I saved several of Mike's pics with MW Snap...I can usually figure out how to dig the URL from that mess they hide it in, but I didn't go to 'view source' this time, as it was easier to just grab it and edit it the easy way...MWSnap and it's payware cousin, SnagIt are treasures in situations like this.

Nutty, sorry. I SWEAR it wouldn't let me right-click and 'save as' last night. It doesn't now, from both the thumbnail page and the big picture page. It's a lot less complicated than what I did to save a few of the pictures!

Yes Jeri ...admittedly the pics do stay small but you can play around with them in a photo/paint program.

Alternatively, you can lift the whole (large) picture off the screen using a program like MWSnap3 (a free download), copy it into a word processor prog and print it out. That only takes a few moments as well.

Another way, that works on most later Windows verstions is to press ALT and PRINT SCREEN at the same time. This puts the image on your clipboard, and you can then paste it into whatever program you wish.

Nutty, it won't work with Mike's photos. I don't think they want you to copy them.

You have to click on the little photo to get the big photo, then go to 'view source' and find out the URL of the photo.

Finding the URL in all that other crap is the hard part. Scan for the section that has a bunch of indents, and it's the part that says "http://-and-a-huge-bunch-of-numbers-and-stuff"

You then copy and paste that into your browser's address window. When THAT page comes up, you can right click and select "save as."

Pauline .... you create a file, on your computer, to hold the photos ..... then ......
Right click on the photo you want to save and from the menu shown, click on "save image as" ..........
a save box will appear, so you can then save the image in the normal way to the file you have created.

That's how I do it anyway and it works fine.

Given that I have already stepped up, or more appropriately, laid down, in this venture, I think it only fair that if Noreen is going to show anyone her backside, it should be meself. (Howzat fer a sentence, Paw?)

Unfortunately, I came home to a battle and have been on the road almost constantly. I will post my recollections when I get to my own, cookie bearing, computer at home.

The Getaway was a real blast - so many wonderful memories. Both the big performances and the small intimate song swaps, the unaccompanied close harmony singing and the music. Wow!   
A big thanks to everyone involved in organising it and to all those who attended - so many new friends.
I hope it will only prove to be my first visit!

Getaway Lost and Found Update

What with many visitors from England, our usual confusion reigned at the end of the weekend at Camp Ramblewood, and some stuff didn't make it home to the right places:

Reported Lost

1)        mattress pad (Cabin I) (Fred and Janet Stollnitz)
2)        a long, narrow electric heater that sat in the TV room against the wall all weekend (Bill Day)
3)        Did anyone find a jacket in shades of purple with giraffes on the pocket and back? Left it behind by mistake. (Sinsull/Mary Sullivan)
4)        pillows, comforter, blue sleeping bag (Carly Gewirz and Dean Clamons)

Reported Found (and currently with Carly, Knitpick, or Charlie Baum)

1) navy-blue sweat shirt from Old Navy; "B-Sled" and "Trials" on front, size XL
2) 2 blankets
3) fluffy rust and gold and orange throw (probably mohair)
4) cotton quilt (blue on blue with cornflowers and stripes)
5) fitted sheet, solid color, blue-green (at Carly's)
6) fluffy throw, bound edge with cats, black and mauve and grey
pillows with flowered ticking

Besides the above stuff, more stuff is probably at the Cooks' house.

If you've found any of the lost stuff, or if any of the found items sounds familiar, or you have additions to this list, you can add them here or send me a PM or give me a phone call.

Thanks Ron. I was writing it and thought it started out like a serious ghost story sort of song. Still could be, if I could manage to figure out how to make a silly believable. Need to watch more X-Files re-runs.

I love the Cicada Seranade, and I'm sorry I missed it. Part of the reason I love these after-action reports so much is to hear about all the great stuff I missed. There is an entomologist who comes to our sessions who's gonna LOVE that!

Sandy, one of the things that will stand out in my mind is hearing you and Elizabeth in the Fri night sing-around, and wondering "Who the heck ARE those people?! They're GOOOOOD!" Your spot-on harmonies and Elizabeth's incredibly strong, clear singing were one of the pleasant surprises that make me treasure events like the Getaway. Elizabeth seems to have a lot of self-confidence in singing her own songs in her own voice, she pulls it off as if she's already had a long career performing, and I hope to hear a lot more of her. I like James Taylor too. It's OK to stick a JT song in here and there. Those two ballads at the end of the mini-concert, however, just blew me away, and I'm thankful you did both of the requests instead of picking just one.

