After the Getaway, a number of Brits will be gathering at my house. Sussex Carole and Cranedriver leave on Friday so I would like to have a gathering, Thursday PM November 9th, to see them off. Mid-week but it may be your only chance to see them.

Saturday, November 11th will be the final Song Circle of the year. As always, 6PM start with a buffet then music. The remaining Brits should be well rested and in rare form by then.

Who's in? Who needs a bed? Charley Noble has graciuosly arranged additional beds if we need them.

Damn! Because of our work schedule, it looks like we're going to miss seeing Sussex Carole and Crane Driver. (Looks like I'll have to mail the socks -- or bring them along this weekend. -- Ha! Surprise, Carole! There are more moose in your future!)

But we WILL be there on Saturday the 11th and will need a bed.

This working for a living sure puts a cramp in our musical social life. How come we're not traveling by those cool personal jetpacks that My Weekly Reader promised back in the optimistic '50s?!?

"...those cool personal jetpacks "

I saw a news report that there was actually a convention of jet-pack inventors, doing demos and reminiscing. They can fly just fine...for between 20 and 40 seconds...*grin* It didn't say whether carrying pot-luck and a guitar was included in computing the time aloft.

Will the post Getaway (That would be a "Gotaway", right? As in "Gotaway with words, and music besides") also be done up in full costume?

Will the flamin" phlegm-in-gos have to stand outside stock still in the cold to make it look like a trailer park?

Or will the ostriches be ostrich-sized and have to stand the watch themselves? ("Sure, I can see everything with my head buried down here! Why do you ask? Ear-to-the ground and all that.....")

Some have said that the cowboys "MADE their Getaway" (Much like Frank & Jesse made theirs, I suppose)

On the other hoof (or wing?), others have asked "Is it true that aged children should be herded and not seen?"

I'll make it to a singaround someday, but while I'm back at the post office "pushing the envelope", I hope you all have a good time up there and that the pictures from there will be just as damaging as the ones from down here.

Leo - you need to fry the kidneys gently for a couple of minuets before stewing them along with the steak - again, slow and long.

Come to Maine - I'll make a special pudding in your honour.

My head's still reeling from the combination of the music and the falling down water.

Tami surpassed herself with her songs, alone and in duet with Deborah.

Mexicali Rose is working like a dreeam to keep the music flowing and Andrew's own compositions made a major impression on everybody present - that man can write!

We have a reprise tomorrow night, sadly without Carole and Andrew.

Must get some rest sometime - the Getaway seems to last longer and longer as the years go by!

Songs last night were, as ususal, a mixture of serious and silly, but enjoyable for all that, and well done Ranger and Debora for your duetting, I think we can say that you guys are developing a "repetoire"

Another excellent evening of singing. Thanks for hosting these house parties, Sinsull! However, in the future I'm going to avoid shifting from ale to champaine and back to ale. The curry was, indeed, excellent.

Judy and I had great fun in the afternoon showing Andrew and Carole around the Portland area. The weather couldn't have been better, bright and sunny in the mid sixties, and the waves out at Portland Head Light, lingering after the previous night's storm, were simply fantastic. Driving back to the Portland Waterfront I was able to find my usual free parking space in front of J's Oyster House, and we then paid a brief visit to Harbor Fish Co. to admire their tasteful displays of fresh food from the sea, and their tanks teeming with lively lobsters. We also paid homage to the Portland Observatory, a timber-framed octagonal tower high on Munjoy Hill built in 1807 to keep track of USO's, unidentified sailing objects. We stepped into China Sea Marine Trading Co. to admire their collection of fine nautical antiques and other miscellaneous bric-a-brac; Andrew and Carole added to their "fid" collection. We then adjourned to Gritty MacDuff's for contemplation of Black Fly Stout and Best Brown, along with a plate of Cajun sweet potato fries.

We're looking forward to Saturday but are grateful that we have Friday to recharge batteries.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Sins,

    I emailed you directly around 4:00 on Friday, saying that I wasn't feeling well, and would not be able to make it. As things turned out, this was a good decision, and I will try to be up this Saturday.

Glad to see you're still at it; been a while since Aunt Mahtha & me wuz down t' one o' these things, & would love to do it again sometime.

