Hi Diane,
I would find it hard to play on a piano whose keys were only C-C#-D, C-C#-D, C-C#-D ...
Or maybe it's F-F#-G ... Or even G-G#-A
It's sort of like the Rap Piano in the Piano Forum.
Tee-Hee-Hee

IS THIS more to your liking . . . Marty!
The SHOES I'm talking about . . . grin

I'm at the cottages. The weather up here is cooler. Cloudy tonight. It's been so hot up here that the water level is down. Consequently, I can barely get my boat out of my hoist! Whoa is me!

Have fun working!!! MUHAHAHA!

Nope - But being stoned is! Eucalyptus leaves are mildly hallucinogenic and that is all they eat! The cute little critters are certainly koalafied to be very, very happy. They just never know where they are.

A COWBOY TOMBSTONE

Here is the headstone of Russell J. Larsen in the Logan City Cemetery, Logan, Utah... I wonder if he died knowing that he had won the 'Coolest Headstone' contest?
Here are his five rules for a happy life as he indicated on his headstone:

FIVE RULES FOR MEN TO FOLLOW FOR A HAPPY LIFE:

1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job.
2. It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh.
3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn't lie to you.
4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you.
5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other or you could end up dead like me.


I don't care too much for money. For money can't buy me love.

There once was a man from Peru,
who had a lot of growing up to do,
He'd ring a doorbell and run like heck,
Until the owner shot him with a .22


A bather whos clothing was strewd,
By winds that left her quite nude,
Saw a man came along,
And unless I am quite wrong,
You expected this line to be lewd!

There once was a man from Nantucket,
who kept all his cash in a bucket,
But his daughter named Nan,
Ran away with a man,
But as for the bucket, Nan, Tucket.

Probably the owner though his property was in danger

Yes a few bullets in the head may be a good educational method, yet to be tested here but we come to that slowly.
