What's in your wallet piano?

We had the piano tuned yesterday morning for the first time in oh, 3 years maybe? It really needed it, plus D# was making a funny clanking noise. So I let Mr. Piano Tuner into the house, there's a little bit of small talk and then he gets to work. About 15 minutes later he comes around the corner with a handful of:

16 marbles, the pull-string and handle from a top, and a dart from the Nerf gun. I wondered where that big green marble had gotten to! We used to keep the Quadrilla Marble set that Santa brought for William in the room with the piano, and it came with 50 marbles, maybe more. (Best toy EVER, that one! He played with it for 3 months straight every day.) Anyway - there you have it. My piano is now toy free, clank free, and in tune. If only I had time for lessons :-)

  1. Thanks for the tip about the marbles - always like good toy tips. I had to think for a second about what D# meant it's been so long since I thought about music in that way. Love the booty the piano tuner collected from inside the piano. We find mega blocks everywhere these days!

  10. That's funny! We have found many toys and other odds and ends in the most bizarre places!!! Hmm, maybe I'll dedicate a whole post to that topic. Life with children always brings the unexpected, doesn't it?
