Thread Name: Happy Birthday, Folk-Legacy!
Subject: RE: Happy Birthday, Folk-Legacy!
As a young immigrant, I had my first real jobs at the 1964-65 World's Fair in New York. By day, I was a beefeater at the Tower of London exhibit guarding rhinestone copies of the Queen's baubles. At night, I was a janitor at the Swedish Pavillion. It is true, I saw both sides of life everday.

I made an incredible amount of money for the time and invested a significant portion of it in those sternly black covered lps of Paddy Tunney, Harry Cox and Lawrence Older... just to mention a few.

I loved those old records and, although we're separated by miles with no turntable at their repository, I still grab a few every now and then and bring them home for a spin.

I'm happy and honored to have had my name join those names in your catalogue but I'm happiest of all to have known you these many years. Sandy, Caroline, Lee and Rob... Congratulations and may you have 38 more and 38 more again!

All the best,
Dan Milner
