An old friend returns

Pearly whites

Allow me to wax nostalgic for a moment. This piano has resided in my Grandma Davis' house for nearly as long as I can remember being able to see. Its served many a purpose for all those many years in her home, be it a piano, an extra place to sit, a make-shift buffet table, a time waster, a good way to annoy the parents, etc. But, time took its toll on its tuning and Grandma decided that it was time to purchase a newer one. So this ole girl went to storage for a while.

But after some help from Aunt Suzanne and some hard work by some tuners, its back into good shape, and thankfully, its now in our home in Shawnee. It really means a lot to me to have something as special as this from my Grandma's house now to be in our home.

I look forward to the day when I can see Ella and Amanda sitting together on it playing and sharing some special time with music. Maybe dad can even help on guitar!

Thanks Grandma and Aunt Suzanne for thinking of us!!

Mike, your mother also took three years of piano lessons playing it, but being the non-musician that I am, I never learned to play more than church hymns on it. I remember the day Mother and Daddy brought it home. I couldn't wait to get home from school that day! I am so glad you have it and it looks nice where you put it. By the way, your dad's back is really hurting today. Ha! Ha! Love, Mom
