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 times...so....
