Pianola Drawing by a 4-year-old
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Thought many of you would enjoy seeing the enclosed picture,
drawn by the 4-year-old daughter of a local customer.

I had just started testing the player unit when the young girl ran into
her bedroom.  I thought she might have been frightened by the 'ghost'
playing the piano.  Five minutes later, she returned and handled me the
picture.  What caught my attention was:

1) There's nobody sitting at the piano and yet music is coming
   out of it.
2) The sun is included in the picture even though it was a
   cloudy day.  To me, that indicates a true sense of happiness.
3) Not knowing my first name (parents call me Mr. Tuttle), the
   child marked it 'To You'.  That's so cute!

When I was given the picture, I got kind of choked up.  By far, it's
the cutest, sweetest thing any child (outside my own family) has ever
made for me.  It will hang in my office for many years to come.  Might
even frame it!

Blessings come in many forms,

John A. Tuttle
