I am sorry for my absence, it has been an awful 6 months.
My wife sufferred a stroke Labour Day weekend, and has been slowly recovering. She lost a lot of memory and the paralysis on her left side has begun to fade.
To be honest, I have looked in on the site a few times, but between work and tending to my wife, I have not even thought about the picks package. I don't remember who responded to my original emal, except that the people who did respond had already received the package once.
I will attempt to send it off soon - so somebody give me an address, please, and it will be gone inside a week.
Again, I am sorry that I have been totally remiss in moving it forward, but will make ammends.
As an aside, in the early days after her stroke, when Patty was barely communicating, I would play and sing to her, and she actually sang along, somewhat. Doctors encouraged me to continue, and her vocal abilities are almost back to normal. She has memory "blackouts", stuff she just can't remember, but communicates as well as she dd pre-stroke. She is also gaining against the paralysis in her left arm, the leg has recovered about 90 percent. I can leave her alone at home now, without a full time attendant. We have a nurse that visits once a day, but my soon be able to cut that to a once or twice a week visit.
Her doctor believes that the music sparked her memories, and aided in "unscrambling" her thought processes, which allowed for a much more extensive and rapid recovery than we thought was possible. Musical miracle, I'd say, considering my limited attributes as a musician.
Anyway, once again, sorry for the lag,
