Oh The Joy Of It All


Today I mentioned to Don again that I really really wanted a piano. So on a whim I looked on craigslist - and found one - for 100.00. Now that is an exceptional price for any piano - but wait - this is a good one.


Beautiful carvings . . .


Fabulous wood . . .



More carvings and spindles . . .


This is a Harrington Upright Grand Piano - the tone is fabulous - all the original ivories are there - a gorgeous piano - and mine, all mine. We drove out to Maple Falls today to pay for it - and will get it delivered early next week. I just can hardly wait. Now to find a nice piano bench to go with it.

I've wanted another piano ever since we sold ours before we moved to WA 10 years ago - and now I have one. A very special one. Would you like to come over for some music?

Your piano is probably the most beautiful upright I have ever seen. That is one amazing price you got that for! ~Lili
