Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

You can't leave!! You're not allowed!

Why are you moving? I hope it's for a big pay raise and a pretty lady!

You can come sit in with us if you like - we enjoy having another player around! However, I would need to see if there is a way to get you in, because walking from parking through the front gate to back where we are is quite a hike with a 30 pound instrument to tote. But ren fair is a blast, and when you're done playing around with us, you must go see the sword play performed by our friend Alan Hutton, and the Wenches do their show in the Sea Devil Tavern - ohhh, fun!!

He's been teaching me - I'm just very stubborn, and prefer to play an instrument I can bang on :) I really like percussion the best.

whee!! All those instrument sounds are fun.

I'm still struggling with playing an alternating bass on a small 12 bass accordion with my left hand. Oh, the agony of learning a new thing! Makes my arm hurt. I don't know how y'all do what you do, but I'm glad you do!

No, it will not be broadcast. It will be produced as a DVD. Again, thanks. It will be great because of yoru and shelia's fine playing.

Hi - it was a fun time, and good to meet up with Shelia. Jenny was asking if we're going to be on TV and when, and I told her I didn't really find that out yet.......whether the recording was for TV, other promotional things, or whatever. So I guess I need to find that out! I'm just not a nosy guy...... we don't start the new position until March 1st, when our trainer gets back from a vacation in Germany.

Thanks for all the good playing for the televsion program and the teaching session on Sunday. Live music is much better than a recording. I hope all is going well with you new position.

Hi Again
Here is Richard Fry's (accordion repiars) phone number, 512-228-4074. I believe he is listed on the Central Texas Accordion Association web site as a vendor.

Missed you lately. I hope you had a good holiday season. Did you find the German shirt, and also, I do not think we have a German dress back? We will work more on the inventory on Saturday!! The accordion repair person is Richard Fry. His in a member of this network and is on it freuquently. He repaired on of my Horner accordions a few months ago. He did a good job. He did have to send to Germany to get some parts, which took a few weeks.

Hello Frank,
Richard Fry is the name, and as Dr Kott stated he is a member of this network, i wll look for his number and get back to you.

Thanks for the help tonight. It is good for the children to hear some good accordion music.
Here is the link to the dance for Dobleska Polka. It is also in the video section on this site.
