    RE: Miss Gibson's Strathspey

    Well, the first thing I learned is that the Pocket Edition of Bk. 32
    includes Leaflets!  Aaarrgh!  How many times have I pulled my hair at not
    having, or so I thought, the official instructions to quite a few popular
    dances??!!
    
    How could I be so dense, you ask?  (Oh, easy...) A friend gave me her old,
    but complete (up to Bk. 38), set about a year or so ago, and I just never
    noticed this feature.....
    
    But back to the dance in question --  Eric's note made it clear that
    "staying in the middle" is definitely the manner in which the transitions
    are executed.  Malcolm's note was instructive for suggesting that the
    devisor *wanted it that way* -- I guess that's what I wanted to know: "how
    come it's this way and not 'out to the setlines'?"  Because the devisor said
    so, that's why. Oberdan's and Norah's clear explanations of how such
    transition(s) can be effected in a smooth, but also powerful manner were
    much appreciated -- and will be saved for future Miss G's dancing
    opportunities.
