I am happily retired from a very rewarding career in public service. I live on my farm in the beautiful "Peace River Country" of northern Alberta, Canada. I play a baritone mountain dulcimer for my enjoyment and to accompany my singing. I very much appreciate the community here at FOTMD.

G'day there young Gordon, i always pop a reply up on my video pages when people are kind enough to comment. I just realised that they may not know the reply is there. I just wanted to especially thank you for following my music and all your kind words. Hapoy Strumming.

That's neat you were part of a German singng group, Gordon!  I don't sing well in English so will, likely, not try singing in German.  :) I'll go with an instrumental for now-- this melody is so pretty!

Thank you so much, Gordon!  Actually, I'd like to learn to read German someday and Latin, too!
