It’s great to hear that the new band pickup violin that I purchased and gave to my cousin for Christmas is a big hit. Her band is going to play at the next high school dance, which is scheduled to be held in the spring. I wish I could go, but I fear that I would embarrass her in front of all of her friends and classmates, by having someone my age hanging around while they play.
It is a rarity that I receive a hand written thank you letter/card, so when I found one in my mailbox, it really made my day. All I ever get in the U.S. Mail is junk mail and bills. I didn’t even get any Christmas cards this year. Everything seems to be online or nothing.
