Well, here's a glass to them. If I let myself think about how much fun they're having, moving from circle to circle, singing good old songs with good old friends, the whole weekend to look forward to of same......

.... well, let's drink one for them, then one for us on the homefront. I miss you all.

I'm sipping my wine and wishing that I was there. I came home from Virginia with the prospect of lots of music this weekend in VT and it's fading away. Makes me even more mournful. Ah well, the cat is darned glad to see me, and it is nice to think of everyone singing, planning another evening event, laughing a lot and eating that pretty awful food.

Next year without fail. I'll drink to that.

Here it is a magnificent fall day, warm in the sun, chilly in the bright dappled shade. I hope it is the same there as well, and that you all are outside singing at the top of your lungs.

I love that part of the Getaway day when you rinse your mug of coffee and fill it with ______ instead, then walk around to see what's happening where. That will be the part of my day today I sing and think of you all.

I'm picturing all of you together, many reunited after a long year apart, good food, great spirits, and the wonderful camaraderie that can only be achieved through voices raised together in song. Have a splendid day!

Think I'll grab Ebbie and raise a pint of Latte in your honor. (It's early here.)

I hope their weather is better than ours. Hurricane gust winds, heavy rain, expected power outages. I picked up Seamus to keep him for a night or two. Poor baby was so glad to see me and even gladder to see the bed set up in the sunroom. He ate some snacks, pooped, and has settled down for a long nap.
By the way, HE STINKS!

I bought a split of champagne to toast the Getawayers tonight. And i hit the Christmas Tree Shop for IN THE PINK goodies.

Hot apple cider with a shot of rum for me please. And a banjo tune from someone...

Maybe the bartender has some good doggie snacks for Seamus. My two would enjoy the treat as well. I left them in the yard, but if dogs can come into the tavern, these two would love a go at the jello pit. . . better caution the ducks and cats to head for the rafters.

Well, yes, I'm missing the Getaway because I decided to go to NOMAD instead.
I'm missing NOMAD because its a long way, and I might rather go to the Peterboro dance, and besides I have a rehearsal tomorrow.
But now I'm missing the dance because who wants to drive down there in this stupid Hurricane?

But it could be worse : I did get out Thursday and Friday!

I just got off the phone with Jacqui (who passed me to Tinker, who passed me to Micca, who passed me back to Jacqui). I didn't get a whole lot of information other than 1) Micca was writing a song with Songbob, and 2) Jacqui was eating ham while Micca was mostly eating some mashed potatoes. They all seemed to be having fun, the bastards.

Next year! People of the Getaway, I SHALL return!

Time to open the champagne. Seamus shared the bed with two kitties tonight. Very cute. But they too keep sniffing him and looking with pure disgust. Of course, that's normal.

By now they have eaten and drunk and gone to change for the concert. Are they having this wind and rain, Jeri? Gusts to 70 mph. Great! I went out and talked to my tree begging it to hang on tight.
Now some bubbly...
But I will put the bottle in a brown paper sack in respect for the camp policies.

Well, I miss 'em but I am going to the Montpelier dance, so all is not lost, and tomorrow i'll play some Irish music, but no singing, Ah me, no singing here and I miss all of those silly wonderful people. Next year without fail. I'd raise a glass, but I'd gurgle at the dance. I'll have a bit of wine when I come home, just to slow down, and will check in to see how all of us are doing.

Glad to hear about that paper bag Mary.   Still thinking of how I might get myself over to Maine next weekend, but I don't think the cat would forgive me after two and a half weeks away, with another week off in the wilds of DC coming up.

NEXT YEAR. Drink a toast to THAT!!

Now for the glass of wine. My feet are tired from dancing and the music was great, but I miss the singing

That was the Getaway
We'd sing till break of day
Sea songs and ballads, oldies and much more
We'd pass the songs about
Nothing could drown us out
Until they'd fall asleep and they would SNORE!!


