Gypsy-made violin

This violin has been in the attick of my Grandfather's brother.

It was his late wife's violin. And when I was a very young boy I could have it,

he said, if I climb up there myself, as he was already 80 years of age.

So I did, it was an exiting adventure as it was pretty difficult.

There were no floorboards up there, so you had to stay on the wooden beams.

As I come to think of it, it was very dangerous, because I could have fallen

through the ceiling of the bedroom underneath.

Anyway I got the violin downstairs in one piece.

Later in time the violin fell apart because of humidity I guess.
