    Music (classical, violin, viola, mandolin, piano, oboe, bassoon, saxophone and a few others), horses, dogs , cats, parrots, chickens, fish, insects and spiders, oh my! Fitness (martial arts and walking, or both!). Reading when I have time and I can get my progressives to cooperate...
  1. TRIVIA: THIS AND THAT ABOUT THIS AND THAT

    The handle on my case is broken and I couldn't figure out how it worked...but it must be the same as the one on Dr. Addie's case - the design of which I don't recall seeing before... Thanks for posting that!
  2. TRIVIA: THIS AND THAT ABOUT THIS AND THAT

    Ooooh! Very close! I can live with ~1914! Good eye! And researching!
  3. TRIVIA: THIS AND THAT ABOUT THIS AND THAT

    Was Dr. Addie a G.P.? I had found that list of serial numbers...but I can't find anything on the microscope that fits. There are some mostly illegable markings on the base - but they don't look like a serial number regardless. I was trying plan B - picture key...
  4. TRIVIA: THIS AND THAT ABOUT THIS AND THAT

    I am having a hard time making a violin connection here...but what the hey! Just came back from out east and brought this home with me. Can't pinpoint the year. Anyone happen to know? Spencer Buffalo. Think it's prior to 1920...
  5. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    We had a flood...our shower drain leaked...soaked through the floor...into the basement. Praise be for ceiling tiles! Now we have to dry out the area (hubby hung a heater up in the rafters) - and clean the mold - before the plumbers can repair the issue. You really really have my sympathies...
  6. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    ...as it should be...
  7. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    No end of strong female figures...some with whips...
  8. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    Sad...but awesome! story!
  9. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    Excellent! Clean up all done? *runsandhides*
  10. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    Cool! Nice to know that they too can survive!
  11. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    Eee! That's a lot of firewood! What happens to bashed boats? We don't have boats on the prairies (well, not enough to count for much at any rate...)
  12. I bought one violin based soley on looks. It sat in the closet until I recently traded it in for a guitar... I can't play the guitar - but at least there's potential there... Just sayin'
  13. What's nice about this one? I'm not being mean - I just don't see it. Funny shape - unless the photos are squashed. Too shiny - refinished? New?
  14. Viola d'Amore check in, please?

    Glad you are back. ..even if you're a bit battered and bruised!
  15. Nail polish remover is acetone. I'm sure if you use it wisely and in moderation - you'll be fine. But I still wouldn't use it on varnished surfaces...
