Thank you Ken my friend.. we are missing you. I hope you are still managing some music time... winter is tough on a lot of us. Plus having a good go at giving up the ciggies is a real tester for anyone.

Hi Colleen. Thank u...yes, i thought i had fox proofed their enclosure and they had been fine for 4 years... but foxes are also very determined hunters when it comes to chickens and ducks. The back yard seems pretty empty now. Not sure if i will try and reinforce my setup and try again.....maybe in a year or two.

Hi Helen,

Good to see the new pecan dulcimer.  I like the high sound. Sorry to hear about Rose and Betty.  Foxes are clever beasties.

Helen, you must be the only dulcimer player who has ever apologized for her dulcimer being too loud!  

I'm sorry to hear about Rose and Betty. Comments about the circle of life would seem trite, I'm sure. But I'm also sure their lives were improved because of your care.  I hope playing your new dulci will help keep your spirits up.  That must be the only pecan dulcimer I've ever seen, and it sounds big and bright and beautiful.

Helen, so sorry your Rose & Betty are gone. I also know how hard it is to loose pets.

I enjoyed hearing your new Ron Gibson in pecan (p'can or peaKan). We raised bobwhite quail to train bird dogs and Henrietta and Harmony were favorites. They spent a lot of time being retrieved and would scold Joy and Yankee after each time. Birds can be delightful.

Helen, so sorry about your chicken friends, what a lovely tribute to them.

I am happy you got your beautiful dulcimer safely, it is a beauty and a very bright sound. I love the pecan.

Helen, I'm very sorry about Rose & Betty.  Here at our home, animals are family members.  

Your dulcimer and the play of it are lovely.  As far as I know, this is the first time I've heard a dulcimer with a pecan top-- the sound is nice!
