    I hope you get your leg stuck back on again soon, and that your repairer makes a better job of it than after the last time it fell off. Wasn't that at about the same time of year? What a coincidence!

    Meanwhile, enjoy your predicament while it lasts. It isn't often you can play one-handed scales and arpeggios which are ascending and descending at the same time.

    What? I can't possibly imagine what you are referring to.

    But actually, I meant that the other leg fell off. The one at the end of the piano, so now my poor piano rests on the floor on the pointy end and the keyboard is way up high. I have to climb up a ladder to reach the keys. But I still think I will have no problem.

    Don't worry. Next year, the other leg will fall off and you can play it lying on the floor. After that you'll have to think of another April's Fool joke.

    I meant that when the keyboard is sloping the way you said, then if you play a sequence of notes which descends (towards the bass), it is at the same time ascending (because your fingers are going uphill), and vice versa.

    Leglessness is often a sign of overindulging in alcohol. Did you spill some booze into the piano? You need to be more careful, especially when it's not used to it.

    Monica,


    I am envious of you, as you say you have eaten part of a chocolate bunny. As fate would have it, March 31, I had nada!

    O Dear!! I am very sorry that a leg fell off your piano. Surely it isn't a case where the Piano leg cannot support the weight of the piano with the other two legs?! Well. Not to worry about the pedalling. If you can play it in this state (please don't if it causes you excessive stress) and.. I know this is asking a lot, but if you could post a picture of your piano, that would be most intriguing to see where the fracture is on the leg.

    Oh, this is a joke? I do hope so!

    Yes, Riley, it's an April Fool's joke. I'm laughing at myself....I do not remember playing the same joke last year. I'll have to be more creative next year.... :)

    You didn't. That was two years ago. Last year I spun the story of PETROF being taken over by ONAI, remember?
    I'm looking forward to it already!

    Hi Forum Friends and Project Participants:

    (that has a nice ring to it, eh?)

    I present to you Cash's Pieces. These is the score for all of music I wrote on this project.

    *Update*

    The book is almost up on Amazon!

    NOTE: This is kind of a load off my chest. I don't think I'm going to compose anything for a while after this... :)
