I'm heading up to the Granite City, Aberdeen, in Scotland with our friend Annie today! Billy is going on a big hike in the lakes with Annie's husband John and we'll meet up tomorrow in Dundee where we'll play at the Dundee Acoustic Music on Wednesday! So excited to be heading to Scotland again! 

To celebrate, here's one of my very favorite songs - "Aberdeen" written and performed by Kirsty McGee.

Dr. Ralph Stanley

On the Death of Dr. Ralph Stanley

All things fall into place
The reading is over
The book is closed,
And put back on the shelf
Where parting is no more
Where no storm rages.
Oh, the rock of ages.

You were not spared,
But you shall have your
Sit down at the picnic
Dinner on the ground
Catch a cloud
And go
On up to that high atmosphere.

We'll sing here,
Spared for another year.

Goodnight, hallelujah 

- Jeni Hankins

This is what I'll be up to today on account of the sudden rush in Britain on Jeni-made cushions! Thanks to everyone who has bought a cushion. If you know we are coming your way and you'd like a cushion, it would be great if you could let me know. I only have a few more of the ones that I made in the USA and brought with me, so I am making new ones here and it would be helpful to think about how much sewing I should do...they are 45 pounds, all hand stitched by me!
