@bryansong I was just surprised about the piano. May have missed something in the thread, but it was MY first time seeing that instrument pop up in any shop. I don't have a piano in my shop, although there are a couple of dark corners that might host a violin (spider that is).

I do have a lizard in there now and again, which is fine because they eat any bugs. I think the piano situation would be complicated depending on whether it is a spinet, upright, baby grand or grand. Harder to attach anything to the curves on a grand.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That's pretty funny Tom, the piano is in the room above the shop so when you said I'd have to go vertical that would put me in the piano room.

@bryansong That explains it. Do you or your wife play? A live piano makes the most beatiful sound. I was at a meeting in San Diego one time when I walked outside the meeting room and found one of the more interesting docs out there playing on a well tuned grand he'd found. He was very good.

Good thing about the piano room, nailing it up to a ceiling would have ruined the finish.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I use to play but haven't lately, I should do it more. I'm from a family of musicians. Our children too lessons and occasionally one daughter will sit down and play. Now the young grandchildren play with it a little and I'll play something for them. I'm sure grandma will insist on getting lessons when they get older.

My daughter is engaged to a musician. He happens to be blind, and his guitar work is studio quality. They have a trio and perform with local groups, including opening for tribute musicians that the local promoter brings to town. My daughter sings rather well. She now runs my consulting business, so the music is a sideline, but she sure enjoys performing.

That's nice Tom, you probably love to hear her sing.
I am a singer too but did most of my singing in church or Christian music. I did get to sing for my two daughter's weddings so that was a treat for me.

@bryansong A really good friend of mine lives in Charlotte and sings in the Charlotte Symphony Choir and also in his church. He just married a woman who sings opera and performs all over the country. She is a very happy lady. Oddly enough, another lady I've known for decades recently married a tenor who sings opera. Music has only recently become interesting, since I got the latest in hearing aids. These have a tiny speaker that goes into the ear with the receiver and electronics behind the ear. I can understand lyrics again after nearly 40 years of not understanding a word. Really nice.
