Nobody wants to see that.

I store sleeping bags under the piano, as acoustic dampers. Otherwise, my eardrums meet in the middle of my head when I practice. I had a sleeping bag to replace under there today, and found this:

Any pianist worth their fingernails should be alarmed when suddenly confronted with a large cabinet bolt lying under the harp.

A brief search revealed where it had come from:

Worse and worse! This means that over 700 pounds of metal and wood under a whole lotta pressure has been sitting on a peg leg and not bolted in. The other bolt was in, but not tight.

Fortunately, I had a socket wrench, and disaster was averted.

Much better.

I’m checking all the legs now!

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
