I spent so much time moving pianos in my younger days that my natural tendency is never to use my back.

Jerry,

Life is funny. When we were younger we never complained about work and heavy breathing. It was alot more enjoyable too.

I must say that my worst experience was when I was called to do a piano in the home of a well to do family! The lady of the house had been told to contact me to tune her piano! When I got there, I opened the piano, and started to put the temperament strip in when her husband entered the room with a chair and sat down by the piano! He looked at me and then said"I want to make sure your doing it right and know what you are doing"! I looked at him, removed the strip, put it in my case, did not re-assemble the piano case and walked out! No less that an hour later, the lady called and asked what happened! I told her and she said she would call back! She did, and I did tune her piano, but, the know it all was not to be found and when I finished, she payed me and twice and told me it is from HIS checking account! Since then, I am called every six months to tune the piano, and guess who pays!!!
