We did it!!!! Thanks to all who gave a gift, my lovely brother Jim is so lucky in his friends and family. He is going out to buy his guitar and has promised to post a photo of it on facebook. Happy Birthday Jim! xxx
If you didn’t get a chance to donate, you still can:
In Jim’s own words:
“My guitar, it has gone far!
Maybe it’s gone to Zanzibar?
It didn’t even say “Ta-ta”,
Or, in Norwegian – “Ha det bra”
“In Norway, was this photo shot
The last known image that I’ve got
Of this thing, which I forgot
Where last I put it…dot, dot, dot!
“Even though it has my name,
Taped upon its wooden frame,
It wanders wild. It is not tame,
Some day soon, I’ll do the same!
“Farewell to you, dear wood and glue,
With strings and things for tuning too,
Maybe one day we will renew,
Our music partnership so true!
“Meanwhile, I’ll buy a guitar NEW!
“If I could find some money too!”
