 3 p.m. it was closer to not only was I not the first there to get set up, but the drummer with the lunch time jazz hadn't packed up yet. Arghh. I'd thought I had factored in enough time for a quick errand (right; the weekend before Christmas) and park (right; what was I thinking?), not to mention the traffic between the malls and The Press Room.

Ah well. It worked out okay.

Didn't post any of this yesterday because a) of all, Mudcat was down, and b) of all, I was taking a pajama day and being antisocial.

The crew was me (Linn Schulz aka Bat Goddess), Ernie Pigeon (NbptErnie), Emery Hutchins, Dianne Lavoie, Jeri, Steve Smith, Nicole Hourihan, Bruce Pingree (general manager of The Press Room), Bill Lehrman and Carol Pierson, Charlie Ipcar (Charley Noble) and Judy Barrows (JudyB), Debbie (formerly Hoar; not sure of her last name now), Gina and Bill Dunlap, Rita Pomerleau and Mike, Barbara Benn, Justine Donovan, and Carol Coronis. Dave Hallowell was there for about two minutes and then disappeared... (was it something I said?!?) Oh, and a nice lady named Michelle who said she'd been to the session before but not for a long time.
