The Traveler is FINALLY on its way to @SharonC. Fedex told me she should get it on Monday by end of day, but receipt says Saturday, Oct 1. We'll see.

Here are a few pictures while I was getting it ready. Nothing exciting, but documents the event.

@JohnG Saying goodbye to her is kind of sad and exciting at the same time, isn't it? Sad to say goodbye, but exciting to see her with her next host(ess). 

You gave her a good temporary home, JohnG. The two of you made beautiful music. 

Thank you for the wonderful videos and sharing her visit.

"Thanks for the memories." It had to be said.

@Mouse - Thank you and it was bittersweet to give her up. Played a couple tunes to say goodbye. And I know @SharonC will do her more justice than I, but I doubt that she will enjoy her more than I did.

And to finish off your sentiment.

Awfully glad I met you
Cheerio and tootle-loo
Thank you
Thank you so much

@Mark - Thanks, I just wish I could have devoted more time during her stay AND that I could have done her the justice she deserved.

@ELCBK - Thanks, Emily. I wouldn't have missed this time with it for anything. I appreciate the kind words, and the fact that I'm probably the first beginner violist to host her is a worthy addition to her legacy.

@JohnG  You've been an excellent host.  Thought for sure you were going to trade in you viola for a violin!  Just kidding! smile

I should get her tomorrow--will let everyone know when I do--

@ABitRusty thanks! It's Florida Blues from Mark O'Connor's Method Book 2.  I played it in one of the parties--
