My Merry Christmas

Posted by cornfed on Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Yay! Yahoo!!! and a double-dip yipee!!!  I just scored a copy of "Dear Old Illinois"!!  (Actually, it's been on order for a couple of weeks.) I have two long weekends coming up to just sit around  and noodle through it. It is a very well executed paperback in 8.5x11 format with a variable number of tunes on each page There are songs also at one per page. 506 pages with several useful looking indices. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Oh, maybe I am. My oldest son also got me a copy of volume two of RP Christeson's" OT Fiddler's Repertory" I forsee many years of pleasure ahead. I can't wait to get started...don't even want to eat ( that's saying a lot for me). Yes, Wayne there is a Santa Clause...at least the spirit of the ol' guy.

Oh, chuckle and glee. See ya'll after a while!

Very nice! Dear Old Illinois is part of my Christmas this year, too. I opened the CDs this morning and I've been listening to the first one trying to decide what I might want to work on next year. Enjoy . . .

Thanks.BJ! This is SW Pa area (some of my anscstors are from W. MD just south of there. It has your (Sara's) "Maggots in the Sheephide" also. Great! I've been meaning to look it up and learn it ever since I read your reference to the title.
Thanks again, and Merry Christmas.
