Fiddlers

I couldn't resist snapping this animal string band. They are each so cute. It made me think of that old nursery rhyme "Old King Cole". That had three fiddlers, but there are five here.




Old King Cole was a merry old soul,

And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe, and he called for his bowl,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Every fiddler he had a fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he;
Oh there's none so rare, as can compare,
With King Cole and his fiddlers three.
