Well folks I'm sorry to say I have to go in for my other new hip in November, and I can't do the Getaway and that too.
As it gives me a great deal of pain and discomfort I must get it done as soon as possible.
Sorry to miss all you guys, but hopefully next year.

That's a great idea, Susan!

Best wishes for your outfitting as the New Bionic Man, Giok! I didn't know Skarpi and others have also had to bow out for this year. I probably will not make it, as previously thought,too, unless we make a certain sale in time. I figure that's alright, though. Those who go this year can suss out all the *wrinkles* at the new camp and have them all ironed out in time for us at next year's!

I have to add myself to this year's list of deserters. I had a lot of fun last year, especially with the sea music workshops. However, I do have to spend some time reinforcing a couple of legislative campaigns in my area, and Election Day is the following Tuesday. The Legislature is almost evenly divided this year and our district is always a battleground.

Next year for sure!

So don't trash the place completely!

Jock, what is this crap? It's not as though you weren't hip enough already, man. Just back off on the experimental positions and you'll be foine! Besides, the reason we come to the Getaway is to get AWAY from the artifices of Western civ...except for the good ones like cigars and good "fruit juice"...

Charlie, we'll miss ya. Give 'em hell. Kat, just get busy and sell what needs to be sold, ya know what I mean. I am sure you'll be able to save up enough between now and then... :D

Every year about this time financial, medical and personal realities set in and they start dropping like flies. SIGH

I'll be there with or without the Captain. Now I have to go break this to the poor demented little lamb in my dining room. Another heart broken, Giok.

But better you get yourself healthy for next year.

Them as are in New England or NY and can't go that far, keep NOMAD in mind as an alternative.

It's considerably more urban, but you can get to it.

The fact that we're playing there has nothing to do with my plugging it.

"(spoken)
Maria . . .
(sings)
The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria!
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.
Maria!
I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!
Maria!
Say it loud and there's music playing,
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.

Maria,
I'll never stop saying Maria!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria.

Are you calling me a FLY?! I've dropped like a lot of things, but I always thought I dropped more gracefully than a swatted insect!!

I am, reluctantly, signing in as mostly-likely-not-to-be-there this year.

There is a slim chance, but work and life realities are interfering. If I do come, it'll be a last minute squeaker.

That said, I have a FABULOUS idea for a concert set-piece and some of you should expect to hear from me about it ; )

I plan to be there--and will do my best to convince Dani there IS no life without the Getaway. Unfortunately, she is both stubborn and responsible.

(Perhaps I can at least convince her that she really doesn't want to be responsible for loosing me on the Getaway unsupervised:>)

Sister Annie is planning on coming also, but has got to find another engineer to go evaluate the envirnmental impact of the "Pumkin Chunkin'" in Delaware first.

Giok gets a bye due to the operation, skarpi too, given the house, but that is it. The rest of y'all get about the business of making the necessary arrangements.

.... at least fir now, I'm leanin' heavily toward doin' just that.... Yeah, me and the P-Vine for 3 'er 4 days with no TV, no noise, no telephone, no electricity...

OK, tell Annie she **HAS** to come now! 'Cuz there's a certain other engineer who lurks around the Getaway that's curious about these environmental evaluations of the "Pumkin Chunkin" contest! 8-)

I actually recently read a book that was mostly about the Burning Man festival but also mentioned the "Pumkin Chunkin" too.
