    Really nice, light, Doug!
    I’ve been playing more tunes out of G lately on my DGd-tuned Bloom bowed dulcimer. (The low and middle strings are cello strings!)

    That was for the hearing aid comment.

    Thanks, Sheila. Actually, she left me behind for a few days but she’ll be home Sunday!

    Love it, Doug. I always think of that as such a military affiliated song – the delicate graphics turn it into a love song for me. Gee…. wonder why this song was on your mind. (hee hee) Thanks for adding a little sweetness to the day!

    My father told me that if it weren’t for being able to turn off his hearing aids I never would have learned to play whistle!

    Glad you like it, Marge. I’m playing more and more G tunes in D-G-D these days – I like the way the notes flow.

    Hope to see you soon!

    ….Jerry Rockwell was just mentioning what a good penny whistle player you are! ..I love this tune, I will have to re-learn it. I always liked in ‘G’, dulcimer players want to play in ‘D’ so I just forogt about it. Thanks for the revival!
