No excuse as far as I am concerned. (Good thing I don't make the rules.). JoBert and Gombessa would have taken it apart, fixed the pedal, regulated it, and had it in tune in no time! Have a good trip! Let's do lunch when you get back.

Haha, sounds good. I enjoyed that restaurant. It was beautiful here yesterday in PA. Now we have 6 inches of snow this morning.

Hello, I was gone from March 31-April 7th and was nowhere near a piano. Capuchin monkeys--yes. Piano bird? Yes. But piano? No : )

pianosuzemn - I will add March 31-April 7 to yours. Piano bird??? You sent me to Google to find out what that was. All I found was the Doors song, Piano Bird!

Hello. Leaving today until Tuesday night for a short holiday, but please excuse me only for tomorrow: I will still be practising today (hands already on the keyboard) and on the returning day. Speaking about commitment...LOL

Can I be excused for yesterday? I strained my wrist working outside. Hopefully it'll feel better by the time I get home today so I can be back at the keys this evening.

Piano bird is a certain type of Anhinga in Costa Rica which, when it opens its wings, looks like a piano! Here’s a link that shows it

I will need a couple of days reprieve next week as I get my left hip replaced on Monday. I have some easy technical exercises to do for when I don’t feel up to much practicing. I hope only to miss the days i’m In the hospital.

Ooh dynamobt! That sounds major! Best wishes for a quick recovery! Let me know what days to put on your excused list after your surgery.

Well, it IS pretty major! But it doesn’t affect my upper body. So, in theory, I should be able to sit at the piano and do something!

Good luck dynamobt!
I know it's your lower body, but it is major surgery. Rest up all you need and don't rush back too soon.

And I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that it is SO important to be diligent about doing the PT exercises they will give you to do. Even more important than your piano practice, and that's saying a lot smile smile

Hello,
Please excuse me for 21 March to 11 April. I went on a cruise where I heard a lot of good music, but didn't play a note. (BTW, I like that cruise ships are sticking with live bands rather than the "karaoke" approach).
Thanks.

Patrick.

May I be excused for April 10? I had to work until really late, so I had to go directly to the theatre show I booked last September and arrived late (and much tired) at home.
For pure luck I had already put the ticket in my backpack!
