I bet to anyone reading this thread they'd be puzzled as to how you playing The Blackest Crow on a JI dulcimer turned into discussion about an Fotmd version on Calender Girls!And I'm still not doing it!

I don't know if Calender Girls played in the States but your images might put a few people off their breakfast although an Ed Thomas for a John Thomas seems appropriate somehow. Not that I'm volunteering for a 2016 fotmd Calender or anything!!!

Hmmm.......what flavour jam Steve? images of a remake of 'Calendar Girls' coming to mind here , with dulcimers instead of cherry buns tho'! (do I remember you buying one of those very narrow Ed Thomas replicas ?)

best wishes

Been meaning to post, JH--beautiful instrument, and I always love to hear you play. Just an aside--you look like a sandals sans socks kind of guy to me.

Lisa, I'll buy the socks, too! ;)

John, in order to help, I'll buy all on the bed and under it, too! :)

Thank you Robin T ! As for the bed, it might be a good idea to sell to you (and there are as many MD's underneath), 'cos then our so called 'spare bedroom' could indeed become a proper bedroom, lol.

John, your dulcimer sounds wonderful and is, indeed another treasure! Also, I'm interested in buying that bed and all its contents. :) Such a treat to hear you play!
