Hi, Skarpi!

It's cloudy, windy, and cold here in Idaho. Snow on the mountains, too, but none down in the valley, at least not yet.

All they're doing at Getaway is drinking, singing, carousing, and pursuing the pleasures of the flesh. Neither you nor I want to get involved with that sort of thing, I'm sure.

Besides, I didn't have any holiday time and I had to work.

No, some of us have to carry on while others play. It's like being an organ donor or a designated driver. Besides, if we all went there wouldn't be enough airline seats or housing or anything available.

Perhaps we need some tee-shirts that say "I Didn't Go To Getaway 2006 So That Someone Else Could."

(Tune: You figger it out...)

We are the Mudcat posters
Who're not at Getaway,
We're not sloshing beer down,
We're not on a spree.
Stay-at-home songsters
Boys and girls
Why should we be
Among those churls?
We are the Mudcat posters
Who're not at Getaway.

Iceland, Oz, and England,
Yanks and Canucks too,
Deutschland, Spain and Ghana,
All in the same stew!
We are the Mudcat posters
Who're not at Getaway.

What do we care for Big Mick,
Kendall, or the rest?
Someone has to stay home
And keep the downy nest.
We are the Mudcat posters
Who're not at Getaway.

Soon they'll be returning
Full of tales and cheer,
But we will surprise them
'Cause we've drunk up all the beer!
We are the Mudcat posters
Who're not at Getaway.

Bruce, thanks for the reminder! I totally forgot to give Janie ginger cash, just in case it's there!! Please tell her that I'll take 2-3 pounds and will just give her the money if she'll front it for me!

Thanks!

Greetings from the Getaway.

Susette and I have just returned. The fun of course is still raging out there on the West River.

As you may have seen, the campus is quite beautiful, with river shore and a small bay filled with sailboats for scenary. The cabins are quite warm (good news for aging bones). Each cabin is named for a translation of Peace: Paz; Shalom; etc. There are eight cabins, four on each side of a large common area with chairs and couches. The trees sit in the open woods, some with views of water.

There is a dining hall with cafeteria style food (remember elementary school food?). There are also a retreat center hall with a fairly large common room and a second room filled with Camsco records and the silent auction and registration, etc

You'll hear lots about the music, so my favorites were Sylvia Herold a beautiful singer and guitarist, her the swing workshop, Joe Newberry and his banjo workshop.

More later of course. You were missed.
best chance

Hey! Nice to get word- as I sit here it amazes me how L O N G   the Getaway weekend is, when it goes by so fast when one is home. Has to do with savoring every moment, I guess.

Glad it was fun- as though I doubted it!

I'm working on putting the pix up now. I slept well, in spite of mmario snoring to wake up the dead. I roomed with him and Don Stallone.

Great Fun!

Good one Rapaire, but I don't think you can hang anything on ol 'Kendall--unless his plans changed last-min he's one of us non-attendees.

Of course,never let pesky facts interfere with making a verse scan right...a higher truth.

W-O
still kinda broke but not as broke as I'd be had I gone.

Many complaints of snoring. That;'s one of the main rasons I elected to not go this year. I just don't function well in crowded bedrooms.
Maybe next year we will bring the motor home.

Those looking for Getaway pictures should search for the mountain version ..... "Getway".

(Although, I always spelled it 'gitway' on my postcards to ma.)

Well, I'm back. I drove back Monday morning and went straight in to work. I had a grand time, it was fun seeing everybody again. As usual, there wasn't much down time. It's going to be a draggy rest of the day here at work! Lots of great moments to remember, a few better off forgotten and I hope no videos have been posted!

Sorry WD! I have reliable information that I used to snore *MUCH* worse, before the tonsils were removed - I think the upper bunk was acting as a resonator.

Awww guys...I'm blushing! There were so many wonderful singers. I'm always amazed that I hear so many great songs I hadn't heard before at the Getaway. I've been involved in folk music for so many years - and there are still so many songs to be discovered and enjoyed. Not to mention the sense of cameraderie that is engendered by so many like minded people being together. I'm with you on the duet, Mick. We've got a whole year to think of something good! By the way, I was one of the people in Peace cabin that didn't object to the all night music. It was pretty loud but I went to sleep to the sounds of "It Takes a Worried Man". All part of the Getaway experience!

Some of the nicest memories I have in my life are of tucking in under the covers (piles and piles of them), utterly exhausted, ashamed of myself for quitting while the Mudcat cabin was still full of lusty singers... er, singers singing lustily, and drifting off to sleep to one lovely song or another. Lullabyes for a sleepy grownup.

Glad you have some of those memories now, too.

Dani
