Unless someone brought a laptop and wants to leave the music and their friends long enough to type up a message, we're gonna have to wait until somebody gets home and recovers sufficiently.

Well, I'm sitting on a picnic bench at the edge of the water, with Amos on one side of me, and beardedbruce on the other side, and they're laughing and chatting and having a great time. How 'bout that?

"Amos on one side of me, and beardedbruce on the other side"

So what you're saying is that you're the referee, keeping them from getting at each other - good thing that.

It was amazing...this was my 30th consecutive Getaway, and they're all different, but all good. I ate too much, slept far too little, brought WAY more junk than I needed...but managed to sing some, talk some and meet new folks and re-meet old friends.
   Yep...it was ok...
(I was sitting with Joe Offer when he was typing, and I can assure you, he was neither needed or trying to get between Joe Offer and BB...it was just too nice out there for brawls..)

As folks get home, there will be stories about the music and who impressed whom...but one does stand out from the Sunday night concert when Bobert did an intense, difficult old blues number from Blind Lemon Jefferson, (with Leadfingers on whistle and 'ol Lonesome EJ on harmonica, doing supporting little riffs and adding 'mood' to the number)...they just blew the socks off some folks. Luckily, most folks had brought spare socks.

   We also were treated to a preview of Kendall's improving voice and Jacqui singing SO wonderfully with him!

   There were little groups at all hours of the day & night, trading songs and discovering who else knew them.... I started one old thing from an old Hedy West LP and had George Ward chiming in beside me....and George was talked into doing stuff HE had written 25-30 years ago...(like "You Gotta Talk My Language"..recorded by Ed Trickett)

John Roberts seemed to be everywhere, either leading some workshop or just joining in on wherever music was happening. That boy does a LOT of music! 'Taint all 'folk' *grin*...but Good Though!
   and speaking of that, the Utah Phillips memorial workshop was....gee....if I say 'informative & moving', it barely begins to express the feeling in the room as people who knew Utah well & personally shared stories....

More? Yes. There's more, but who can type enough to cover 2 1/2 days of continuous "Good, Though"?


More later....others are waiting to tell you THEIR bits...(some may be posting as you read this..)

Thanks, Bill...

The song "Please Keep My Grave Kept Clean" is so emotionally gut-wrenchin' that I can only do it about twice a year... I don't know how it sounded "out there" but it sho nuff was workin' "up there"... Thanks to EJ and Leadfingers for putting their hearts into it as well...

Having really fine weather made it seem a bit dreamlike. (Or is it just that I had so much fun with late-night singing that I kept falling asleep in the workshops?)

We have gotten so used to suffering cold, rain and wind in order to have Getaway music and great company. This year with the sun shining on the river seemed almost too good to be true.

Ever since my second Getaway (1978? I don't know), part of the magic has been all the people who travel long distances to come, and somehow are already old friends when you see them again.

How can so many people we only see once or twice a year, if that, have become so important in my life and so dear? Tinker, Janie, Dani, Joe, Mick, Barry, Jacqui, Kendall, Andrew and Carole, Dan and Geeta and their little superstar Kiran, are just a few of the people whose faces, smiles, hugs and songs are coming back to me now. There was excellent music almost nonstop -- except at mealtimes, when food is only served for half an hour -- but that's not the memories that come to mind first.

I wonder if it might be a good idea for a clone to combine this thread and Vince's thread so the pictures, comments and memories all stay together?

I hardly know where to start.... but here's a little bit, stream-of-unconsciousness:

First, Skarpi, you were absolutely missed. Next year? I'll keep practicing : ) Y'all others who couldn't make it were definitely felt there in spirit (Ebbie, KT, Allen and Carmen, Marge, Mike...... too tired to remember you all! What would happen if we ALL made it! the peninsula would slip in to the bay!)

Rita's right; the weather made it so perfect; warm sun, cool breeze, sparkling water filled with bright happy boats. What a lovely spot on the planet. And, not having been to West River before, I have to say Ramblewood is a cold and distant memory.

Speaking of Rita, how cute is SHE with the new 'do?! It is so good to catch up with you dear ones. And meet new faces! Clare, Genie, and some FSGW folks I'd not met before.

There were so many young faces there this time! It was nice to see and hear so many younger people who are truly interested,engaged, having fun and slipping right in there! Those FSGW folks I've heard lament the aging of the community should take heart; you're doing a great job passing the traditions.

The music was amazing, of course. New songs to learn, old favorites to share, great mix of workshops, presenters, etc. You guys do a great job of putting it all together so we only have to decide how to fit everything on the plate.

Random highlights: the back porch 'workshop' Saturday night, Barry as Fatima (that giggle sent cold chills down my spine), Dan and Geeta's imp of a boy everywhere making people smile, always the Gospel workshop (where Old and New Testament get down together to ring the rafters), Bobert's Bacchanal was truly... well, there are no words for it. You all played your hearts out, and I just wished it didn't have to end! Next year, on Friday night!!

More later...

Dani

There were a few hours, in the Retreat Center early Sunday morning that I will hold precious forever.

I had to leave at 5:30 to get some sleep. but I understand Elizbeth Laprelle and Julia continued singing until breakfast...
