Embarrassing Piano Story
By Sam Harris

Just last Friday I had a friend help me move one of my four players
from a rental storage facility to my new workshop.  Everything was
going well and we had little trouble getting the piano to the workshop,
but once inside we had a problem.

We were using a piano/furniture dolly, but we had a little trouble
tilting the piano and getting the dolly out at the same time.  I had
not allowed enough room to work and we lost the piano and it fell to
it's back bruising both my legs and crushing the pneumatic boards of an
AutoPiano tracking device which happened to be in the same floor space.

Lessons learned:

1.  Never get in a hurry.
2.  Allow plenty of space to maneuver
4.  The floor is not the best place to store player parts.
3.  In piano moving 3 is _NOT_ a crowd.  :-)

Embarrassed in North Carolina,

Sam Harris
