Thread Name: Happy Birthday Kytrad
Subject: RE: HAPPY BIRTHDAY KYTRAD
NO! NO! Spaw, I was NOT asking for a birthday thread--- that's why I only mentioned it the day AFTER my birthday...I DISAPPROVE of birthday threads!!!

That said, Thanks, everyone...You're all so very kind; as for me, I'm thankful to be still walkin around, and able to get out a song or two once in awhile. A few observations regarding the above letters:

1) Spaw didn't spill the beans about my age; I did it in the thread he stole it from- also, it's told in the first sentence of my book Singing Family of the Cumberlands (1955)

2) Don't all singers have terrible head colds when they have concerts?

3) Have made taboulli perhaps three times in my life- you lucked out, Kat!

4) What's an Orchid CD? Is there a recording of, "Deep Shady Grove" that I don't know about?

Thanks,love and blessings to all,    Jean
