You through me for a loop, because I have never heard that he made teardrops. Would it be this image?
If so, look more closely. The upper bout is a bit indistinct, but those hearts are there.
Things are moving right along for the Homecoming.
Hello Mike ! Just wondered if I could pick your brains re Uncle Ed ! Have you any knowledge of the number of 'teardrop' instruments he may have made. Have only just picked up on the fact that the well publicised picture of him with hat on sat with a dulcimer on his lap shows a teardrop leaning against the adjacent ladderback chair ?
I trust all is going well for in preparation for the event of the year !
Hello Mike ! This to apologise for not pickin up on your FB comment earier !It was 0500 a. m. here , I act as 'nurse' for my wife, and was up with her at that time for a bathroom visit, I usually sit and flick thro' things while I wait, but can't afford to get involved, if you see what I mean ?
Yes, I would love to be there, this nursing housewifey thing is pretty durned wearing . I think I may have remarked before, a couple of weeks standing by you in the workshop would do me the world of good just now, I think our sense of humour might well be a match, lol ! !
Thanks, Mike for honoring my friend request.
Really enjoyed talking with you and Doug this past Tuesday. Actually seeing a real Thomas and Ambrugey was a real treat. I was really impress with the play on your Thomas cherry replica, not all I have to do is convince my wife that I need one. I'm working on that ! It would be the perfect dulcimer for George Rogers Clark to play at Locust Grove in Louisville. You need to come to the Ohio Valley Gathering in Lexington next March. Thanks again for a great tour.
Great pic of Don. I like to think Jethro Amburgey played in that same spot.
Mike: We'll be back in Hindman for the Appalachian Writer's Workshop at the end of July and expect to be staying in Pine Top until October. Looking forward for a closer look at the Luthiery.
Hi Mike, Thanks for the offer to be friends. You have got some interesting photos posted.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been lurking for a while and sort of feel like I know some of you already.
welcome to the site Mike. Can't wait to see your reproductions you make.
Welcome Mike. Good to see you here on FOTMD. We look forward to your participation. I'm sure there are some here who can contribute to your research, though I'm not one of them. Best wishes to you.
Hey Mike, and Welcome to FOTMD! Great site, even greater folks here hope you enjoy!
Hi Mike, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
Hey Mike, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome, Mike, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
