After the Con Is Over 
21st-Jun-2009 09:24 pm
We had a wonderful time here at Concertino. Everyone has been really nice -- especially Rachel, who handled our official babysitting, along with MEW and Sarah, who served as unofficial child wranglers from time to time. Our concert yesterday went well, the committee dinner was great fun, and we enjoyed listening to the various concerts that we managed to catch during the course of the con. daisy_knotwise had to vanish upstairs with the girls between their being restless and her having some substantial congestion, so she missed the dead dog filking tonight, but that was also a nice circle of reasonable size.

It's still going now, but we need to get to bed so we can start back to Chicago tomorrow.

Thanks, everyone!

Travel safely. It was a lot of fun being a guest with you and Gretchen.

Glad you had fun! Wish I could have heard you!

Actually folkmew and Sarah *were* official - they had signed up beforehand. They totally saved my sanity.

I was listening to your concert on the way home and blushed furiously when I heard thanks for babysitting... AFTER I had let the children escape onto the stage! Couldn't have gotten them out again nearly as quickly without MEW's help.

But the added cuteness helped put the audiance in a receptive mood. It was not a problem at all.

Oh - you mean that *wasn't* part of the show?? ;-)

Seriously, they are some dang cute kids!! You and Roper do excellent work in the R&D area. :-)

We were very glad to have you there. Pensock was glad to see you too. :)

I enjoyed both the concert, the workshop and the open filk performances immensely. Thank you for singing New Frontier! (I just located my recording of it again, on an FKO CD from 2001. :)

Sorry I missed you on your way out this morning.

Given we got on the road at 7:40, it wasn't surprising.
So here's a virtual hug.

Rather belatedly I tell you - I had SO much fun getting to meet your awesome girls, and getting to chat (at least a little) with you and Gretchen!

I really hope it isn't so long before next time! (Well OVFF I assume!?) Will you have the girls again? We're hoping to leave the boys at home and (gasp) hit a con without them for a change!! (wow - can we DO that??)

I have a few adorable pics of the girls, I'll try to send them along to your email (assuming I have the right address) :-)
