Shocked

Well,  I can pull off a green dress quiet well!

 Cheesy



<Insert devil emote>

But does the green dress go with your hat?  *Ducks and runs away really really quickly*  Wink

Sorry, just couldn't pass that up. It's really bad to feed my warped sense of humor, especially at 630 am!!

I love that company. Here's my next project, for my Daughters of Kali initiation. I'm making it in black silk/cotton with red/pink satin trim Smiley

I got a perfectly good Singer for my daughter off freecycle this summer. She doesn't know it's actually my back up machine, in case the good old Bernina I inherited from my mom keels over Wink

I can understand that. I have one and I have always seen it as a white elephant. They are expensive to keep up and although they are valued at $1,000 or more you can't give 'em away. No one wants one unless it it is in top notch condition inside and out, so, to sell it for $1,000 you would have to put in over twice that on refinishing and interior overhaul.  Tongue

It's not just crazy to just get rid of a piano.  It is also kinda stupid (especially a nice looking one in working order).

Someone that crazy needs to be in the loony bin, imo.

Nope, not really. If you are moving they cost big bucks to move, you have to call a piano mover, regular movers won't touch 'em. Plus they take up a lot of room, and if you don't play that much, well, you just might want to lighten your load. If I ever move again, the piano will stay with the house, I won't tote it along again.

I have better reasons for being carted off to the looney bin anyway.  Cheesy

Nope I have a white elephant piano as well. Can't give them away around here, there's usually a couple a week on freecycle.

 Mine's an old family one so I am truly stuck with it. It's not playable but to get it back into playable condition will cost about 3 times what it's worth and as no one here really plays either it isn't worth it. I tried to learn but I have no aptitude.

Even local charities here won't take them. Mine is playable, but not the pedals. Like you, I don't want to put big money into it so I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, (about all I remember from childhood lessons.)

I had the opportunity to buy the one that had been in my grandfather's house, but I didn't.  The thing hadn't been tuned in 20 years and the guys at the music store said I was smart, because tuning it would have been dangerous to the person tuning it and we probably could never have gotten the thing back into tune anyhow.  COmpletely ignoring all the bad vibes that would have come with it from the 2nd wife.

I used to have a rosewood upright (that I could sort of play).  I stored it at my brother-in-law's and he, thinking that nobody played, or possibly thinking that I had given it to him, turned it into a rather cool wet-bar.

It fit in well in his farmhouse living room, and I've never had a big enough room for it anyway, so it wasn't a big deal.  I've seen them turned into pretty cool aquariums, too.
