Thread Name: Edsel Martin Dulcimer on eBay
Subject: RE: Edsel Martin Dulcimer on eBay
Nigel, I'm sure you know that Edsel is (was?) also an automobile... our first auto purchase after our marriage was a Kaiser, sort of kin to the Edsel I guess, same era. It was the first car to have a hatch-back; the whole trunk lid and car-back lifted up for loading. We loved it and if we had hung onto it, we'd be very wealthy now!
Chance- I'm fine, and friend Ron's fine too, haven't heard from him in awhile. He's working hard, getting ready for his sabbatical next year.
Katlaughing- I have some old correspondence from Edsel- we used to see each other occasionally at festivals, etc. I think he contributed a song for that old Newport Songbook. Whoever got that on the Auction? Might be able to tell you- meanwhile I'll try to find it here, in my chaotic den. Jean
