#111: My piano is coming!!

My mom today told me that he movers are coming to pick up the piano that my grandmother gave me on Friday.  It will be delivered some amount of time after that, so before I go to Ireland I should have it here in Boise!!

This piano was in my grandparent's house for my whole life; both my mom and my aunt learned to play on it.

The best part of having it in my house, though, is that it belonged to Nana, who was my best friend.  She died in 2005 right after I moved to Boise.  She and Poppee loved to hear me play the piano.  Poppee lost his eyesight the last few years of his life (he died in 1993) and he would sit in the living room whole I played of one of the 5 or so tunes I had learned from lessons.