Now I must admit, that I don't miss. I bet they are raising the rafters even as I curl up with my quiet glass of wine.

Yesterday I snuck out of the tavern long enough to march with my daughter's drum crew in a parade on a gorgeous Autumn morning... what fun! And then last night other daughter and I attended the premier of AC Bushnell's new CD and DVD, "Following the Road". There was the most intriguing collection of musicians there to celebrate AC's music and life. My friend produced the movie about AC and the making of this album, it is a terrific story, and the music was just amazing. I'd always heard the term 'inexpressible joy'. What AC has is 'EXPRESSIBLE joy'. Here's a little about it:

http://www.indyweek.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid%3A163292

You old-time musicians may appreciate the picture of a stage filled at the end with almost 20 musicians (4 banjos, electric guitar and bass, mandolins, drums, more I can't remember) on the world's craziest version of "Cluck Old Hen" as the audience went wild with clapping and stomping.

So, now we rinse out the whiskey and fill the mugs with coffee, the better to prepare for the Gospel Workshop I love so well. AC sang this last night, and I just love it. Join me?

When I go, don't cry for me
In my Father's arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole.
Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed
For my Savior knows my name.

It don't matter where you bury me,
I'll be home and I'll be free.
It don't matter where I lay,
All my tears be washed away.

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store,
Come and drink, and thirst no more

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

So, weep not for me my friends,
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to Him
Who will raise the dead again.

It don't matter where you bury me,
I'll be home and I'll be free.
It don't matter where I lay,
All my tears be washed away.

HMmmmmmmm... thinks to self... wonder what the ginger rum would taste like warmed a little?

Further thinks to self... wonder what my gin would taste like with a little drop of rose hip syrup in it?

Final thinks to self... today could just vanish in an alcoholic haze if I'm really lucky!

Then I won't be bothered by Manitas staggering in at whatever time tonight because he's off at a session that started an hour ago and has no set finishing time.

It's an orgy of non-stop sex, whiskey, sex, whisky, sex, filthy songs, and the devil running up and down the aisle learning new things. Everyone who goes to Getaway will be damned eternally (see Dante's "Inferno" and Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God" for descriptions).

Oh, if only they would, or could, repent!











A nice hot buttered rum, please. And then I have to pay some bills and cut the grass and put the mower away and break out the snowblower.

So, I knew about the whiskey and filthy songs, but no one told me there was SEX at the Getaway!! Guess I was always in the wrong cabin ; )

"the devil running up and down the aisle learning new things"

Last time I was in Toronto, I bought some lovely Indian 'rhum'. You mix it with heavy cream and a bit of sugar and put it on berries. Well, that's in the summer. In the winter, you think about it after you've had your cholesterol test and are eating oatmeal and listening to Mr North Wind roar around the house like he got hold of some bad acid.

Can't make up my mind - cocoa with Frangelico or Alba's mulled cider? I might have to wait until after noon...

(Is it too early in the year for egg nog? That's breakfast in a glass!)

Cherry turnover and a mug of strong coffee with cream here.
If I can get the energy, I must also mow one last time, mulching all those leaves instead of raking.
I am far too far away to hear any melodies on the breeze from the East coast, but I'm sure they are all having a great time, as usual!
I went back to work this week after the hospitalization for pleurisy and pneumonia. I'm trying to take it easy so I don't relapse. Hopefully someone else will mow for me.

If the assembled talent here in the tavern had sung to each other rather than complain about missing The Getaway, you'd have come close to matching what we had going. I've actually had the privilege of hearing a lot of you.

If each of you had picked and posted a favorite song for the tavern, the Getaway attendees could come back to a whole lot of things they wish they'd heard or sung where we were and be envious of YOU. Except, of course, the few with laptops who strangely go missing for a spell that could have learned one of YOUR songs by Sunday or at least sung it off of a sheet they'd claimed they had with them all along. By the following year, you could even do workshops in here!.

