Digital baby grand piano for sale

It's a Kohler. 88 keys. Black finish. Electronics by Korg. Full complement of instruments and effects. MIDI interface. Sounds wonderful. Ten years old, pristine condition. Bought it new when we moved into this house, mostly for the look.

I'm moving to California soon and will have no room for it.

Make a reasonable offer. Email me.

A Stellar Walnut Creek Weekend

Friday night we attended a retirement dinner cruise for one of the founders of Cheryl's company, ITSI Gilbane, Dev Shukla. Amazing.

Then, yesterday (June 1st), we went to the Walnut Creek Arts and Wine Festival. My friend Rick Stevens was appearing with Lydia Pense and Cold Blood. The temp reached a reported 100F. EMTs were busy hauling off the fallen.

I drank more beer than I've had in a couple years. :)

Random photo essay follows.

The backstory


Walnut Creek Arts and Wine Festival. We walked down and back from/to Cheryl's place just up the other side of Muir Hospital.

The Ace of Spades and The Ace of Clubs from the 60's North Beach "Four of a Kind"

Lydia Pense

It was a Dawg Day.

A real photographer, Doug Trost. Size matters. He was sportin'' a Sony Alpha 77 with an f2.5 tele lense, grrrr.r...

Dr, Rock! 

Chris Snyder of Finding Stella

Interesting, a back "live view" panel "boot." She was shooting with a hoss of a Canon. Didn't get her name.



I have a lot more shots. I'll get around to posting them. Oh, here's one. The most interesting woman onstage.

I just "retired" to move back over to the Bay Area and be with my sweetie. Wrote my "retirement manifesto song" a week ago. It just fell out of my head (click image to enlarge).
