i did a lot of gardening early today whilst waiting for the wow-dude to come and fix my dvr box.  then we went out and checked out a baby grand that needs a good home…

if you know me at all, you know that i’ve always wanted a grand piano.  i would settle for a baby grand since that would actually fit in my home, but there is nothing finer than playing a grand piano.  it’s just…well, fulfilling?  anyway, friend debbie e.  called the other day with news that a baby grand was available for the right price.  it’s a 1933 stroud, inherited by the owner from her grandmother; however, she doesn’t really play.  they refurbished it about 20 years ago, but only tuned it 3 times since..!  it does sound a bit off, but another tuning would probably make a big difference.  i’m going to call the guy who restored it and recently tuned it and see what he thinks, but i’m pretty sure it’s going to be Mine…
