So here is the piano I bought from Dominic. He delivered it just moments ago. I stumbled through a few pieces on it--enough to see that it is so out of tune that even I notice it. At some point I suppose I will have Greg Biss come and tune it, but I really play so poorly that it matters very little how the instrument sounds.
The addition of another piece of furniture to my already crowded dining room really cramps the space, but I am happy with my purchase. I have always had a piano, and it seems only right that one has come back into my life. I have no illusions that this time I will actually learn to play it any better than I ever have, but I like seeing it there-----a giant knick-knack.
