Hi Rose,

I am so happy for you! I'm looking forward to your report. (I'm listening to Painter now; Much to My Surprise is my favorite, second is Drifters. I'll bet there will be a smile on every face there tonight! )

Happy & safe travels...

DSR will be at the Atlanta show. She will not be able to have internet access until late Saturday night. Maybe I can find Char's friend MAH.

Hi Frank,
I've only seen THE MAN in concert twice, so I don't have much knowledge about what he does or doesn't play on a regular basis, but neither of the times I've seen him did he sing the song he wrote for me . . . Mountains and Maryann. Course, if he ever did, I'd probably jump out of my seat, make a bee-line to the stage albiet knocking down anyone in my way, doing a Superman type leap over the security guards to land gingerly on my feet just inches from the microphone. Two seconds after that, I'd be squeezing the living daylights out of him and saying Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I'd also like to hear him sing High and Dry.

Just the facts Ma'am,

Our records show that last year you reported that a "MTNSANDMA" would be attending a performance. Coincidentally, they also went by the alias of 'MaryAnn" and you also referred to this 'person' as "Georgia Peach". We'll need further evidence to verify your account.

Hi all,

Atlanta was the best so far. Gordon was strong and feeling good. I am sorry I can not do a set list. I have tried and as soon as Gordon starts to sing........................

Anyone wanting to say hello before the show in Gainsville please sent me a PM.

That's all fine and well Ma'am, but your position as moderator makes the possibility of "data manipulation" a concern. We certainly hope to have this issue resolved as soon as possible.

OK. So, please understand that you have until 11:59:59 PM EST, Monday, 2/18/08 to provide this evidence. Otherwise, the case, "Corfidians For Truth vs CHar", will be presented to a jury of the first 12 responders to the question :" Should the "imaginary friend" note be deleted from the 'You Were There (Lightfoot '08) thread ?"

Good Luck.
