Subject: RE: B+A's EA Gathering at annap's 6/22
Well, now, here I am for the 3rd night in a row connected to my beloved mudcat friends - Tuesday night at Vixen's, last night for the full record-setting five hours of listening/watching (albeit fuzzily) mudcat radio (Fabuluous show Max, et al.), and now thinking of the gathering at annap's. Oh how I wish I was in Sea Bright. I can picture the scene having spent some time on the beaches there. My sister used to live in Rumson, and we hit the beach every time I went there. Now I think of her son, Jeremy - you may recall I posted that he died in a canoe accident in March near Matawan. A beautiful boy of 25 who so loved nature, especially near the water. He once caught a 40 pound striped bass off Sea Bright and was so excited he strapped it in the passenger seat of his Karman Gia and drove it around like a prom date all night showing it off to his friends. He was never particularly concerned with trying to impress the girls, but he did anyway. So it is with a tender, quiet joy that I sit here thinking about the Mudcatters just about now watching the sun set over the river, the music gently flowing up to our darling Jeremy. God Bless you, Mudcatters, one and all
