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.

I'm in a small town outside of Regina. I actually bought my dulcimer when I lived in Edmonton for seminary. It was made by Joseph Babiak of Edmonton who had passed a couple of years before I bought it.

 I didn't see a message tab up top, so will try here. Yes, If you can attach the "On Eagle Wings" tab by way of a pdf or jpeg file or I'm not sure how we get tabs to each other. 

thanks

Hi Gordon, I would be glad to send you the tabs but I would need your address to do it.

I am not sure how you go about writing private messages but maybe you do.?

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! 


Robin Thompson
12/08/15 02:12:52PM @robin-thompson:

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

Merry Christmas!