Well we finally made it back to Anchorage. Three weeks in the motorhome we saw New York City, Philidelphia, Valley forge, Amish country, Gettysburg, Washington D.C., Martin Guitar factory, Old Sturbridge Village, sharing music and lobsters with Kendall and Sinsull in Maine, Plymouth Plantation, Cape Cod, New Bedford Whaling museum, and Mystic Seaport. But the absolute highlight of our trip was the three days we spent with our many new friends singing songs and sharing stories at the FSGW Getaway. I promise to go through my hundreds of pictures and send some in to Pene Azul for publication in Mudcat's events photos. But I need to get some sleep. Bye for now.

No question in my mind--this Getaway was by far the best I've ever been to. Last year was great too, especially with Rick Fielding--as has been said, he was really missed --still would especially love to hear again his song about going to school.

But this year--as I was just saying to Bill Day, the incredible array of stars in the firmament, stars we had never seen before, was stunning. Elizabeth LaPrelle--the perfect keening mountain voice, Alaska Mike, joining the pantheon of Gordon Bok, Utah Phillips, Eric Bogle (and others) with so many well-crafted songs recently written (say in the last 40 years) but solidly "in the tradition", and of course the incomparable Shellbacks, individually, and in small groups,(just loved all the music hall songs,for instance, especially the ones I didn't know) as well as the massed group. As I said elsewhere, the only thing that can compare is the Middle Bar at Sidmouth, which is in fact where I met AlanWW.

And to have our own US leaders( i.e song-leaders)also, like Barry and Mick, was just the perfect complement. Particularly in the after-hours sessions, the cross-pollination was just wonderful. Mudcat contributors have revitalized the FSGW Getaway to an incredible extent. It is so great to hear songs we don't sing much or at all here or other versions of those we do. And we all, coming from so many different places and backgrounds, seem to really appreciate each other's contributions. I suppose it must be since we all have such a passion for music.   

And even definitely unplanned events (certain to go into the lore of the group. and which people without access to Mudcat would likely miss entirely,) like Jeri's stump incident, add yet another dimension. I am really impressed with the quality of the "stump-workshop" contributions---actually I think the one Jeri did herself is definitely one of the best, but they're all damn good.


The only other thing I wanted to say was a small correction of the "Cicada Serenade" as posted. I'm sure the Pheremones would want their first posting on Mudcat to be as accurate as possible. The posting was exactly as I sent it to Clayton, except one line (of course I can't make claims to 100% accuracy--I just transcribed it off a tape I borrowed.) But the last lines are:

So eat your cicadas with every snack
Cause they can also help you say "no" to crack

I didn't see the actual grounding of Jeri's vessel, so, can't really picture the rescue. But, Stan Rogers' song The Rocks Of Baccaloo came to mind. If someone wants to add to it, ok.

She was bound home in October,
From that folkie getaway
Trying to make the Jersey turnpike before dark,
But she tried to take a shortcut
And fetched up on a stump
Like that mountain in the east stopped Noah's Ark.

You should never leave the channel
If you havn't got the charts
There are hazards all around that you can't see
You should always take a pilot to steer you safely through
Or you'll end up barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks, Rita, for inviting our two cents worth of comments. Dwayne, Hester, and I always feel that this is a "family reunion". The memories and the spirit of the Getaway stay with us the whole year.
I'm glad I read these notes - I printed the "Cicada Serenade" and plan to do the rap (with Dwayne makin' those wierd cicada wing sounds) for the guys in our monthly songfest group.
We're always sad to leave after lunch on Sunday and miss the workshops and the concert on Sunday evening. Sounds like it was a winner, too.
Thanks to all the planners of the Getaway!!!!

Elizabeth has been too busy to process, but I shared some of the great compliments about her singing that I read, and she was very pleased, of course! All of The Shellback Chorus were a blast! I can't say what I especially enjoyed, cause I enjoyed it all. My only problem was I couldn't go to everything at once. Again, thanks for the whole weekend; if you love to sing (as I always have loved to do) it was something not to be missed!

Sandy

Sinsull's jacket is not in the collection of stuff I've got. But there are a couple of blankets at knitpick's house (jsut around the corner from mine) and another batch of stuff at Carly's house (and I'm going there this weekend for Samuel's bar mitzvah).

I'll try to report a more complete inventory late this coming weekend.

Charlie, I put Sinsull's Jacket (rust and white with elephants?) in one of the boxes at the registration table at the end of things. Didn't know it was hers or I'd have mailed it out for her birthday.

Did you find such a thing?

This thread is so enjoyable that I've sent an e-mail to some of the non-Mudcatters who were at the Getaway asking if they'd like to add their two cents worth.
