thank you so much! I'll send you my address. Janet

Congratulations to the winners of the dvd...
I loved the music...seems like it gets better and better. Do Pap and Paul, Chitter, Chatter and you sing any songs totally together...I would love it, I know.
The Wordle looks like fun...we did some of that type of thing (no pun intended) in graphic arts..
Using larger words mixed with sideways and smaller words in every direction as well as different fonts...and colors..Lots of fun to create a design for all sorts of uses...
Thanks for a great post...

I loved watching the videos!
Thanks for sharing that wordle, it's a lot of fun!
Havae a great weekend!

I enjoyed this so much and congrats to the three winners.

Hi Tipper,I woke at 2 so something this morning,decided to go to your blog,I just had to listen to you'lls music,so as not to wake family I turned down the volume.When my daughter got up she says"mom you were singing in the night" "no I wasn't".Mary says,"I heard you sing about 3 times in the night and YOU don't remember".Oh ya,I sang the chorus 3 times"never grow old",forgot to turn down my volume".LOL!!You guys were great as always!God Bless. Jean

In the 3rd segment, I didn't even
remember you resting and admiring
them beautiful daughters doing the
two-part song. Bet you were so
proud. I was!
Congradulations to all three ladies in winning the Mountain
theme CD...Ken

love the dvd as always the music. the wordal is interesting

Congratulations to Ethelene, Janet, and Vickie on winning the DVDs.

Tipper, the speaker on our computer is not the best but, I can hear enough to realize how good all of you are. You, Pap, and Paul are great and the girls get better and better!

Tipper and the Blind Pig Gang,
I thought that you might like to know that I emailed your first video to a friend of mine in Alabama and he loved it! I think that you have a new fan. He spent all day listening to the player and had the best time. Said it put a spring in his step all day! He use to live in Tennessee and said that he was missing "mountain music" more than he knew. :)

Love the Wordle! Enjoyed the Historical Society performance - was great to see you guys full screen, too. Noticed that there is more than a glimmer of pride from Pap when the girls are performing.

I have never seen one of those, nor have I heard of one. It looks like fun. I think it would be a great vocabulary fun exercise. Thanks for the idea!

Having the Blind Pig Gang sing for me at the start of my day put a smile on my face and joy in my soul. Thank you for sharing.

Tipper--Listening to Parts 2 and 3 of the Blind Pig Gang's performance was a nice fillip to get the morning started. I particularly enjoyed the haunting lyrics of "A Candle in the Wind." I'm old enough to realize that boyhood improves with age, and it seems the farther away it gets the nicer it becomes. In truth though, I had a magical mountain boyhood, like a lot of regulars here, and I look back on it with surpassing fondness. I suspect that he general thrust of the thoughts underlying the song, with a hardy son of the mountains standing guard with his trusty slingshot, runs as a bright thread through the fabric of many a memory.

As for the wordle, I'm going to have me one of them rascals, and maybe I figure out how to use it to lead out my December website newsletter.
