Hello everyone! It was brought to my attention that I've been gone so long I'm new to a lot of you, so I better reintroduce myself. I'm Andie, I started learning violin in 2013, and now that my kids are all in school I want to get back to devoting time to this fantastic instrument. While the violin playing got neglected over the years, I have grown as a person and learned a LOT about myself, so I'm excited to be coming back stronger than ever! I look forward to meeting new people, and hope to see some old friends as well. I enjoy all varieties of music- classical, celtic, pop, rock, even hip hop- I want to learn it all! Besides music (I also play piano and sing), I enjoy writing stories, drawing, making costumes, and acting. I'm going to find a way to bring all of it together for some really fun performances!

Welcome back. Although the names have all changed (😂😂) ...

Hey, Fiddlerman is wanting to have singing and instruments in the White Christmas Group Project! Just mentioning, not trying to put you on the spot. Completely up to you. There usually is no singing verse, so I wanted to let you know.

I think the forum has changed a but since you were here, so check it out.

Here is a link to the topic thread:

Fiddlerman White Christmas Virtual Group Project

Post 14 is where Fiddlerman first mentions it. 

Again, welcome back and it was a fun chat, hope to see you again.

@Mouse - Singing? I get to sing? I just teared up. I'm so excited for this! Thank you! 

 

@ELCBK - I hope you don't mind, I glanced at your profile. I sense a kindred energetic spirit, I think we're going to be great friends. 😁

 

Thank you both for the warm welcomes~

I think so, too! 🤗 

🤔 Now, is that a Chihuahua, or a Bush Baby I see in your photo? 🤭

(I apologize for the tags not working, I don't know if it's because I'm using my phone or I'm just not doing it properly, I'll have to look up how to do that) 

@ELCBK - Neither, it's a ringtail (not the lemur kind). 😁 I used to have friends who did wildlife rehabilitation so I got to interact with some really fun animals. 😊

@Mark - Thank you!

@AndieKae -

How Cool - I'm glad I asked! 🤗

🤔  Never had a conversation where Ringtails were brought up before!  I resided in Texas and Kansas for awhile, known of Family that had a Raccoon - even had friends with Prairie Dogs! 

One of the Veterinarians I worked for here in Michigan, way back when I was teenager, specialized in Exotic Animals. 😏

@AndieKae - Welcome back. :) It's been a while. I hear you're going to be one of our singers. Looking forward to it. I'm working on the click track now. The tempo will be 110 for all of you who are getting ready.

@BillyG, I quoted it in a reply to katy m in the White Christmas thread because she asked. You should be very worried, we are thinking alike! Not a good thing for your end. But, you could have some fun! 

Ok, back to AndiKae's introduction topic.

@ELCBK - I love exotic animals! 😁 I've had a sugar glider and hedgehogs. I also got to play with a baby raccoon and she was adorable. Every animal is such hard work though, so I think I'm done. 😅

 

@SharonC - Thank you! I'm so excited about the Christmas project. What a great project to come back to.

 

@Fiddlerman - Thank you! The click track sounds sooo good! This is going to be a lot of fun. I'm gonna do my best for this~

 

@BillyG - My favorite Scottish friend! I'm so happy to see you're still here. Are you still playing on StreetJelly? I need to start getting more active over there, too. 😁

 

Well, pulled out the violin for the first time in over two years. 😬 Yeah, that was rough. I feel like I'm worse than ever. 😆 I have really got my work cut out for me. Keep sending that encouragement, I'm gonna need it!

@BillyG - My favorite Scottish friend! I'm so happy to see you're still here. Are you still playing on StreetJelly? I need to start getting more active over there, too. 

  Occasionally, very occasionally ( a year since last time! ).

  Basic issue is getting a number of players to take-part in a set of say 30 min consecutively scheduled shows.  Which makes it close to being impossible for me, "wrong" side of the pond.... hmmm, yeah, not easy....

 I may try to resurrect the "Strings on Sunday" thing once the current pressure of unanticipated work has lessened !  Keep in touch via PM if you fancy going live on SJ, I'll join in !!!
