Subject: RE: I LOVE the DT!!!
Thanks, Joe, for posting the link to the roots of DT Story.

I am absolutely delighted to have found DT, and the serendipitous discovery along with it, of Mudcat. Both have added immensely to my enjoyment of the music. Mudcat is an astounding source of information.

Because I am tempermentally uninterested in discussions of modern small arms, I have missed some of the more contentious threads and, following my own interests through the threads, have basked in the reflected warmth of Mudcat camraderie. Twice a day, now, with my morning coffee and as I close up shop for the night, I cruise through the messages posted since my last visit. Often, the references and links they contain take me to great places I would never have found. Often, the messages introduce me to people I might never have met. The Tex Konig thread is like a short story. I didn't know him, I had never heard of him, but the patchwork biography of the thread has made him real to people like me, illuminating a time and place as well as a person, the way any good biography should.

My thanks to you keepers of the flame -

or perhaps, to paraphrase Pete Seeger, the keepers of The Chain - the one that links generations together through music and the poetry of lyrics.
