3. Thank you so much, my dear FalloutShelter!

It was being tuned, so of course it was open, and I was struck by its beauty.

5. Do you play, Peggy?

I took lessons when I was a kid and never took to it, but was happy later, when I got into vocal music- that I could read music.

7. Alas, no, but my husband does, and he's good!

I love to hear him play. He plays and I dance a little, sort of!

11. How wonderful.

My mother played and my fist husband was a concert pianist. I LOVE to hear the piano played.
It's a wonderful gift.

6. Is that your piano? I'm jealous.

I have an upright that's gone badly out of tune. Now that I've been vaccinated I can finally get a (vaccinated) piano tuner to come in and take care of it because right now it's painful to listen to. Piano engineering is really interesting.

9. Thanks so much, my dear Ocelot II!

It's really my husband's piano. It was a gift from his mom many years ago.

He's been very happy with it.

They sure do need tuning! Ours gets tuned twice a year whether he's played a lot or not. It always sounds great to my ears.

12. I miss playing

I started lessons when I was in first grade and studied until I graduated college. Loved to play, but the arthritis in my fingers has slowed me way down in that area.

Thanks for the beautiful photo!

13. I'm sure you do, my dear Dave in VA...and what a shame you had to stop.

Arthritis spoils so much of life.

When I saw how beautiful the piano is, I knew I had to take a photo!

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

21. Beautiful photo, I feel as though I could pluck the strings



Your husband is a very lucky man. He has you and this beautiful piano. He's got the best of both worlds!
