For the Children

Your children will love this catchy little tune.

Down in the MEadow

Down in the meadow where th sky is so blue,
Lives Tigger and Eeore and his best friend Pooh.

BOUNCE! Says Tigger! BOUNCE! Says Pooh!
la la la la la la la la la la la la…

I think you’ve got to lay off the Fruit Loops MH…

God honestly, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

I love it

Or lay off the HONEY!

Makes a great reel and there is no duplicate or even close duplicate here on the session! Or is there…..

Are you throwing down the cereal bowl? (gauntlet)

And Dow, really, "calling the kettle black"?

"BOUNCE! Says Tigger. BOUNCE! Says Pooh.
La luh la dai iddle dai aye ~

I hope you notice ~ ‘added bounce’… 😉

Hey MH, any red spruce in your neck of the woods? I’m hankering for that sort of bounce in some soundboard wood…

Bounce and Spruce

Your good at the ABC and definitely added the bounce to Tigger’s Fling.

Although once common, big trees are rare. I sort of have a fascination for the tree which is making a comeback in the Allegheny region. I wrote a tune called Red Spruce.
My cousin makes instruments and may have some connections to some red spruce, he used to run a lumber store in West Virginia and uses a lot of local woods.

Well, I’d settle for the tune for now… 😉 I love trees and they deserve all the positive promotion they can get…
