10 Months Later - "Stairway to Heaven" Progress

So it has been 10 months since I bought this old upright piano at an auction and here is how my playing "Stairway to Heaven" sounds today.

I tried to get another piano tuner/technician to come by and give me a quote on refurbishing the action of this piano and he didn't even bother to show up for his appointment or call me to cancel.  When I called his home, his wife said he wasn't interested.  I don't know what I'm going to do to get some of my stuck keys working again.  I really need that "E".............

Hope you enjoyed my video.  Meanwhile, I'll keep practicing as best I can.
Thanks for stopping by.

Midnight Skulking

Skulk - to lurk about, sneak, to move in a stealthy or furtive manner.

I guess this applied to both the subjects of this photograph and myself.

I have been trying all winter to catch a glimpse of these illusive creatures.
I wish I had been more skilled with the camera.   Unfortunately I haven't been using it much and have lost what little skill I had with the night photography.

Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy your day.

Liar, liar.......

This Acu-rite outdoor thermometer is  really "acu-wrong"............the real temperature is 39 degrees fahrenheit.  Gettin' our hopes up!

You'd think it was April Fool's Day or something!
Thanks for stopping by.

Owl's Head Transportation Museum in Owl's Head, Maine

Spent the day out on the coast yesterday and visited the Owl's Head Transportation Museum.  Great place, and can't wait to go back during the summer season for one of their outdoor auctions or shows.
I hope you enjoy this photos.

cool ride.......

adding one of these to my wish list

 and this Piper Cub................

Wow, didn't know I wanted so much until today.  We had a fabulous time at the museum.  Met lots of nice folk then stopped for a wonderful meal at Moody's Diner on Route 1 in Waldoboro, ME.   Lots of wonderful food, the waitstaff was pleasant and Mike was impressed with the cleanliness of the old fashion style restroom.    

Here's what I want to travel around the country in when Mike retires.

The inside is sooooooooo pretty and lots of storage space too. 

I think I can still climb up into that loft-style bed.

Aren't tiny houses all the rage these days???

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you are having a wonderful one.
