Happy Birthdays!

Jack Beck was born 2/5/1942 – Scottish balladeer of White Springs, FL & Dunfermlin
Barry Finn was born 2/5/1951 – chanteyman, Finn & good guy.

Here's a funny thing. Two fellers born on the same day, both post here and I (likely along with two or three other people) consider them good friends. But I hardly know either. Perhaps in our small community of folkies we're all compatible. Perhaps I'd get along well with any Mudcatter I met. But that's a really scary thought.

Still, you don't get a Happy! just because you're a friend of mine and a folkie. Being a superb singer and knowledgeable carrier of traditional songs helps, though.

ALSO:
World super-star violinist Ole Bull was born 2/5/1810 (d.8/17/1880).
He ill-advisedly purchased Pennsylvania land for a Norwegian colony:

        In Oleana land is free,
        The wheat and corn just plant themselves,
        They grow 4 feet a day,
        While on the bed you rest your-selves.

                Ole, Oleana... (The town is now called Oleona)

WHOA, am I Happy? You'll never live this one down Abby. I must've sung my way into your heart. Awe Shucks!
Thanks

OK guys, less of the preening. (I could tell Abby I was born on exactly the same day as Andy Wallace).