Since then, we moved from Yarmouth up here to Monmouth (sort of halfway between Augusta and Lewiston) at the end of Sept., and our Daughter produced our first Granddaughter, Anabeth Avery, via C-section (the kid was, per family tradition, bass-akwards) on Oct. 30. Cute lil' critter, too. If she takes after her Maw, she'll be a singer for sure.

I'd forgotten what a pain in the arse moving was - but sure got a rude reminder on this one, after almost 30 years in the yarmouth digs. Spend most of my time looking for stuff, then doing without when I caint find it. Havn't even had my guitar out of the case for over a month now.

Was going to march in the Portland parade tomorrow with the 3rd Maine, but vascular issues in feet from Korea '68 have been acting up and marching on asphalt followed by an hour or two of standing around listening to obligatory bloviations would do them no good.
Besides, I've forgotten about half of our fife repitoire, and can't find my darned music book to brush up with.

The VA up here at TOGUS is doing right well by me, Jeri; it's possibly the best thing our gub'mint ever come up with for us. Amazing.
The only hassle I've got now is all the paperwork and falderall involved in applying for disability rating - I need to buy a copier to back up all the documents that have a way of getting "lost".

Do any of you know if there are any folkie things - jams, sessions, whathaveyou going on up this way? I'd kinda like to get back into it if I could. Looks like my civilwar so'jerin' days are about played out.   As you know, I'm mos'ly into the old stuff - early to mid 19th Century for the mos' part.

It's sure to be a hoot at Sins' Sat night, and I'll be missin' ye; kind regards and warm fuzzy feelin's tae ye all!

Hi, all. Thursday's gathering sounded wonderful! I wish I could be there tonight, but no such luck. Please remember me when you start up the song circles again, Mary. I'll be looking forward to joining you. Hi to Kendall and Jacqui.

Meanwhile, make a joyful noise tonight.

We are hoping that there will be a song circle at Deborah's house on December 9th.

WE thought that it would be good to have a pre-Christmas session to get all those seasonal songs out of the system. (And to let Kendall cry "Bah, Humbug!") :0)

Further details to follow.

What a rowdy evening!

It was so good to see Barry there and he gave us good reason to celebrate his presence with some terrific songs. Micca did the third part of his Fiorst World War trilogy and there were a number of other songs from the floor to mark November 11.

Kendall was back to picking and telling stories, when we could get the rest of the crew to shut up.

We went back for breakfast this morning only to find that Mary was still abed. After a lot of searching we managed to find the makings for coffee and breakfast and Ms Mary was even given a cup of coffee in bed by Jeri, who was the only one brave (or foolish) enough to take it to her. That was Kendall's idea but he demurred to enter her bedroom! It was worth the effort as the lady in question joined the throng with a smile on her face, having been fortified by the infusion of beans.

Next song circle will be on 9 December at Deborah's house. PM me for directions if needed. Get your Christmas offerings ready!

Barry did arrive safely, as well as a host of other folks. Judy and I got in about 7 pm with the singing already in progress (retrogress?). There were fine traditional songs, outrageous parodies, bawdy songs, oldies but goodies, and totally incomprehensible songs. When we left about 1 pm, things were winding down to the incomprehensible but who knows if there wasn't another burst of energy after we safely exited.

I'm thinking this morning (safe at home) that some of these folks are going to be experiencing (are experiencing?) serious Post-Getaway Re-Entry Stress (PGRES). After all, why would anyone want to do anything else other than sit around with a group of friends and sing songs all night, graze at the bountiful buffet, and sip various fermented fluids?

Grateful thanks to Sinsull for hosting this gathering.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

This was an exceptional evening. Thank you all for wonderful music and recitations. Thank you Jeri for coffee in bed. Micca is off with Linn and Tom. The house is empty. Now I go into post-Getaway slump. I think I will go and burn the lyrics to Mexicali Rose.

Lovely evening! Lovely drive home today (in nuisance rain, then pelting rain -- good conversation, though!).

Sorry, I've been here (in this thread) for about 15 minutes, but been too busy comparing mystery series, favorite authors, good sources for books, etcet etcet with Micca, while my computer twiddled its thumbs.

Pity Mary didn't burn the words to "Mexicali Rose" yesterday...
