A Musical Send-off

In the baggage claim area of the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport (MSP) there sits an (out of tune) piano, literally begging someone to sit down and play it.

When my mom and sister took me to the airport on Monday for my flight to China, my mom announced that she wanted to sit down and play “The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music.”

She did, much to the delight and amusement of passers-by.

I suggested that we just drop her off sometime so she could spend a whole day playing, something I think she would consider it if the piano weren’t so out of tune.

So if you’re traveling through MSP, be sure to check out the piano to see if Gracie is sitting there playing it.
