Warning**No Knitting Content! Okay, so I'm getting ready to brag about my wonderful hubby...
Aboard the Rebecca T Ruark~Tighlman Island 2004
If you've been reading for a while you know Hubby makes and sells Native American Style Flutes, woodworking is to him what knitting and fiber is to me. He has a website but mostly sells his flutes on Ebay. While on a camping trip earlier this summer my mother told us about something she saw on the news~~Operation Happy Note, a charity to provide our soldiers overseas musical instruments for their entertainment, and I'm sure to forget the sights and sounds of the day.
My sweet, wonderful Hubby made 3 flutes and shipped them off late last week! I know stringed instruments do have a calming note (pun intended) but there's something about the soothing sound of a Native American flute that you get lost in. I'm hoping that there are some Native American soldiers who will receive one or all of these flutes, something that will bring them "home" as they play! With each flute Hubby wrote a letter offering wishes of getting satisfaction from his flute and a safe return home and asked for the recipient to please contact him. It's going to be so exciting when he gets that first note! If anyone else out there has an old, unused instrument they'd like to donate please go to the link and find out how and where to send them!
Okay...I'm done! He is WONDERFUL you know!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
