    Alright, Nancy. I’ve got to perform tomorrow at Greers Ferry lake in a little town named Higden for a town-wide reunion. Back in the 1960’s the town was totally relocated as part of a dam building project and each year since then folks get together once in May to rekindle their friendships.

    I have been fortunate enough to perform for this event twice now.

    Cool! Thanks for letting us all know about World Fiddle Day.

    Oh gosh, is it World Fiddle Day again already?  Have fun, Fred!  Nancy, do you have special plans?  Anybody else?  I guess the best I’ll be able to do is to wear one of the fiddle t-shirts I got at a close-out sale last fall…lol. A few days ago it was World Chihuahua Day, I found out at the last minute.  Thebest I could do for that was give all my little doggies a pork chop!  Not doin’ these important holidays right…anybody else got plans?

    When I return home from performing tomorrow, I’m going to compose a fiddle tune in honor of World Fiddle Day.

    That is if I’m not soaking wet right through to the bones…it’s forecast for severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes. I’m pretty sure we’ll be inside tomorrow. Last year we were outside and it was a gorgeous day.

    Rodger, my doggies are just barkless, to the point of yaplessness, that you would forget World Chihuahua Day, of all days…now really?  What were you thinking?  Well, I do have one of my close-out t-shirts I got for 5 bucks a piece…has a big fidde on the front and the neck and scroll on the back…so…that’s my celebration…lol.  Maybe I’ll get time to play, not sure.  We’re getting a late start on the garden and got so busy some of my seed starts ran into various disasters…so I’m very late getting going.  But I’ve got my t-shirt on and if I get the time…I’ll try to play atune.

    Steve, enjoy that time with the kids and grandkids…those are the best times!

    Fred…play us your World Fiddle Day Tune when you get it ready!

    I’m camping. So, I practiced hard this morning on B Bflat and E.

    Tried to play along with the Bluegrass Album Band recordings. I have a long way to go! Lol

    I truly sorry Cricket that I’m responsible for your puppies yaplessness.  It pains me to picture them in a yaplessness condition….I hope it doesn’t require a trip to the vet or the dog shrink.  Maybe you shouldn’t let them read the forum anymore if it does that to them….??

    True, they are underaged for browsing internet forums.  I’ll send you the Chihuahua shrink bills once I get their yappers back in order.  Actually, no, I should just pay you for giving us a day of peace and quiet around here!  What? No yapping?  I’m surprised we have ear drums left after all the shrill we endure.

    Well I wrote a fiddle tune just before I went to bed and I haven’t even tried it on the fiddle yet. I’ll learn it today and try to post it today or tomorrow.

    Update: I’m getting it better and better by the hour, but boy is it tough going! I’m going to call it “The Higden Reunion”. Lots of fancy double stops. Can’t wait to try it on my fellow band members….one of which is from Higden.
