So we have this piano (above). Nice isn’t it?
O.k so it’s not really a piano, but that’s what we all call it. Anyway, at one of the thrift stores I frequent, they have 3 upright pianos. They have been there for about a month, so the price keeps dropping. They are now at $150. There is one really nice old one. It is walnut colored and has some neat carving in the front of it. It looks really old and it sounds terrible. I mean awful. It also has a few wood missing injuries.
I sure want a piano in our home. I don’t know if it is repairable. Maybe it just needs a tune-up or it could need $2000. worth of work and still not be fixed. Hmmm. But $150. ! That’s about what Keely’s little play sink cost. That just doesn’t seem right. We don’t really have room for a piano. I took lessons for a brief period back in the day, but don’t remember a thing. So, no one in our house knows how to even play. Unless you count “Twinkle, Twinkle”. I don’t have $150. burning a hole in my pocket either, but there is always those handy tax returns, right?
No room, might not work, no one plays. This seems like a no brainer but still I want the thing. Pardon this me thinking out loud post. And how would we get a piano home? I’m guessing it wouldn’t fit in our car. And how…..oh, I can go on and on….I’ll spare you all.
