Hi Beautiful People,

I thought I'd give you a break until after bbc's gathering. It was wonderful. We had the most enjoyable time and bbc was a wonderful hostess and made us all feel very comfortable. I met quite a few Mudcatters and everyone was as wonderful as I knew thay would be. That's an aweful lot of wonderfuls in one sentence, huh. Well, there you are.

When I came home yesterday from bbc's I put on my bikini, made myself a few pina coladas and went out on my gazebo and just layed there all afternoon til my honey came home at 6:30. We went out in the kayaks at just about sunset and stayed out well into moonlight. It was awesome and romantic. He missed me ;-)

Ready! August 14th and 15th. Everyone is invited. Hope to see a lot more of you. I just can't wait. I just wish Bill could be there. He says he will be back in January. We'll have another then. Inside, by the fireplace.

Love, annap

It was a pleasure meeting you, at bbc's, and we would love to come to your gathering, on the 14th. Please email me with the address, phone and driving directions from NYC.

Count me in too. If there are any 'catters twix OK and Annaps, I'd love to stop by, share a song or two, drink a pint or two (of your favorite beverage), then continue on The Journey. I could carry one, maybe two, more people in my car, or we could convoy (if you're going). My travel schedule and route is somewhat flexible, but I plan to arrive at Annap's Fri evening and leave early Mon AM. My general route would be OK-AR-TN-VA-PN-NJ or OK-MO-IL-IN-PN-NJ.

EZR, I'll send that out to you immediately. I'm so glad you and Carmen(?SP) decided to be here.

Sam, I am so honored. What a thrill. I will send you my e-mail address right now. I can't wait to see it. I wish I could hear you play it though. Give Bill my love.

We're having another gathering on August 14th and it looks like I'll get to meet many more Mudcatters. It's going to be fun.

Good Morning Everyone,

It's beautiful here in Jersey. Not hot, very pleasant. Glenn and I have been kayaking like crazy. I think I've created a monster. I know what I'm seeing when I look at our river every morning. I see kayaking. Is the current strong? Is the wind strong? Is it warm? Are there many other boats on the water?

Up til now, Glenn saw it as just beautiful nature. Now, he gets up in the morning and looks out the window and says "Wow. What a day for going out! Damn, we have to work". I just laugh. "Tonight, maybe, if we have time from our crazy life." I say.

I'm going on vacation starting tomorrow. I won't be at work for a full two weeks and one day. I have my computer at home and my e-mail at home. I'll post my e-mail address at home to my profile. There are still personal messages for those who need directions for --->

August 14th and 15th. Everyone invited, Just post here and I'll send directions via personal message or your e-mail. Your choice.

I saw some great foods for the gathering at Costco yesterday. We are going to have so much fun.

Love, annap

Heh Jeri! You can give it a try, but it may be dangerous. As Sandy indicated at bbc's, I can do half a roll ;-)

I'll send the particulars this afternoon. I'm having lunch with MatthewB today. I hope he's decided to be there with his daughter.

This is sooo exciting.

Anna, Having been there once I know just what it is goin to be like. Unfortunatly I don't think I'm able to get that far in my canoe even though it is only one stretch of water away. I will be thinking about you and the others enjoying your view while I am playing a ceilidh that night with Sam. We will drink a glass of coke to you Hope everything goes well and give my regards to the others. Cheers Bill

I'm going to miss having you here Bill. Well, we'll have another in January in your honor. How does it feel to be home and treated just like everybody else instead of constantly revered(?SP) everywhere you go? It must be hard to return to normal.

Well, you're welcome back here anytime, you know.

My boss gave me hell for being on the Mudcat too much lately, so I'm going to have to cool it at work from now on. Fortunately, I have two weeks holiday starting tonight. I have a Pina Colada sitting beside me while I write....excuse me, I need to take a sip ............... ................

Maybe I'll go out in my kayak tonight and sit in the sunset and moonlight. Honey has band practice tonight. It's been a long time since I rocked and rolled. Been a long time, been a long time, been a long, long, lonely time........LZ That was for a Max.

Sorry everyone else.

August 14th. Everyone invited. I'll send particulars if you ask.

Love, annap

bbc, the earlier the better. We can start the music early. You might want to reconsider staying. We kicked until well into 1:30 Sunday morning last time. Look what happened at your house. You may not want to go back Saturday night.

I'm not going to be able to make this one. I have a boring company picnic which, this year, I 'have' to attend.

We're going to miss everybody. We'll be thinking of you, sing one for us.

Bert and Tree, That makes me very sad. We missed you at bbc's and now we'll miss you even more. Well, if you wake up Sat. and change your mind, just come over.

I'm sorry Jeri. Glenn came in and we got caught in something else and I didn't get to send out those directions. I'm trying to access bbc's resouce page to get your e-mail, but it seems to be busy right now. I'll send them a little later.

Glenn and I went out kayaking last evening about 6pm and we went exporing and found a beautiful quiet lagoon that went on for a while and came out on the river. It was such fun. We were on the lagoon during the sunset and were actually kayaking backwards to watch the sun close out the day. So quiet...

MatthewB, I would have sent you a personal message, but you don't seem to be in the addresses under MatthewB. Can you write me and let me know if you're coming?

You know the bit..everyone invited.

Annap we'd love to come, but we're picking the kids up in Kentucky....they've been with their aunt in Atlanta and that's gave Karen and I the freedom to be "young" again and take off for Niagra and meet Rick and Heather......but we look forward to meeting you at the FSGW............your presence has added a lot to the 'Cat and Ol' Spaw likes your style and exuberance.

He was outstanding in his field..

August 14th and 15th. Everyone invited.

Dammit Max, I can't go this time. Have a good time. You know, if you string a length of clothesline across that kayak, it would make a tolerable Bass.
