Hi Ruth, Thanks for the permission to use your name. As it turned out I went ahead and

put the hymn on my blog. Know that I am appreciative of the fact that you got me to thinking that there were people out there looking for Easter music. Thanks, JohnSmile.gif

Hi Ruth, A while back you asked for suggestions for Easter music for you and your church group. My wife has written a new hymn for Easter that I am going to share with all through my blong. I start out by mentioning that it was your asking us all if we knew of any Easter music that prompted this sharing. Is it all right to mention your request in my blog?Smile.gif

Hi Ruth,

It was so nice to meet you. Hopefully we can meet again in October. I have someone checking on a possible dulcimer club near me. I've met some very caring dulcimer people but you are the only one from Australia. I'm glad you found the dulcimer. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.Smile.gif

Welcome Ruth to FOTMD! I live in southwest Arlington, I have been playing the MD for almost three years, the best place to learn and hear the the MD played is at festivals. I know this is probably not enough time to plan for but thre ic the Winter Creek Reunion this weekend starting Firday thru Sunday morning. It is in Bennington Okla. 20 or so miles east of Durant. It is free for the festival and concerts, really good meals at a reasonable cost.

Hi Ruth, and welcome to the world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
