My Life in Song - So Long to NGS, Ohio

Carol Burnett Show Theme Song Lyrics

Title: "Carol's Theme"

Written By: "Joe Hamilton"

I'm so glad we had this time together,
Just to have a laugh, or sing a song.
Seems we just get started and before you Know it
Comes the time we have to say, “So long".
There's a time you wanna sigh for dreamin.
And a time for things you have to do.
The time I love the best is any evening
I can spend a moment here with you.
When the time comes and I'm feelin' lonely
And I'm feelin' oh so blue.
I just sit back and think of you only
And the happiness still comes through.
That's why I'm glad we had this time together.
Cause it makes me feel like I'm along.
Seems we just get started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say, "So Long".

This song sums up perfectly how I feel each time a leave a conference. The time flies by way too fast and even though I am exhausted and totally wore out, my brain spinning from all the information, I am sad to see it end.

The time spent at the NGS conference in Ohio (or any other place for that matter) is time well spent. I attend meetings, meet up with friends, make new friends, arrange projects and jobs, attend classes and rub elbows with the experts, the big wigs, in the genealogy world.

By the time it is over I'm done. Stick a fork in me. I am in overload. But I still don't really want to see it end.

Maybe that's why I'm a conference junkie. I can't wait for the next one. That would be the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree in June. Just around the corner. Join me, why don't you?

You'll be "glad we had the time together."
