Patty listening to this was so much fun and a big help. I had tried it but it didn't take.

No worries Ken, I had already picked you out, sat in the location I would wish to be in myself, handy to somewhere to place stuff, close enough to see/hear the action, far enough away from it so as not to have to lead ! We might have a few things in common !!! Intrigued now, why was it difficult to keep straight faces 39.gif ?

best wishes

John Henry, I am sitting behind the guy in the pink shirt. The tub made a handy instrument holder and there was a nice variety of beer. Glad you enjoyed our little performance. We certainly had a hard time keeping straight faces.

That is my evil twin brother JH , he can't play or build a decent dulcimer, got a bald spot on top too. Really I was rushing around that morning and didn't realize I forgot to cover the shiny spot up. LOL

LOL, now I know who you mean...His hat has mysteriously disappeared. Don't know why either.

Sure did Jim 41.gif thanks again! As for the guy in the corner,he'swearing a sorta pinkish shirt, and playing a darkish colour, rough lookingdulcimer? I keep wanting to put a hat on him for some reason 3.gif !


(you're up early ???)

Glad you enjoyed it, John. It had a lot more to it, but it was left on the cutting room floor. We gave it our best Wartz try so there ya are. Guy in the bottom RH corner? What color shirt?

Dusty, dancing's good. Glad the dog liked it, too.

41.gif41.gif41.gif What a great way to start my day ! Thanks to all you Wartz'n folk, this almost makes up for me not being there ! If only you could have produced a vid of a certain tin being opened and a certain person consuming contents, that would have been the real deal 3.gif . It looks to have been an enjoyable gathering in lovely surroundings, recognise some familiar faces, but who's the guy in the bottom RH corner............7.gif The posting has raised a problem tho', makes me realize that the 'bowed' version of this tune thatI posted here some time ago does not do the tune justice, you lot have !!!

thanks for the thought

Very cool. My daughter and I waltzed around the living room to that one. And the dog tried to join in.

10/15/13 09:48:57PM @strumelia:

Awesome! And such a pretty waltz!

All too short though...would love to hear it about three more times through.
