Msr. Winkelmann and the Methodists

This is Laury's baby grand piano, Msr. Winkelmann. He has the honor of living in his very own room at the Chatette. I took this photo in 2009, and Laury has since re-arranged the furniture a bit, but you get the idea...he pretty much dominates the space; he's an important member of the family. When Laury read my blog post about building a life in France, she shared that one thing she chose to ship to France when she moved there was 30 pounds of sheet music for Msr. Winkelmann and her to enjoy playing. I replied...'you gonna laugh, but I thought about shipping my old Methodist hymnal so I could play hymns...on a piano that I don't even have.' I love to play hymns...they're easy, the music has great full chords,  and I know the tune and the words to most of them. She emailed me right back...'Bring the hymnal! I'd love to hear you play them on Msr. Winkelmann.' We'll see...

You may remember this beautiful baby grand from this blog post...
