Subject: Pre Getaway gathering in Maine
From: GUEST,SINSULL
Date: 21 Sep 13 - 12:40 PM

A number of Catters "from away" are gathering in Southern Maine so we thought it might be fun to get everyone together for a night of music and reunions. Leadfingers, Carole and Andrew will be at my place. Claire is with Kendall and Jacqui. I thought that Charmion and Edmund might stop over but I haven't heard from them.

Anyway, it looks to be Wednesday October 2 about 7PM. Beer and light refreshments.I have to work the next day (not likely, I think) so you may be on your own to the wee hours.
Who's in?

The younger boy & I will be doing the Fryeburg Fair all week - is this anywhere near there, and could I come even if the only person I see here who knows me is the Bat Goddess? We will be hitting the Press Room day after tomorrow on our way over from VT, so if Bat Goddess is there she could tip me whether this is a sort of private get-together, & if not, how I might get there.

Carl, I'll email you with directions. Those "harps", by the way, are the mouth variety.

Carl, this is a fantastic bunch of people and it will be truly amazing to have them all in the same room. And they are why you need to pay more attention to Mudcat.

I was actually just checking in to say that next week -- despite the PMFF being over -- is starting to get even crazier for us, with medical appointments, alas.

But I think we need to try to make it -- a two hour drive is worth it, and we haven't seen you in South Portland (not to mention ClaireBear and Leadfingers) for way too long.

Tom has a total blockage of the arteries in his left leg. That's why wounds won't heal. His vascular doc has been gathering enough information (all these tests) to see whether he can stent the artery -- or even, if necessary, do a bypass from the right leg. He's consulting with Tom's cardiologist who, thank goodness, is extremely conservative and cautious. I trust him completely. What they have to ascertain is if the benefit from this (for Tom) very risky procedure would be of enough benefit to be worth the risk. Tom is NOT a great candidate for surgery of any kind. It COULD kill him, but I don't think Tom's cardiologist will go for it if he thinks it's too risky. And the anesthesiologist has to weigh in as well. It's complicated...

Anyway, we will try our damnedest to make it.

Linn

Gee, this is all so confusing. I was supposed to go to the Getaway via Dani's house in North Carolina, but instead I'm flying to Connecticut because my sister declared a family reunion. I arrive in CT Thursday and plan to wander south to Annapolis over the week. It's tempting to re-route through Maine, but I think I'll resist the temptation. Driving from Maine to Annapolis in two days, sounds horrible. Have a nice gathering.

I considered it, but driving up there Thursday and coming back home, then driving back up to wherever to meet Kendall & Jacqui is a bit much bouncing around.

Then again, if there are really going to be 5 people and our stuff in one car, maybe I ought to give up the idea of the Getaway and just go up on Thursday.

Yes, I wish, too, though it would make no sense to go from Rhode Island to the Getaway via Maine. It looks like next year's Getaway dates conflict with something I do every year.

I think they get whatever dates the campground can give them around the same time. Unfortunately, the Portsmouth (NH) Maritime Folk Festival is always the last weekend in September. Last year, I decided in favor of the Getaway. Next year, it will be the PMFF.

More high drama. Freddie came home wheezing, drooling and choking last night. Poor baby was very sick. Took him to the vet this morning and they are not sure but at least it isn't a mouse stuck in his throat. Maybe asthma. Maybe a respiratory infection. He got some meds. As soon as he was home again, he ate, fooled around and begged to go out. I think I'll kill him. With no sleep last night I stayed home from work and took a nap while the Welsh guests wandered the neighborhood, stirred up the dogs and had directions to my house forced on them by an irritated neighbor. They had upset the dog. heh heh

Well, the chimney cleaning guy who, as I remembered it, was supposed to come at 2 p.m. tomorrow will actually be there sometime between 3 and 5. So I haven't a clue as to when we might get on the road tomorrow.

And yesterday Tom was pessimistic about getting between the car and your house...but that was after he had made the long trek (with two stops) into Newick's and before we found out they had a wheelchair available (which would have made that trek a breeze).

We'll see... (Keep you posted.)

Well, lost Michael. He was reminded that he has a prior engagement that he committed to quite a while ago. He'd have more fun with us, though.

I won't be making it either. Too many things going on. Guys coming to look at where I need some home repairs means the fasting blood work I was going to do today has to happen tomorrow morning.

I just have to figure out where/when to meet up with the Kendall, Jacqui & Claire in the Getaway trekmobile.

Sorry I'm not going to make it - too many lighthouses to find here on Long Island, and the weather is perfect. I'll see most of you Friday.

All systems go. Should be about 12-15. We'll see.
I am nursing a hurt leg - fell on Sunday. Actually using a cane at work and the elevator. Getting old and stupid is a bitch.

I asked Tom a little while ago if we'd be there this evening and he's not confident of getting from the car to the house.

So, as much as we'd BOTH like to see everyone, I guess it's just not going to happen.

Tom had enough trouble getting from the easy chair back into his wheelchair a little while ago -- and he didn't have his whistle with him to call me, but I happened to come into the room at the right time. (Thank goodness!)

I just ordered 4 referee whistles with lanyards so he can have them at pertinent places (and around his neck).

Have fun!

Another great evening chez SINSULL. Lots of good music - Kendall did a couple of the numbers he has been working on and he, Claire and I tried out the song we will be doing for the Getaway concert.

Kendall left early - Claire and I stayed on, probably too late, but we were having fun!

It was nice to spend an evening with the UK contingent.

My back was giving me hell. I'm dreading the 1200 miles trip this weekend.

Thank you all especially Claire and Jacqui for getting the meal out and Carol for playing clean up crew.
The evening started with a jumper on the bridge and my aching leg. I apologize to anyone who was bitten or abused before I downed my second glass of wine (WHINE).
Lots of wonderful music.
At work so I can't post much. So good to see Tami, Charlie and Judy and meet Carl and Evan (?)
Enjoy the Getaway all!

Guys came to check out one door and wound up looking at a couple other things. The lab test I was going to do yesterday morning got done this morning. I'm looking forward to the Getaway, if I can get there... and if the flu shot I also got this morning doesn't make me feel like poo. It did last year for the first time in my life.
I'm glad you all had fun.

Wonderful Leadfingers just left our home, having proven in person what we suspected- he is a charming, kind, and talented fellow. Thanks for going so far out of your way to meet and have a visit with us, Terry. It means a great deal to us both. Thank you very much indeed for giving us Sarah Morgan's latest cd. The bottle of wine will be part of our celebration when TrueLove recovers from this fierce cough. What a privilege to meet a long distance friend face to face!

Thanks to Terry, our auction donations are on their way to the Getaway, and Anne Mayo Muir will get a thank you note from us as well. You're a true gentleman, Terry. Please come stay with us another time.

Maeve and Truelove

So I won't wait dinner for him. He can scavenge the fridge when he arrives - lots of goodies from last night.
I will be in bed at 8PM. LOL
Exhausted.
Again, thank you all. It was a wonderful evening. Maybe next time, Maeve.
