Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Gatherings SUCK!
Well I'll tell you what SUCKS about some of these Toronto gatherings!

Big Jed and Big Mick doing dishes, making their beds, and being POIFECT gentlemen and house guests......really puts the pressure on yours truly!

Jeri fitting in so seamlessly that two days after she arrives yer convinced she's been part of the family for years!

Alan and Bill S. busting through the back door as if they've just come from next door rather than from different countries and continents!

Ian and Sam P. pickin' and grinnin' like they might on a Yorkshire evening.

Pam and Dave Swan, Willie-o, Catspaw and Karen, and a bunch of others driving hellish distances just for a visit! Believe me, it's a humbling experience!

My best memory is STILL that of Big Mick (on chair) sinking slowly into Heather's garden, while holding his Guild high for safety.....hell we couldn't even pry it from his cold undead hands!
