What a grand time meeting PW members who were able to stop by Larry Buck’s shop after the M&H tour. I’ve attended the tour a couple of times and can understand needing to call it the end of the day after having been a part of a very lengthy and intense tour. But for those of you who were able to make the trek to Lowell, thank you for stopping by and joining the gathering. It was certainly a pleasure meeting each of you.

All the usual crowd who joined the gathering; JazzManToo, Axtremus, Lilylady, Beelady, John Citron, thank you for your assistance with food and setup. As always, each visit is a memorable one.

A huge thank you to Larry Buck for the invitation to gather at his shop and for the lovely Petrof III on display for our musical enjoyment.

As always, a very special thank you to Frank Baxter for creating our online gathering spot . With each passing year my piano friends multiply and the gatherings keep getting betterer and betterer!!

Larry, thank you so much for having my son and I over.

It was nice to finally meet Larry, TerryTunes, Axtremus, Lilylady, Beelady, JazzManToo, IrishMak, etc. (sorry, I forgot the other forum names but I remember your faces!)

I was also going to post a group photo from my camera but for some reason they came out blurred. Thanks for posting the group pic, Terry.

Thanks to everyone responsible and special thanks to Larry and Terry (does Steve do all the heavy lifting?) It's such good fun to talk about pianos, listen to folks play pianos, and learn a bunch of tech stuff from Larry. I should note how impressed I was with Larry's work on the Kranich & Bach grand. I remember him posting the before pictures, and it was a pleasure to see the results of his labor. It is a very beautiful piano and sounds great.

Thanks to Terrytunes, Stevetunes, Bee Lady, Lily Lady, and the numerous other folks who put out a very nice meal.

It was nice to hear everyone play, we are blessed with talented piano players.

Sheryl and I had a fantastic time at Larry's especially being able to meet may of the forum members in person and getting to know them better. A special thank you to all that contributed to the feast and vino. This was our first PIANO Party and everyone made us feela part of the group. It really was not that difficult to understand the New England Dialect and we had a great time meeting everyone.
