We were recently the lucky recipients of an ORGAN, a healthy wooden musical giant organ.
Our neighbors said they wasn't usin' it none (they really don't talk like that I was just thinking of that scene in "Oh Brother" when he sold his soul to the devil.) Like the guitar guy, they were happy to get rid of it.
Anyway, yeah, it's in the garage until it can have a special place in the basement which should be finished sometime this year. Like maybe before family comes for Thanksgiving.
What are we going to do with it?
Take lessons from somebody...? I've always wanted to be the ward organist. Maybe our girls will want to give it a try. We had an organ in the living room when I was growing up. My mom taught organ lessons on it. Guess she's the somebody that will have to come down and teach us! Could you blame me for not passing up a free musical instrument?
Just when we thought our summer couldn't get more exciting......we planned a camping trip...on the BEACH! (Desperation is a great teacher) If I had not been going through 3 years of beach withdrawals I might never have found out that you can camp there for as little as $25 a night! We don't own any camping gear, unless you count princess sleeping bags and our van. But, I have never been more excited to get some! Afterall, this will be a lifetime investment. If waking up on the beach and going to sleep on the beach and spending all day on the beach is that easy I'm going to want to do it often. So, our trip is planned for mid-September and I am feeling like I have a great life. We can work on the yard, finish our basement, and still afford a beach vacation!
Camping rocks!...organs are cool too.
