Grand, that is.
So, after coming to a conclusion that our interminable re-do of the backyard at the Aerie was going to cost less than we thought it would (in terms of money, not time or annoyance), we decided what to do with the left over.
Save it? No, not quite.
Invest it? Certainly not now.
No, as good Americans, we decided to help stimulate the economy by purchasing a piano. So, after several weeks of reading and looking, fortuitous timing and circumstances brought us in contact with the UCSD piano sale (a yearly event for new and used pianos). As it happened, the new piano I had my eye on (it’s the last one on the page (EGP-183C)…) was there and on significant discount. Woo hoo!
And it was delivered today! She came in weighing 800 pounds and about 72” long.
Now, I really gotta keep playing!
