The Waldo Wassail lives on! You are cordially invited to celebrate multiple events at January's Skellig Song Session:
  • Sixth Annual Waldo Wassail, rescheduled to the 25th day of Christmas
  • T.T. The Bear's Reunion (you know who you are)
  • Lynn's first and only Annual 49th Birthday (1/22)
  • Burns Night for the Poet Robert Burns
  • Birthday Cakes and Ale for All Us January Babies
Pick your party, they're all in the back room of the Skellig on Monday 19 January. Thanks to Jeff Keller and Anabel Graetz (co-founders of this monthly session) for suggesting such a happy solution. Kudos to Peter Masters and Cathy Mason of the Annual 33rd Night Party for inspiration to continue that tradition, and to Hal and Oran for the idea of calling out the Auld Gang for a reunion of our 1980-1985 Monday sessions at T.T. the Bear's.

Please bring a song and/or Burns recitation to share, musical instruments, and foolery gear. We will hold the Nth Annual Pooh reading of Chapter 6, address the haggis, fathom the bowl such as the landlord can provide, and send me (Lynn) off in fine style for my knee replacement the following Wednesday.

I look forward to whooping it up with all you wassailers, and then spending my actual birthday recovering in the peace and quiet of Newton-Wellesley Hospital. All I want for my birthday is a brand new knee!

GUESTS, FOOD, & DRINK The Skellig is a public house. Please bring anyone you wish. The bar will be open, and as usual for sessions, those who would like dinner are invited to come at 6:00 and order from the menu.
