Bonnie!! Good to see you!

Rick, sorry Ive been away so much and haven't posted in a while. Your cd and the MUdcat cds were the few I brought with me to WY and the new grandson. MY daughter really likes your voice and tunes. The grandson does, too, from what we can tell. He's two weeks old now!

Lots of Love, Energy, and Healing thoughts for your and Heather. I love you,

Yeah, Steve. Rick sounded great, Harvey Andrews sounded great, and Heather sounded like like the subject of a blues song. (Maybe/not one of Tinker's, although it sounds like a great CD! Broonzy on guitar, huh?)

I always thought it was Rick AND the Beef Bros. In any case, Jed needs to send a shirtless shot in to Mudcat so we can call 'em 'the BeefCAKE Brothers'. Maybe you both could pose with those bow ties like the Chippendales use. Is it getting warm in here, or is it just me?

I did miss the Beef Brothers at the Getaway. Jed was missing. Rick and Mick no longer look like folkies. Even MMario is a shadow of his former self. Alaska Mike helped fill the void. You would like him and Tawmmie, Rick. Big shy guy who needs to be pulled out of his shell. A few Shellbackers filled in too. But we missed you and Heather.
Look at the videos.

Got home from Toronto yesterday morning about 1 a.m. I know you all would like an update on how Rick and Heather are doing so here we go. I asked Rick before posting anything and he said it is fine to let his friends know.

First, he is ever so greatful for everyones friendship and thoughts.

I walked up to the door, knocked, and got met with that smile. Has there ever been a smile anywhere as marvelous as our Heather's?

Rick looks good. In fact, I expected worse than I found. He is thin, but looks good. He gets tired easily, but in spite of that we managed to have dinner together at a great little Chinese joint, and the next day we ate lunch at Murphy's Law Irish Pub. Great conversation with good friends is hard to beat.

In terms of prognosis, Rick tells me that it is all up in the air. Since kidney cancer is one of the few that responds to immune therapy sometimes, that is how they are going at it.

In terms of mental state, this man shows once again why he is a wonder. Rick understands exactly where he is at, and as he said in his letter to us at the Getaway, "No regrets". He is in the fight until its resolution. I am proud of him.

Since I didn't ask Heather's permission to post on how she is doing, let me just say that she is one of the strongest, most grace filled women I have ever known. Any of you that know my circle of women friends will know that that is quite a statement. She loves this man, and is devoted to helping him wage the battle.

Now if I could only find a way to get over there every week for lessons.........

DVD player report will be in the Getaway memories thread.

All the best,

Mick

Rick and Heather,

I hope that you appreciate the power of your music and friendship that invests a dumpster site with such nostalgia! I, too, remembered that little session - I had hope of repaying you for the song, Rick, by singing one for you this year, but Someone had other plans.

I add my voice to the chorus - you are loved, you are treasured, we keep you in our hearts.

Rick,

Susette and I dashed in for a few hours to the Getaway on Saturday. Many folks asked about you, asked if I was in contact with you. I thought several times of the jamming you and I did together, and the swapping of the Gallagher for your Martin for a few songs.
Rare fine moments of musical connection I won't forget. I had a nice chat with a remarkably slim Mike (Big Mick) and I asked him to send you my best.

I'm sorry as hell you've ailing. Here's hoping for some good days fo you soon.

...and as I walked up the hill to the gym at the Getaway, I heard the guitar bit of Pitman Blues and tried to figure out 1) what exactly it was because I had a definite and strong reaction, and 2) where the heck it was coming from. George, on the bench, with a guitar. Rick wasn't there, but it sure sounded like the song made it!

Hey, Rick and Heather - I spent the brief time I was at the Getaway explaining to everyone that I'm a "lapsed 'Catter" (as well as a lapsed Catholic), but I thought I'd better get my tail back on here and send best wishes to you both! Boy, did you miss some excitement, with the British Invasion and Jeri's Stump Speech and Max's Lily and the Madame Defarge Synchronized Knitting Society and other things Too Fierce to Mention. George led the "Occupational Hazards" song swap, and wished you were there to sing Pitman's Blues...

Hang in there with the Celebrex, and keep swilling those chocolate malts - as the song says,

There's only two things I like better than milkshakes and malts
And one's dancin' like the dickens to the West Texas Waltz...

I was at the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals this weekend. I often thought of you Rick. I wish you could have been there with us. You are a hero in the traditional music booster department, and there was a huge lack in that department there. Yes I did a banjo showcase - I think we got in by some fluke or something, but it's painfully obvious that traditional music is the farthest thing from artistic directors minds these days. If things keep going that way, authentic trad music will be totally in the history books as far as Ontario festivals are concerned. We owe you a great deal Rick - we'd like (need) you back.
Me and Kathy will be doing a Ragged But Right recording this coming year - can't wait to use your beautifully crafted leather sign again and often! Thinking of you, Arnie

Most folks are still there, lucky dogs), and if you had a dollar for every time somebody at the Getaway mentioned how much you and Heather were missed, you'd have a lot more dough than you could ever make in a typical gig as a folksinger! It was a coldish, but crystal clear perfect fall weekend--perfect except for those two Toronto friends who weren't joining their voices with ours. We missed you greatly, dears. Sorry for the miserable week, Rick, but dearly hope you're feeling better for the fluids you got. Love you loads always. Kathy
