Only 24 shopping days til Christmas

I think I am going to pop into the music store today and buy my mother an Irish tinwhistle that comes with a CD or tape so she can learn to play it by ear. She refuses to learn to read music. I was going to buy her an autoharp, but couldn't track down a how-to book that I thought she would read so I figured it would just sit in the closet.

Get your mother the Walton's Little Black Whistle (or the Guiness Black Whistle). I just bought it 2 days ago while my violin is being repaired and am having a blast with it. It has a beautiful tone plus it looks sleek and cool.

Anyway, for Christmas, I want a silent violin so that I can practice late without getting on anyone's nerves!

I guess, something that I really would want, but I know I can't get is....my first violin that I ever had. It was a 1/2 violin and we made a deal that we would trade it in for a 3/4 size when I was ready. We traded it in, and I have never seen it or the 3/4 size violin again. (We sold the 3/4 size.) I wish I would have kept them. That would be a great Christmas gift for me...but, I think it is almost impossible, because I hardly remember what it even looks like or where it might be or who may have it.

But, other than that, for Christmas, I think about anything musical is a wonderful gift to give another musician. Books are great.

Well, I'm very fortunate to get to ride in Hubby's F150, navy blue with extended cab, but I don't want too much. Just a baby grand and a subscription to Strad magazine. HMMMMM... won't be the baby grand this year so, Please Santa, bring me the Strad magazine. (Pricey magazine don't you agree?)

I used get the Strad and one year got the Centenial, I think, still have it. It is a reprint of the first Strad. Very nice.

I would get it again except I cannot play that well. Way to lazy to work at it, allways was. BTW The other day for the first time in nearly 40 years I sat down at a Piano and

played with two hands. Nothing spectacular just a left on the DB 2 to the bar and some silly melody in the right - I think it was in F major or maybe it ended up there.

My Pianist sister wants me to make her a Tape of Fiddle and Clawhammer Banjo for Christmas, I don't want to do it! Instead I started writing a piece in triple meter for the Clawhammer Banjo. It will probably end up done on some wind instrument knowing my luck with such things. Years ago I did some tunes which were grabbed by a multi talented Fiddler for his vast class of students, wonder if there is a recording? He could play Wind or String as well as all the folk instruments, used amaze me.

What do I want. Hummm Please Mr Santa I love you and will be nice to people and other positive things if only you would get me a Harpsicord for this festive season, it does not have to be new, used would be fine, just so long as it works. Many hugs and other things that you like - including the Harmonica I got for my 10th Birthday, it still works too.

I want a thermos and some flavored coffees to go in it. (to carry to my lesson)

A few weeks ago, I purchased my new Doetsch violin, new case, a couple of new bows. Back in the summer, I bought the Yamaha Silent Violin. I am a pretty happy camper.

Now, I just want to cuddle my husband by the fireplace in my new flannel pajamas, sip flavored coffee, and watch the wonder of Christmas morning on my kids' faces! Ahhhh, life is grand!

I wanna new case with backpack straps (so I won't hurt my shoulder when lugging it around), subscriptions to Strad and Strings, ten mutes (so I'll never lose them all right before a CBC recording again!) an extra bow with rainbow-colored hair (they do make them!) and a spiccato that works perfectly every day, every time!

The perfect Christmas for me would be one where no gifts were exchanged, and the family got back to the real meaning of Christmas. Not Santa, not presents, not even the tree...just family. The commercialism of Christmas would be forgotten, and the stress over spending time and money to get that "perfect" gift would be erradicated. Just a simple day of joy, laughing, and maybe even some good ol' music would be the greatest Christmas I could ask for.
