  1. Oh, thank you for that! It was a delight. I needed cheering up, especially since my lovely old Pirate dog just trekked something in all over the carpet that .. was not mud. LOL!

  4. You turned me on to Fretkillr around Christmas and I spent too much time poking around and enjoying his enormous talents (strumming, picking, fretting, singing, and playing the harp). He's also a nice guy. If you contact him he writes back. The tune you picked has been an earworm all day: stuck in my ear.

    Warning: Don't listen to Fretkillr's "Up a Lazy River" unless you're completely immune to earworms.

  5. Oh Jay. How did you get it out? :-(

    Thank you e. Welcome! Come back again!

    Thanks Alden.

    Dan - 'earworm' - what a fantastic word! I've been humming 'Would you like... etc' for about a week now. Yesterday N. said to me 'Please, please Mum, learn the rest of it! I'm sick of you singing just the first line!'
    'Up a Lazy River' sounds the perfect song for the post I've presently writing!
    PS How did you contact him? I didn't think he responds on the comment area... but maybe I didn't look properly.
