It is Fiddlerman's birthday, today, so let's throw him a party.

Go to his tutorials or downloadable sheet music songs and play one of his tutorials or downloadable sheet music songs. Let's pay tribute to all the help and guidance he has given throughout the DECADES! Hey, can't be completely serious, just not in my bones.

Seriously, play a song from Fiddlerman's tutorials or downloadable sheet music songs.

I have not done mine yet because I just thought if this. Someone in my house is not up yet, so, I have to wait.

We are all at different levels, so, it is fine to repeat a song for this party, the purpose is to honor and thank Fiddlerman on his day.

Does not have to be today. I am not sure I will get mine done today. I should have thought of this earlier. I have to practice after I pick one. This party can go on for as long as we want.

Hey, you all did great jobs here! Thanks for participating in my party for Fiddlerman's birthday. If anyone else wants to join in, please do. If anyone wants to submit another offering from Fiddlerman’s list of free sheet music downloads, go for it! I might do another later.

@Fiddlerman -

Well Pierre, I'm late and don't think this is the kind of testimony that you deserved for your Birthday Party - especially for all the great tutorials you make for us. 🤣 

Been pretty nasty this last week, but got a weather break today - maybe you'll appreciate my attempt to 'Fool with Mother Nature', in this Party offering? 😁

Btw, I'm happy where I'm at... all because of what you do here.  

Thank You!

...my bow was no match for 'Mother Nature'. 😖

@ABitRusty -

Thanx - it felt good to be out in fresh air & the sun, but I'm payin' fir it! 😖

NO use in trying to record a 2nd take - felt like someone grabbed hold of my bow & kept trying to yank it out of my hand! 

...maybe 2 somebodies grabbed it. (lol)

You are both very sweet!

If you watch my video in the HD setting, there's a small boat (well, it's larger than we could ever afford) that runs by behind me. This view is actually overlooking the 'Anchor Bay' part of Lake Saint Clair.  

A few minutes away, on the South side of the point at the Metro Park, it's a better view of the greater part of the lake - too far away to see across to Canada from there, but can usually see the huge Lake Freighters off in the distance. 

Lake Saint Clair is part of the 'Great Lakes Waterway'. 

Great Lakes Waterway

An amazing diverse amount of large vessels sail the Great Lakes.  If anyone is interested, here's a list of the current fleet on the Great Lakes and access to more info from 'Ship Watcher News'. 

Great Lakes Ships

Wikipedia has a nice overview of Great Lakes Freighters.  

Lake Freighter

We get the best 'up close' views of these impressive ships just a little further North, anywhere along the Saint Clair River, which comes down from Lake Huron.  Also, the Detroit River runs south from Lake Saint Clair to Lake Erie.

Lake St Clare is an incredible 👏fishing lake very large smallmouth bass along with walleye,  musket and other fish I've been wanting to fish it in the month of April but have not made it there yet.
