Thanks for your comments John, I know what you mean about solids, planks of wood with strings, they'll all go quiet when we rely on wind power!

Hi Unc!! No slide on any of my latest tunes. 2 strings and dulcimer fretting. Mostly just songs I have sung and loved for a long time. Hope you are well!!

Hi Uncle John,

I don't know what has been going on but I have found it almost impossible to upload photos of my recent builds.

Failed using the laptop, a Samsung tablet and my mobile. Succeeded today with the Indian photo using an old Hudl tablet.

As a confirmed dinosaur it's been very frustrating, do I try hitting them with a hammer or do I try to borrow a 10yr. old to assist.
