Funny Daryl!

So I'm guessing that the PTG convention is where piano tuners/technicians get together & check UNDER the piano, and

or check . . . IN the piano for DOUBLE timings or
something like that!

And hey Daryl, if they serve "DONUTS" at this convention, I might just show up!
Wouldn't Jerry be surprised! White & black, they's just think I was a PIANO! grin

And one "donut" can be as many calories as one HAMBURGER!
Always wondered why they call HAMBURGERS HAMBURGERS when
there is abolutely NO HAM in it!

Funny Daryl! lol
Seriously though, by the donut's would be the only place I would be allowed! GUARANTEED the PGTxyz conferencers would NOT let me NEAR the piano! Leave fixing the piano to the PROFESSIONALS!!!
The technicians/tuner would have a sign up for me . . . something like this! grin
