Dan Calder Mudcat (THE WORLD)Let us know where you are. (182* d) RE: Mudcat (THE WORLD)Let us know where you are. 18 Oct 98


Hello, I'm sitting in Sprighill, Nova Scotia, on the East coast of Canada. Home of Anne Murray and Johnny Mooring (award winning fiddler). The weather here has been lousy for the past week, but today is beautiful: sunny and cool. As in Ontario, as Jack said, the autumn leaves have passed their peak, and are mostly on the ground now. I was born here, my wife was born here, and our two daughters were born here. I'm a grade six teacher, and vice-principal of our two elementary schools (and more years away from retirement than I want to consider at this point). Our population is hovering between 4500-5000.

I have three guitars, two 6-strings and a 12, but I haven't performed in public since my college days. My music tastes have always been good guitar-based musicians. I've always listened to artists like Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver, Stan Rogers, Garnet Rogers...tunes I can play (usually while sitting alone in a little cabin I have on a lake) with some degree of proficiency.

Both of my daughters study piano, and we have a too large 97 year old Hanes Brothers piano in out dining room (which I picked up for nothing a few years ago...just the energy involved to move it).

I've been reading the 'Cat for a few years, now, and have posted a few times. I just thought I would take Roger's advice. I am also throughly enjoying this thread. Keep it up. Enjoy, Dan
