The old thread Manchester Mudcat Meet? was getting rather large and ungainly- a bit like Manchester, really...

Have a lovely time, all, and I'll be thinking about you...possibly...

Harry and Sue, and Noreen, I will miss you at this weekend's meet, but we will raise our glasses to you!

So here's to you and our time together
I will share with you a parting glass
And bid adieu with some smile and laughter
Our time apart will be short and pass.

For details of the Meet please link to the previous thread as given above by Noreen in glorious HTML.

As an extra thought, please would people bring anything that they have got which they are willing to sell: old LPs, handmade objects, bric-a-brac, or whatever, to raise funds for Mudcat.

Woke up at 4am with an awful shivering and aching. Managed to nod off again till 7 by which time it was worse:-( Got up took a lemsip and 2 ibuprofens. Been on the Paracetamol since as I had to work anyway. Hope it goes for tomorrow night.

I'm still going anyway but I'll have to fight all the wimmin off so they don't get the ague;-)

As an "outsider" to Mudcat I would like to thank everyone for making me feel welcome on Friday and Saturday night. Most of all I would like to thank you all for the pleasure of hearing so many beautiful, varied voices. Liked your King of Rome,Micca!and Liz the squeak really does squeak!? but not when she sings--lovely voice. I am practicing my harmonies Teresa--but I think the problem I am having is something to do with my brain!!

All I need to know now is--when are you doing it again? and can I come too?

It was lovely to meet everyone on Saturday, and to hear so many wonderful songs. I would have to say that MCFat's choice of the Shaandaar was inspired because the singing afterwards at the Ducie (in spite of the heat!) was absolutely wonderful! The ending, led by Mrs Duck, in a choral singing of "Rolling Home" was fantastic, but everyone there - no doubt fuelled by the curry - seemed to sing really well. It was nice to hear Yvonne's voice, and I hope she will join us again soon. It was great to see Micca there looking in good spirits (and drinking good spirits as well!). Thanks to everyone who made this so successful - and a special thanks to Bob and Sue for making this a great weekend for me. I'm sorry not to have got to the Sunday session, hope it went well.

Got back at 10.15, after a hellish journey in either thick fog (about 80% of the trip) or spankingly crisp starlight, and via Leeds to pick up two new kitties!

As I type I can hear the bass notes of a cat on the piano, I may have to go and close the lid in a minute! They were very well behaved, and close inspection reveals that they didn't disgrace themselves, so the smell in the car was ALL your fault, Micca.

Thanks to Treaties1 for letting me stay in bed so long and for making a wonderful weekend even more fantastic.

See you all soon.

Thanks to everyone I enjoyed Saturday cos it had everything I needed , good songs , good company, good beer, good food (glad you all liked the place), plus I had some quality time with my sproglet. I hope Sunday went well. The bonus for the weekend is that no-one asked me for a train ticket either from Doncaster to Swinton on Sat or from Manchester to Sheffield on Sunday so it cost me about £1.50 return !! If I had tried to blag the fare that wouldn't have happened I'd have been surrounded by Waffen SS guards saying 'Vey're are your papers ?' but I go prepared to pay and no bugger wants my dosh, no wonder Railtrack went bust !!! Thanks to John for the lift and every one else. I can't make Stony as I'm going to Italy on the Saturday which is a shame as I used to live down that way and it would bring back some mammeries oops sorry memories. pip pip James

Well - have only just managed to post now because I was in no fit state to last night and I have been working away all day.

Thanks to everyone who came, sang, listened, laughed and everything else. It made it a very special weekend. After everyone had left the Lion yesterday and just me, Spot and non-mudcating Mike were left it was felt very depressing. But we made up for it by partaking in lots more fine Robin bitter:-) Well, until I fell off the chair anyway, but thats another story...!

Off to the folk club soon and I'll see if the echo of the weekend still lingers.

Thanks again and hoping to meet you all again soon.

After a wonderful W/E I have to add that I had a 'phone call from Jo Kerins - the lad who runs the Jolly Angler - tonight. He is running a carol "service" at the 'Jolly' on Christmas Eve. I said I'd put his message out on the Mudcat. Jo has vast knowledge of folklore; a wonderful voice and is your regular Irish folk singer. So - Mudcatters - here is your opportunity to have your name in lights and once more , put MANCHESTER ON THE MAP.

Wassail all,

It was one of those Mudcat sessions where the room or location was not important. The people there made it what it was.

I met no strangers...just new friends.....If I can convince D 't' Gnome to make the trip I think we will be at Stony.

Love you all...

(specially nice to manage to shake Micca's hand before he was driven away by LTS...I was called into work that afternoon and drove like a nutter to get to the Lion before they left)...

Sorry we couldn't make it on Sunday, but Geoff (yes, it is Geoff, and he says "hi" to everyone) had 2 callouts for work - to Liverpool and the Wirral!! We thoroughly enjoyed Friday and Saturday - thanks for organising it. We're definitely going to get along to Swinton in the New Year - it's not as far from Saddleworth as I thought! Thanks for the invite to Stony Stratford (where is it?) - we'd love to see you all again. Have a good Christmas!
