Well, yes indeed, I am back from a much needed vacation. Took a whole week up to our cottages. Boated, didn't swim much, to danged cold for that but, we did have a lot of fun and laughed our fool heads off to our hearts content at the nightly bonfires.

Here's a few piano jokes for you.
-------------------

Miracle Cure

Doctor Sims has come to see one of her patients in St Mary's Hospital, Copnor, Portsmouth. Louise, the patient has had major surgery to both of her hands.

'Doctor,' says Louise excitedly and dramatically holds up her heavily bandaged hands. 'Will I be able to play the piano when these bandages come off?'

'I don't see why not,' answers Doctor Sims.

'That's strange,' says Louise. 'I wasn't able to play it before.'
----------------------
Pianist in Tune?

A pianist and singer are rehearsing 'Autumn Leaves' for a concert and the pianist says, 'OK. We will start in G minor and then on the third bar, modulate to B major and go into 5/4. When you get to the bridge, modulate back down to F# minor and alternate a 4/4 bar with a 7/4 bar. On the last A section go into double time and slowly modulate back to G minor.'

The singer answers, 'Crikey, I don't think I can remember all of that.'
The pianist replies, 'Well, that's what you did last time.'
-----------------------
Piano quotes:

* I always make sure that the lid over the keyboard is open before I start to play: Artur Schnabel, Australian pianist, when asked the secret of piano playing.
* Nothing soothes me more after a long and maddening course of pianoforte recitals than to sit and have my teeth drilled: George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright and music critic.
* When she started to play, Steinway himself came down personally and rubbed his name off the piano: Bob Hope,
* American comedian, on comedian Phyllis Diller.
* Claire de Loonie: said my band teacher, after hearing a student play Clair de Lune.
