Here's the complete text:

This for the friends we had of old,
Friends for a lifetime's love and cheer.
This for the friends who come no more,
Who cannot be among us here.
We'll not forget, while we're alive,
These hallowed dead, these deeds of fame.
Where they have gone, we follow soon
Into the darkness and the flame.

Then we shall rise, our duty done,
Freed from all pain and sorrow here;
We'll leave behind ambition's sting
And keep alive our honor dear.
And they will stand beside us then,
All whom we loved and hoped to see;
And they shall sing, a glad AMEN,
To cheer that final victory.

Bring me my bow of burning gold;
Bring me my arrows of desire;
Bring me my ship — O clouds unfold —
Bring me my chariot of fire.
We shall not cease our faithful watch,
Nor shall the sword sleep in our hand,
Till we have gone beyond the stars
To join that fair immortal band.

—Elizabeth Moon, after William Blake's "Jerusalem".

(I don't have a copy of the book with me; I'm not sure whether it actually names the song there. I call it "This for the Friends".

Somebody else that was missing the Getaway and is also missing from here is Allan C. and Carmen.   Wish they'd mosey in and sing us a duet.

Micca, you missed supper, but I'm sure Mmario can pull together some mighty fine leftovers.   I'm afraid Tinker and I finished of the Marques de Murrieta, but I'm sipping a sweet little Australian Merlot that I'd be most pleased to share.

I was busy singing my little head off for money yesterday at a wedding (Bach/Gounod 'Ave Maria' solo and 'Jesu, joy of man's desiring- Guuuhuhuhhuhhuhhhh!!!) and was looking forward to some good, rib-sticking pasta when I got home. As I reached the bus station, I called Manitas and Limpit to suggest they get the pasta on for dinner.

The bastards had eaten it for lunch.

Ahh Tinker. Hope you are not serious about that 104 temperature. That must be scary.    I've got a bottle of Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Gran Reserva 1991 with your name on it. It ought to go just fine with the pasta, although lamb might be nice.

Mmario, get out of the kitchen for a while and come sing with us!

The Getaway is such a vivid memory that it sometimes seems like I'm there, instead of remembering. At least, that's the excuse I'm gonna use for now for those mixed tenses in my last post.

Just so he's not galvanizing, KT. Not answering your 'pings' either? Wouldn't worry about the big lug so much when he goes awhile without posting if he hadn't pulled the disappearing heart attack trick on the way to Rick's memorial, and wasn't doing the level of organizing he's been up to lately.   

Well, he knows we love him. Say KT, would you look at my back and make sure I got all the food scraped off it? Whoever it was that let fly with that steak, I sure am glad it wasn't the egg/hashbrown cassarole from West River. That would have been like getting hit by shrapnel!

BTW, those of you who were missing the Getaway while it was going on also missed a mighty fine performance by Amos at the Sunday night concert of the song he just quoted.

Not that I am trying to remind all y'all of what fine time you weren't there to have or anything. Gasp! (dodging the plate of half-eaten auroch steaks that LTS hurled at her)

Anybody seen or heard from our big redheaded Irishman?

I was somewhat suspicious when neither he or Dani showed up at the Getaway, but here Dani is, sans Mick. Don't suppose he got hisself thrown in jail or hospital, do ya? I did see he's been hangin' out with that Seamus K. guy some. Hope they haven't up and led each other astray without inviting the rest of us to go along.

Mmario - how do you think a nice Australian red would go with the Auroch?

I did eat the rubbery scrambled eggs for breakfast, though -- I was inured to such things in my years at sea! :D I think I heard Kendall muttering, "Jaysus! How kin ya make eggs tough???".

Fortunately we were all soon off to do better things, like making music or swapping tall tales.
