I am practicing on Top of Old Smokey and I am not sure the proper way to do the two up bows in a row.  Do I just use a part of teh bow for each note?  Do I stop then continue?  Do I pick up the bow and go back to the frog and do a completely different motion?

Hey, I am easy to confuse 🙂

Yes. Use two short bows with the amount of rest required to get exactly the length note that you desire. Sing it and try to imitate the length of the notes that you get when singing.
Don't lift to go back to the frog. Use you bow in fractions to equal the time you need for the rhythm you are attempting to achieve.
