The New Addition Revealed!

Hopefully you figured out from the description I gave of our "new addition" that we are NOT having a baby right now.  Although I do have to admit that when I picked that title, I was hoping to trick at least a few of you into thinking that :)  The new addition is....a piano!!!

We bought it for $100 from someone at Joe's office and I'm so excited to have a piano in the house now!  When Joe saw the listing on the for sale boards at Garmin, he forwarded it to me, and we decided to check it out.  It had been in their garage for a couple months after they got new hardwood floors installed and just didn't want to move the piano back inside.  Overall it was in good condition, but there was one key that stuck, two that wouldn't strike, and the damper pedal didn't seem to work.  I did some searching about those problems and found that they would be relatively simple fixes, so we decided to go for it!  

The piano movers came yesterday, and the guy who moved the piano also happened to be the owner/tuner/repairman so he fixed the pedal and sticking key right away and took the 2 non-working keys with him to fix and bring back.  I've already been playing it some and luckily a few of the songs I had memorized a long time ago came back to me at least a little.  Well, that's all I really had for tonight.  I just wanted to fill you all in just in case you hadn't figured it out from my bad clues yesterday.  I hope you all have a great weekend!

Oh, and here are a couple pictures showing the multiple personalities of our kitty friend, Chase.  :)
