• Please begin by telling us anything you would like to about yourself. Age, place of birth, residence, etc.
To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born (as I have been informed and believe) On September 30,1965.   Toni Colleen is my name.
I have been in California all my life and until I know otherwise, I believe it is one of the best places to live.  I have two raised children that live away from home.  I am a first time empty-nester. Since I was 18 I have not lived in a home with children.  My daughter is 23 this year and my son 27. I have two grandchildren Elliott who is 6 and Abigail who is nine months.  Grandchildren are pretty much the most unexpected wonder of my life so far.

I am married and I have a 4 year old Basset Hound named Dexter, and a 11 year old Chihuahua named Le Le.  I live in Roseville, California.  I knit, spin, crochet, cross stitch, and cook, and I have a full time job that keeps me just busy enough…

What a lovely interview! Thanks for sharing pieces of your life with us Toni.
I am proud to have been even a little bit of help for you in your passion for the violin along with the other loopies here at Fiddlerman.com

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

I wouldn't want to bet against her on that vibrato thing Clint. I've heard her do it a couple of times and she is right on the edge of success...

 

Awesome interview... I feel like she's one of the family now for sure...Nice picture too....

Looks like she might be getting ready to go on tour with Pierre! How professional....

Thank you cdennnyb!

You heard vibrato? From me?  Okay....sure you did... uh huh.. I will play for you all the time. And you will share of my glorious vibrato news bunny_pole_dancerto all in the world. Yep... I have been hiding it.

 

Ps keep telling that to Clint... I need to "ice" him while Ole Roy is in the Hospital.

 

PSS don't you dare go "juicing" up his violin to be better than mine...  ha ha..

Great interview, Coolpink!

And your pics, either of them would make good cover art for when you put out your debut CD.

That is a hard question.  But I love to knit and drink wine.

Knitting! Always admired the people who can knit! Once in the the school we had to knit a sock confused! ... Mine was the smallest one and wasn't look like a sock for a human at all!

 

Happy to meet You, Toni! =)

Great interview, Toni.
