Dwayne, a business associate and friend in Napa, dropped by The Inn On First, a lovely Napa Bed and Breakfast Inn, and told us that a friend of his was a property manager and that the renters of one property skipped out of town without paying rent and they left a baby grand piano in the garage. All he wanted was the cost of one month’s rent and it had to be gone in 3 days.
Jamie ran over and saw, fell in love, and called a piano mover who could come the next day, and then a piano tuner who could come the day after that. 3 days later we had a lovely piano in the house and Jamie began to pull out some of his old sheet music from the attic. He hasn’t had a piano around since he was a young adult, but his fingers are itching to get back into it. He played periodically throughout the years, but nothing serious.
So, how lucky am I that he wants to practice and I love the sound of live music in the house. Looking forward to sharing this gift with friends, family, and guests who love to play as much as I like to listen!
