Great! We'll give you credit, Bruce, just to avoid any malicious lawsuits instigated by the Folk Music Journal. (Big fat grin.)

I once looked through a book of Oscar Brand's and noticed at the bottom of every single page the notice that the song on that page had "new words and music" by Oscar Brand and was copyrighted. Funny thing, though, "Yankee Doodle" and "Little Brown Jug" looked exactly as I had learned them in my childhood. Maybe I was misremembering? (Another big fat grin!)

Sandy, the Doubting Thomas.

P.S. Karen K. is highly prejudiced, Catspaw, because every year we double her previous year's salary for the work she does in our festival sales booths. Thank goodness my senior accountant convinced me that doubling "zero" still comes out "zero." But don't tell Karen! She still thinks she's getting rich. (I flunked math, myself.)
