so my betrothed bought me an amazing present for my birthday…it’s an autoharp!  i have named it june in honor of johnny’s wife and have been having a lovely time playing and singing old peter, paul and mary and tom waits songs.  i am looking forward to when we have a little time so todd can accompany me on the banjo.  maybe we’ll take this act on the road!

here is a better picture of my dress, known round my place as the sunshine frock

outfit details: yellow dress was puchased in mexico a few years ago; red shoes are tsubos; red and yellow leather belt is from ebay

song inspiration: “san antonio rose” by june carter cash.  she and her mother maybelle were the queens of the autoharp.  soon i shall play like this and the world will be at my feet.
