Ilona - That's true for me here, too!  For my "Mortimer", I'd need a coat from one of my Grandkids (lol). 

It's starting to feel like... 

https://media.tenor.co/images/03600b41152ea32e3fb20e5647f12e20/rawMaybe a little early - I was going to suggest this for a Christmas GP, but I think it fits here.  

Many Fiddlers, Violists and Cellists here in the USA are not old enough to remember "Captain Kangaroo" & "Mr. Green Jeans", or them singing "I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas"! 

 

I actually have this album (LP)! 

I think I'll have to learn to play this for the Grandkids.

I do remember these guys (& Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit), and this song. 

Your mentioning this song reminded me of Henrietta Hippo – in New Zoo Revue—remember that?

SharonC - I'm afraid I'm clueless about that one.

Just checked - appears I was in High School when that show started!  It stopped showing before my daughter was born, so didn't have it for her either (lol)!

Got my new violin strings from Fiddlershop today. Love them!!!!

Except........They forgot to send me the talented fingers that go along with them.

Guess I'll call customer service on Monday.

ROFL @grandpafiddle !

I had a similar "issue" with Fiddlershop a few years back....  In fact I had to send a very strongly-worded email to them - I had purchased a Fiddlerman hat/cap - and NO - it DID NOT make me play like Pierre !!!  LOLOLOL

Mike and I had ( all in fun and jest I have to add! ) a great laugh over my "complaint"

drummerdrummerdrummerroflroflrofl

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Sometimes piccolo could be handier, or the violin.... Fortunately I don't need to travel with my cello by airplane.... I would need to buy a seat for it. 😂
