....:)...She has very little confidence and so going for lessons would be a trial for her. Her father has far too much pride to seek a loan,<quoted text>I think violin lessons would be cheaper. She gets to play a violin (unless she has to bring her own instrument) but hopefully, he could borrow from someone who trusts him to pay back in installments, see if there is a layaway plan,or find out from Harry Belefonte how those scarlet ribbons really did wind up on the bed in gay profusion???? Anyway, happeeeeee SInday, El, Grace, and kitchen helpers.
in spite of his wife telling him 'pride comes before a fall', he just wont' entertain the idea. He was once a famous concert violinist and is now suffering from clinical depression, he feels if he could buy that violin it would give both him, and his daughter, a new lease of life. A reson d'etre.
He has dreams of playing along to his tapes of Yehudi Menuin..one of the few possessions he has not taken to the hock shop.
