The only time that seems too short...  

...is the time that we get to play.

So gerisullivan had her Toad Hall housecooling party last night. *sniff* We're gonna miss her around here, we are we are.

Geri and Toad Hall again wove their very special magic, and the music was really quite wonderful — quite like The Good Old Days in many respects. And, probably because it was, after all, the Last Waltz at Toad Hall, many surprising (or, come to think of it, maybe not-so-surprising) folks showed up to shmooze and kibbitz and play and listen and sing and hang out and chat and nosh and just generally be their wonderful selves once again. One hopes that perhaps this noteable ending of a chapter will also turn out to have been the start of a wonderful new chapter in the Minneapolis fannish scene.

Geri somehow managed to coax Reed Waller up from Hermit City — an operation which would have derailed at the last minute when Reed's car became indisposed but for the invaluable help of Jack Targonski who was coming up from Chicago and was willing to lenghten his trip by swinging by Hermit City to pick up Reed. This, as might be expected, ratcheted up the music (and general overall) wonderfulness a notch or three.

I'm out of the loop; where is Miss Geri moving to?

I'm out of the loop…
Yeah, you haven't lived in Chicagoland in some years now…

…where is Miss Geri moving to?
She hasn't found her exact landing site yet, but I understand she's looking for someplace wooded along or near the Connecticut/Massachusetts border. She's heading East to stay with friends and intensify her search. More than that I cannot say.

Farewell to Toad Hall forever
Farewell to our Geri as well
No parcel of rogues could ask for
A better chance to raise up some hell

Having returned Reed to said City earlier this evening, I'll state now that swinging down from hereabouts to pick him up for whatever is not a big deal. It's about 90 miles one way and most of that on interstate. We had a nice chat on the way down and I had tunes a-crankin' on the way back up. Time flew. I'd be happy to make that trip again anytime we want to have a Reed around for a weekend or whatever.

Cool! Glad it worked out well.

Since she's not a young man, she's able to ignore Horace Greeley's advice. For slightly more detail see above my reply to rmjwell
