    For 41 years, I have had the piano that my mom leaed how to play on when she was a young girl. I can still remember the piano being in my grandmother's house until it came to our house when I was 6. That's when I started taking lessons. When I was 20, my dh and my father-in-law picked it up at my parent's house and moved it to our home out at the ranch and that is where it has been for 41 years. I have so many wonderful, fun memories playing for the Christmas programs at school, Spring concerts, sing alongs at home and just playing to relieve stress. Memories of my oldest dd polishing it with hand lotion (not recommended), then a few years later, taking her own lessons on it, tire tracks on the bench from my son's hotwheels cars…lots of memories. Today, my piano left and headed for my dd's house. My oldest dgd is going to start taking lessons and I hope she can create lots of wonderful memories from this wonderful old piano! 🙂

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
