PIANO BAR - LUNCHEON MENU

Post by Colin Nicholson » 24 Mar 2012, 16:42

Hi Guys, I couldnt resist showing you this! An ex - pupil of mine recently bought a piano on ...... you know where? .... yes.... starts with E and ends with Y !!

Bought it completely BLIND.... not even a photo of it on the main screen - but he 'liked the description' !!!! Its a 1980's Waldstein ...... sounds not too bad, one or broken treble strings, and 3 broken bass strings (from the bi-chords) .... action a bit 'clicky' .... I think you know what is coming! ??

He invited me to look over it (normally, its a 'can you tune my piano please') - but this time, rather hesitant and sheepish. OK.... I went out there with my breathing apparatus on, and bee - keeping outfit!

OH YES...... a beauty! .... RIDDLED completely with insect & arachnid damage - the full monte! Well, just for a laugh, after we discussed 'what they like to dine on' - we came up with a MENU!! (this is just the starter by the way!!)

Here is a selection of the fine cuisine menu these spiders had for lunch .....

Loved it Colin. :lol:
(I note that there's no mention of having swilled it down with a delicate and subtle mouse's urine white wine)..... :o
Bonne appétit!
I was playing the piano in a zoo, when the elephant burst into tears. I said, "Don't you recognize the tune?" He replied, "No, I recognize the ivories!"