SINSULL had the right idea by sending something down to be sung. The Peter Kagan & The Wind" parody spoken and sung by Gordon Bok himself in front of an audience that included its subjects Kendall & Jaqui came off wonderfully. You should've been there, yes, but the fine bunch in here was missed, as well, in the fleeting moments we all took to do so. Your spirits were among us.


Nothing, of course would be like having had you all at West River....

Anybody seen or heard from our big redheaded Irishman?

I was somewhat suspicious when neither he or Dani showed up at the Getaway, but here Dani is, sans Mick. Don't suppose he got hisself thrown in jail or hospital, do ya? I did see he's been hangin' out with that Seamus K. guy some. Hope they haven't up and led each other astray without inviting the rest of us to go along.

Mmario - how do you think a nice Australian red would go with the Auroch?

BTW, those of you who were missing the Getaway while it was going on also missed a mighty fine performance by Amos at the Sunday night concert of the song he just quoted.

Not that I am trying to remind all y'all of what fine time you weren't there to have or anything. Gasp! (dodging the plate of half-eaten auroch steaks that LTS hurled at her)

The Getaway is such a vivid memory that it sometimes seems like I'm there, instead of remembering. At least, that's the excuse I'm gonna use for now for those mixed tenses in my last post.

Just so he's not galvanizing, KT. Not answering your 'pings' either? Wouldn't worry about the big lug so much when he goes awhile without posting if he hadn't pulled the disappearing heart attack trick on the way to Rick's memorial, and wasn't doing the level of organizing he's been up to lately.   

Well, he knows we love him. Say KT, would you look at my back and make sure I got all the food scraped off it? Whoever it was that let fly with that steak, I sure am glad it wasn't the egg/hashbrown cassarole from West River. That would have been like getting hit by shrapnel!

Ahh Tinker. Hope you are not serious about that 104 temperature. That must be scary.    I've got a bottle of Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Gran Reserva 1991 with your name on it. It ought to go just fine with the pasta, although lamb might be nice.

Mmario, get out of the kitchen for a while and come sing with us!

I was busy singing my little head off for money yesterday at a wedding (Bach/Gounod 'Ave Maria' solo and 'Jesu, joy of man's desiring- Guuuhuhuhhuhhuhhhh!!!) and was looking forward to some good, rib-sticking pasta when I got home. As I reached the bus station, I called Manitas and Limpit to suggest they get the pasta on for dinner.

The bastards had eaten it for lunch.

Somebody else that was missing the Getaway and is also missing from here is Allan C. and Carmen.   Wish they'd mosey in and sing us a duet.

Micca, you missed supper, but I'm sure Mmario can pull together some mighty fine leftovers.   I'm afraid Tinker and I finished of the Marques de Murrieta, but I'm sipping a sweet little Australian Merlot that I'd be most pleased to share.

Here's the complete text:

This for the friends we had of old,
Friends for a lifetime's love and cheer.
This for the friends who come no more,
Who cannot be among us here.
We'll not forget, while we're alive,
These hallowed dead, these deeds of fame.
Where they have gone, we follow soon
Into the darkness and the flame.

Then we shall rise, our duty done,
Freed from all pain and sorrow here;
We'll leave behind ambition's sting
And keep alive our honor dear.
And they will stand beside us then,
All whom we loved and hoped to see;
And they shall sing, a glad AMEN,
To cheer that final victory.

Bring me my bow of burning gold;
Bring me my arrows of desire;
Bring me my ship — O clouds unfold —
Bring me my chariot of fire.
We shall not cease our faithful watch,
Nor shall the sword sleep in our hand,
Till we have gone beyond the stars
To join that fair immortal band.

—Elizabeth Moon, after William Blake's "Jerusalem".

(I don't have a copy of the book with me; I'm not sure whether it actually names the song there. I call it "This for the Friends".
