Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
Sean and I worked together at Augusta Heritage Swing Week for most of the last 15 years. For a number of those years we were room mates. I have so many wonderful memories, musical and otherwise, but I want to share a story that makes me laugh out loud every time I remember it.

We stayed in a college dorm at Augusta and one day signs were posted announcing that the college had exterminators coming the next day to spray. Immediately the dorm full of health-concious, eco-concious folkies put up signs on their doors saying "do not spray this room" or words to that effect.

As I walked down the hall to the room I shared with Sean I was thinking about how silly it was. The college could care less what people who were there for a week thought, they'd spray anyway. When I got to our room I saw that Sean had also put a sign on the door:

"Extra Spray, Please"

I loved that guy and will miss him very much.
