Little cuts are reason why I went to playing noter/drone style. When I was working my fingers would split in the winter...Know what you're talking about, Dusty. It's painful.

Well it's been two weeks since I had my accident with the table saw. Had my follow up appointment with the orthopedic surgeon today and all is well. I only have to keep them bandage when I got out an about, or at night when I go to bed. I Can even hold my noter to play without too much difficulty or pain.

You have more activity than we do right now, Barb. The gas company is leveling off the field  where i could see and hear them from my front porch. More habitat gone. I'm waiting to hear from them to see how far off they are. Nothing yet. 

The gas company is supposed ??? To return the land back to the way it was. Hope you get your habitat back... I lost a complete planting of tomatoes to turkeys, lost thousands of much needed dough as well. Now I fence all plantings and enjoy the gobblers... Robert.

They're in the process of making it level to drill. They are at a stop now. Don't know when they'll start back up.

What Are You Working On?


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Dusty Turtle:

I look forward to hearing your new song, Robin!

 

Jim, I had to look this stuff up.  You are close. There's an episode of The Waltons in which the parents sing The Old Spinning Wheel to Elizabeth.   And there's another episode when John Boy sings Red Rosy Bush accompanied by a dulcimer.  Here's The Old Spinning Wheel and here's Red Rosy Bush .

 

I decided to start keeping a list of the songs I play and to periodically go over the list and make sure I can still play them.  It's frustrating when you "lose" songs you used to play.

Dusty, I'm in the ball park, anyway. I knew it was a song I heard on The Walton's and I remember that John Boy played the dulcimer. For me I was 2 for 2...LOLdulcimer

But it is a very easy listening song and from the time I heard it I wanted to learn how to play it.

I was looking through some of the songs and tunes I have, and I came across one that I played a while ago and had forgotten about. Now I'm starting from scratch learning it again. The Old Spinning Wheel. I heard it about three years ago on a rerun of The Walton's. I think John Boy was playing it on a dulcimer.

Remember Our Friend Oliver Ogden.


OFF TOPIC discussions

It was indeed a sad and unexpected message that I received from Sharon on Oliver's passing. He became a very good friend right off the bat. Talking of his many interests. Getting together at our gatherings was a highlight for him. You will be missed, my friend.

Lexie, thanks for accepting the request to do this for Oliver. You did very well.
