Art, we sure wish you were feeling well enough to come to the Festival again. It would be a treat and an honor to meet you. We will think of you often while raising hell the next three weeks.

Tom, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner! Phil's right; John's been camped out at Winfield for a week already, and though his computer's there, he's got no Internet (withdrawals are imminent).

Phil's photo shows Glen, who is from Newton KS, and plays one heck of a set of spoons in addition to his dulcimer. John and I are from Wichita. If you are too, do you know about the Monday night jams at Old Chicago Restaurant on Kellogg East? They play lots of Irish and folk, and Glen is usually there with dulcie and spoons. All listeners and most players are welcome!

Also, don't know if you've ever been to the Festival, but Winfield is a great place to meet players of all kinds of instruments, including cicadas (yes, I mean the bugs).

Sorcha, of course we never did that stuff. That's why we're all old, gray, wrinkled, and tired today!

Phil, looking forward to seeing you and Michele there! John and I BOTH got new cameras this last year, but he still says you cheat and take pictures in the daylight...gotta do something about that weird streak of yours.

Working madly to get my proof job finished so I can go out there and stay,

Lin
