Hi All,

I just notice that I joined PW on this date 3 years ago. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun. grin

I must say that I’ve really enjoyed reading and participating in the PW forums. Not that I have had much to contribute but I have learned a great deal about pianos and feel like I have made a few cyber friends along the way (and perhaps a few foe as well; but I’ve learned we can’t please all the people all the time grin).

Plus, I’ve actually learned how to play a piano just a little during this time; but I’m still at the beginning of the learning curve. (I’ve actually learned how to tune and regulate my own pianos but don’t tell anyone on the technician’s forum; they don’t like that idea grin.)

Wishing everyone all the best!

Ricky

Hey Rickster, I hope that after three years I'll be playing with the same skill and musicality that you display on your youtube videos. They are a hoot to watch.

Thanks for the kind words, Gary.

I figure that since I have made a fool of myself in front of the whole world with those YouTube videos, I might as well sit back and enjoy them myself grin.

I hope no one from my Church sees the “Whole lot a shaken” video; they will think I’m backslidden (just kidding). grin

Also, it looks like we are the same age. I guess between our age and our interest in pianos we have a lot in common. grin

Take care,

Rick

Hey Rick

Happy anniversary my friend. smile

Your threads and posts are always informative and very enjoyable to read.
Love your piano playing very much too, keep up the good work, and as Gary Schenk said, post more of your neat piano stylings.
Interesting too, your ability to teach yourself how to tune pianos.
I can't even Tuna fish.

Best wishes to you and your family. smile

Cordially,

Brother Bear

Thanks, Bear1!

I too always enjoy reading your highly informed and educated posts; and, I learn from you and others by leaps and bounds. (What can I say… I’m a fast learner grin.)

By-the-way, learning to tune a piano is a lot harder than learning to tuna fish. grin

Take care,

Rick

Hello and happy anniversary, Rickster,

Hmm... How did you survive 3 years of this forum?

(I do not think I can... =) )

I enjoyed seeing your videos, too. smile

Rickster... I've always enjoyed reading and listening to your contributions.

Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary! yippie

I sort of recall back in the (g)olden days of the PW coffee room, that when you celebrated an anniversary you'd recover your first initial post or intro.. just for a touch of nostalgia.

Hmmm...

That could be somewhat embarrassing, right? smile

Happy anniversary Rickster.
