(back) Subject: Season's greetings From: KriderSM@aol.com Date: Thu, 24 Dec 1998 11:02:28 EST     Last message on Pipechat was: > >snip....>I found several dozen pencils, hundreds of paper clips (one of >>which had got onto the pedal contacts and was causing the cipher), various >>kinds of cough drops and mints, a half-eaten sandwich, a pair of insoles >>from someone's shoes, numerous miscellaneous pieces of paper and dust >>bunnies,..............<snip>   This reminds mye of a Christmas gift I received several years ago. The hosting of the occasion rotates among family members who also established the theme for that year's gifts. Past ones have included mugs, something yellow, something liquid, etc. on this occasion the theme was "gag gifts". As we went around the room, each gag gift was appropriate to the recepient's personality. When I opened my gift, I found a pile of many days' old garbage in a plastic bag. I gagged.   These stories about stuff found under pedal boards brought back this disgusting memory.   My dream Wurlitzer always sprouts several new stops during this season: 8' Santa Clausa 16' Ho Ho Ho Bombarde Pax Humana (hauntingly beautiful, highly unified and playable from all keyboards)   Peace to all during this most blessed of all seasons, for it gives us Hope.   WurliStan
