I agree, Bob, concerning Paul's wit. He sat in our kitchen one afternoon, while we were still living in Vermont, and spontaneously outlined the plot for a highly imaginative mystery novel, which, of course, he never wrote. It was a masterful display of inventive brilliance.

I always thought that a television series based on the Manly Wade Wellman stories of John, the ballad hunter (with the silver strings on his guitar), should have been made, with Paul cast as the protagonist. Of course, that never happened either.

By the way, I frequently insert the "peer in silk and ermine" verse when i sing Paul's version of the song. Seems to fit with the "miser" verse.

Can you push Don Wade to turn your LPs into CDs? Lots of folks are eager for 'em.
