Update, Etc.

Posted by Humbled by this instrument on Friday, May 28, 2021

So I'm still here...on this side of the grass.  However, my oncologist is not encouraging.  He says it's just a matter of time, and how much I've got is not a whole lot, he says.  I still hike and move about, and people who see me on my near daily walks remark that I'm looking good....  If only looks made a difference....

I still play fiddle, octave mandolin, mandolin, bouzouki, lute, acoustic guitar, bass, and bodhran, and I try to make some noise with these instruments daily.  And although I generally concentrate on old (auldt) standards out of Appalachia, Ireland, Scotland, England, and such, I also readily play material which seems "fun" regardless of its origins.  "Norwegian Wood," for instance, almost plays itself on my octave mandolin, and it is a treat to play with my mandolin playing friend when we get together.  

Hmmmmm.  I was going to type some more, but this program doesn't seem to be working--the letters are jostled and I'm having to re-type things five, six
