FS Free: Reproducing Pianos & Miscellany
By Gordon Stelter

Dear Everyone,  Thanks to all who responded to my request to re-send

their emails regarding the items I listed that you're interested in.

This time, I was able (by a delicate, feathery touch upon the iPad's

screen) to get them all sequestered in "Notes", before they skidded

off into "perdition" (trash) or worse. (Permanent deletion.)

Apple, apparently noticing me gloat over this small victory, then

asked if I'd like to put them on iCloud.  "Why not," passed through

my mind in a flash of hubris, so I clicked whereupon all completely

vanished, along with the "Notes" category itself, which no longer

inhabits the screen.  So now, embarrassedly, I must ask you all to

please re-send your inquiries a third and final time (all will be

immediately transferred to clay tablets, or yellow note pads) and

I will appropriately respond.

And while I hate to deprive some "Millennial" at the Apple store of

the chance to smirkingly sneer at me in condescending derision, as

I beg him for an answer to the mystery of what happened to your prior

emails, it is a 20-mile round trip there and back, so, if any of you

know a congenial 5-year-old who'd be happy to share his expertise on

this matter, please have him or her help me.  It will be appreciated

and will help alleviate global warming by precluding the necessity of

driving to the Apple store in my aged van.
