Happy Birthday...+ Zarh Myron Bickford

I just wanted to thank everybody for the nice e-birthday gifts, etc. I don't usually celebrate such things any more (I get a card from my wife and one from my favorite niece) but it was nice of y'all to think of me!

On another note...I have been buying some sheet music from a peculiar seller on ebay. This seller seems to have a wide variety of unusual Classic Banjo sheets including songbooks and tutors I've never heard of. He keeps saying he's got a large storage unit filled with stock and every time I think he's run out...he shows up with more.

So...now I find that he is selling these items from the estate of Zarh Myron Bickford! Bickford was primarily a mandolinst but did a large amount of arranging for the 5-string banjo from about 1915-1930's. I have a number of the early "Remick" popular song/tune books from just post WWI that he edited/arranged.

So...he has hinted that there is a large quantity of vintage mandolin music in his storage unit but cannot seem to find buyers. Anyone interested? I'm hoping that if I find some buyers for his mandolin stuff, maybe he'll cut me a better deal on the banjo stuff.
