'Willis' as I call my late mother's piano, was manufactured with beautifully grained and lustrous elephant ivory key tops. After almost a century, about half of the white keys have cracked or chipped. Since I do have time on my hands until Spring, I decided to treat the sweet-sounding old friend to cosmetic dentistry with a set of simulated ivory key tops.
I shudder to think of all the poor elephants that have been murdered for their tusks. Between poaching and habitat loss, those majestic animals have had a sad history.
|Half of my piano's ivory keys have become brittle and cracked with age.|
|These plastic replicas will brighten the smile of faithful old Willis.|
|Rabbit tracks form a heart shaped pattern in the snow.|
|Are you the clever snow artist little bunny?|
