A surprise in the mail

February 24, 2008

Journal, Lauren

On Friday when I got home, there was a suspicious package on the doorstep with no return address. I documented the opening in case it turned out to be a bomb and Lloyd needed to know why I was ‘sploded. (I’m sure my camera would have survived.)


They obviously have purchased a monitor....

Was this sent by old people?

A clue!

Hmmmm...I know a lot of Rachels....

Mystery solved! It’s a violin uke from Rae (formerly known as Rachel). I can’t wait to play it! It’s going to take some tuning, though.

A violin uke!!

Even better, though, were the included paintings. I’m guessing Gracen and Anna had a little to do with them, right?

Love the colors!

    I’ll be expecting a concert this summer.

    What the heck is a violin ukulele? Did they just smash two instruments together and call it something that would make people want to learn to play it? I think I’ll invent a new thing called a trumpet piano. Or how about a clarinet kettle-drum?

    Yay for surprises in the mail … even if I don’t really know what it is either. Do you play it with a bow? Do you play it in the snow? Can you play it without fear? Can you play it without beer?

    I’m so glad you didn’t spode!
