    Good morning, my friends. Usually I do a video for a wrap and preferably on the Tuesday after my Season ends, but as a result of an unexpected trip to the vet yesterday, I've got to shift gear. (Not to worry. This basically involves a cyst between doggie toes bursting. It requires attention and monitoring, but hopefully, will heal properly with both of those.) So, I'll not be moving the microphone and music stand and making noise while Seamus is resting, as he is now.

    I begin by offering my most sincere gratitude for your contributions to this past Season. Your dedications to loved ones, friends, and most of all, each other were deeply touching. The dedications that you offered to me I will never forget. Our bonds in the Seasons are deep ones and this Season reminded me so strongly of that. Thank you so very much.

    Our final playlist has 83 videos. (Videos deleted along the way do not figure in this count.) Our total number of participating Seasonistas was 39.

    Each and every performance was an absolutely beautiful listening experience for me; please do not doubt that! Yet, I'd like to mention some performances that I was particularly taken with. All of these are listed in no particular order.

    COLLABORATIONS
    mountain goat, Joo, Mezcalero (Jon, Joo, Kevin) - "comic book writer"
    Recovering Bassist and AlanDP (Trent, Alan) - "A Small Small World"

    INSTRUMENTALS
    bonesigh - "Gently"
    pabrizzer - "Sparkle and Shine"

    ORIGINALS
    RAB11 - "A Life for a Life"
    DelGriff - "You're Always There For Me"
    Ginas Uke - "Debris"
    mountain goat - "always"

    COVERS
    cazteclo - "(Wish I Could) Hideaway"
    LimousinLil - "Days"
    Linda Louden - "Sisters"
    Tootler - "My Lady's A Wild Flying Dove"
    Yukio - "Reet Petite"
    Ceejay - "Pride and Joy"
    TCK - "One Mans Story"

    I am sending out a gift this week and I've chosen hendulele as recipient. Rick has been such an important presence on the Season during my entire time here. He embraces each theme with his heartfelt contributions. Additionally, along the way, as we've needed hosts, Rick has been the one to to step up and donate his time. This week, Rick has had to deal with some issues involving his animal companions. Still, he sent me a p.m., telling me how much he liked the theme and how he hoped to join in if he could. He took time out to send me the gift of a kind word. And then? He did manage to sing a couple for us. Rick, please send me a p.m. with your address and thank you for all you've done for all of us.

    And so, my friends, thank you so very much for sharing the gifts of song. I am so very grateful. Love, Linda
    Linda, you are so kind and thoughtful. Thanks you so much for hosting a meaningful season. PM on the way.

    Thank you!!

    Rick

    Greetings,

    Thank you for a wonderful week Linda and the terrific theme. (and for the mention). It's all about the wonderful gift of music that we give to one another as well as to ourselves. Have a great week everyone, especially our winner Rick. As a huge pet lover, hoping the pooch is on the way to a speedy recovery.

    Ciao

    Many thanks, Gina, for all of your kind thoughts and for sharing the beautiful poem about your mom's house in song. I won't forget that song. Thank you so much!
