Couldn't Resist Posting

I don't think they are strong enough for staking vampires...

A clear example of misrepresentation...

Actually if the price doesn't go up much, for someone starting out refurbishing bows - that really isn't a bad deal.

 

We're having some fun here, but way back, when I first started re-hairing bows, I also refurbished old bows much like these - and using them for parts for refurbishing other bows of the same caliber.

Student quality stuff. Where the work never ends.

 

So, I guess it depends on who you are, and what you're doing on a daily basis..,.

With the decline even in the best educational institutions, vampires are about as ignorant as anyone else:  

 

Why, just the other day I was invited to sit in on reading some late Beethoven with three vampires (incidentally also all surgeons with Stradivari).  They have been around long enough to realize that wooden stakes are for vampire killing but not long enough to know that silver bullets are for killing werewolves.  (See what happens when textbooks start glossing over important historical context?)  

 

They prefer to play everything pizzicato.  But I didn't know that, having never been there before.  So I whipped out my Hill bow from the case;  the gleam of the silver tip caught their eyes.  You woulda thunk I was Buffy the Vampire killer!  They recoiled with crinkling eyes and trembling limbs, crying things like, "Fie! and Begone!"  They sent me packing without even a pass at the nice table of cold cuts which I was so looking forward to.

 

They weren't taking any chances:  Pernambuco in the wrong hands is a weapon to be feared by certain personages of long sharp teeth.  And tip a violin bow with something the shape of a bullet, made of silver, and all of a sudden kicking out the only player within a hundred miles capable of negotiating the 1st violin parts seemed like the wiser course of action.  As I was leaving I heard them begin the Strauss "Pizzicato Polka."  

 

As I was passing the neighboring house, an old man on the porch said to me, "Dagnabbit!  I've been here nigh onto 45 years, and that's the only tune those clowns ever play."

Better story than Twilight. :P
