We'll be there, Sins. Need a bed.

The way things have been going, you'll need a dehumidifier even more than an air conditioner.

I'm mildewing! Yesterday's humidity was about as high as it could be without actually raining. Fog, too, especially on the ocean side of New Castle, but at least it didn't rain so we could sing onboard the Bluenose II.

Mary-

Put Judy and I down for Jed Marum's house concert on Friday, August 11th. He sounds interesting, and he's working on a ballad about the Confederate commerce raider Shanandoah that would be nice to hear a first draft of.

I probably should mention that Roll & Go will be doing a concert at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Portland on Saturday, July 29th. Happy there appear to be no major conflicts.

Cheerily,

July Sea Music Singaround at The Press Room in Portsmouth is July 15th (3:30-7:30) -- third Saturday of the month (and July 1st is a Saturday). Our regular weekly mixed sessions are every Friday from 4:30 to 9:00 -- more instrumentation, less structure, more people, more chaos, but lots more variety. (English, Scots, Irish, sea music, a capella and accompanied, tunes as well as singing, etcet, etcet.

I'm gonna stay home for this one. I'm not sure I've recovered from Old Songs yet, plus I have stuff I've put off because of the rain. July 22 is a big 'probably' (depends whether I'm home then), and it would take a restraining order to keep me away in August. Wll, maybe a restraining order and a S.W.A.T. team.

Sins,

Wow...a Catholic flashback.

Jo and I will not be able to make the July 1 song circle. I have my Newfie family reunion during the day and Jo has her 10th high school class reunion in the evening. Not too bad for being married almost 22 years. Yes she is a saint. Miss seeing you and the crew. What's on for August??? We're still recovering from Mystic and the Portsmouth Brewery events. Just think a whole restaurant full of my relatives....wow!!! This restaurant will never be the same. Wall to wall Newfie's...eh.
Hope to see you soon.

A whole restaurant chuck-a-block full of Newfies! It does boggle the mind. I don't suppose someone would consider raising a song or two? Where is this reunion taking place? Some of us would like to listen, and join in the chorus!

August looks like it's shaping up to be Lobsterpalooza '06. Jed on Friday night, marine arachnids on Saturday, Seamus Kennedy on Sunday. Think of the weekend as a weird variation on an Irish flag - two hunks of green with a little orangey critter in between.

Note to all: That threesome will only happen if I get a lot of moral support and people willing to get their hands dirty. In fact, I will probably have to postpone the Lobster Boil for another time.

Seamus announced his concert in his monthly mailing and the responses are coming in - we may need to confirm reservations and limit the event to about 50. If it rains it will be my worst nightmare. heh heh

More info as the day gets closer.

Oy; Me boithday, awready!

Gotta come to one of those blasted things some time, if I can chew off me leash and FIND the bloomin' place!

We're going up to our camp on Berry Pond Sat. - first time all summer due to all the rain. A lot of brush and felled trees to be cleared up there.

Looking to relocate from Yarmouth to the Winthrop area (about 60% of the property taxes here) so this Summer is going to be pretty hectic.
Will be putting these digs on the market pretty soon.

But I certainly do miss all that good jammin!

SINS, I'll work for room and board. I'm good at schlepping -- lifting and carrying. I understand the theoretical principles of indoor cleaning. I'll be your bitch. If you want to have the lobster boil elsewhen, I'm down with that, too. Maybe those of us with nothing else to do on Saturday can organize a bus trip or poker game at kendall's house or something. I suppose I could go home in between, too.

(Seriously, I'm fine with whatever you wanna do.)

I am thinking out loud, Jeri. Just trying to get a handle on the logistics of cleaning up after the Lobster Boil so that guests (not the usual friends) won't be appalled at the kitchen and bathroom.
Thanks for the offer. I will take you up on it. And plan on staying two nights. Whatever happens that only makes sense and we can make music on Saturday too.

We talked about the August festivities last night and Deb and Tom have agreed to host the Jed Marum house concert on the Friday evening. Further details will follow.

We had a great time last night, although Kendall went home early as he was rather tired and his voice amplifier battery died so he couldn't even talk (it was a bit of a noisy evening overall!)

Unfortunately Tami had found a little book of 500 hit songs, published in the early 60's, and presented it to Mary who spent the whole evening singing some of the songs. When they had been hits no-one could say, and why they were hits was even more of a mystery!

Kendall may not know it, but he could talk intravenously... ;-)

It was a lightly populated but very delightful evening. Definitely not all trad. We got a lot of songs out of our system -- another ;-)    -- '60s stuff, etc. (Not just "dead date" songs, either) Lots of parodies. (Maybe that's why Kendall went home early.)

And I was the recipient of a wonderfully shaggy flamingo marionette which I've named Clive.

No one believed me that "The Farmer In The Dell" was on the Hit Parade. I am enjoying that book. It has the same effect as the whale tambourine. Cringes of fear, moans, and then they join in the chorus. But I did find "My Evenin' Star" and "Mighty Lak A Rose". Wonderful stuff.

Great food. Vegetable Curry, meatballs, Chicken with Peanut Sauce (lethally hot as Kendall found out), assorted nibbles and ice cream.

Too damn hot still but at least it didn't rain.

Batty,

I left because I was not feeling well. (New medication)

I've always had a hard time in a group of people who were all talking at once and no one was actually listening. It's kinda like bluegrass music, it's fun for the players but the listener doesn't get nearly as much out of it.

I mentioned this problem to Gordon Bok a few years ago, and he has the same problem. Multi sources of sound are impossible to process, and they literally "get on my nerves" forcing me to retreat.

Now, having said that, when I feel ok, and have had a drink or three, I'm able to tolerate all the noise.

I know what you are thinking, it's my problem, and you are right. I just have to deal with it my way.

You sing & I'll listen. Glad your voice is on the mend.
See ya soon?

Poor Kendall. That book and my insistence on perusing it out loud plus the general and usual noise - well. I knew why you left. I too sometimes slip outside ostensibly to get the cats in but really to decompress.

I find it worse the following morning when people insist on talking at me before I have had my second cup of coffee and restored my ability to comprehend. People who wake up coherent make me ill.
