I just read the terrible news about our friend Jerry Groot. frown He was one of my best friends on this forum, and I'll miss him a lot. Let us make sure that this thread lives as long as PW in honor of Jerry.

Jerry and I emailed privately for years before finally meeting in person. We laughed at all the crazyness in this business and on these forums. We compared notes, and traded ideas. Why is it the best people are always taken from us way too early? Rest in Peace, Jerry. I'll miss you - another vote to keep the thread going...

I say let's keep this thread active...it's been popular for years now!

Here's a thoughtful little 'dance' for you...

The Secret Life of Pianos was posted to the PTG CAUT forum a few days back....

Enjoy!

'Sorry. I probably won't be posting in this thread. Jerry was the attraction. None of the rest of us are the bigger than life figure that he was.

For me. Jerry and this topic will rest in peace. It was fun.

Diane,

First and foremost, it's good to see you posting here again - you were the Harriet to Jer's Ozzie and I, for one, am heartened by your return.

This is one of the threads I look for every day, even though I don't post 'cuz, basically, I'm not as good as you guys. So, NO, don't call this a wrap, please, please, please. Be honest - you know Jerry wouldn't want you to. (And neither do I.)

Okay, so let's try to get this thing up & swinging again! grin

Perfect entry on the dive. Clean Jackknife. No splash at all. I give it a 9.5 - A little bit of over-rotation on the tail.

The Tahitian judge gave it a 7.5 - He's never seen white water.

Thanks Diane!

I'm planning an evening of friends, food, and piano.

The 'cake' would be a great addition.
