I'm sorry, guys. :' ( I probably shouldn't have posted this. It's too sad. I was going to show it to my husband, but maybe not, on second thought.

While the end is very sad, indeed, especially with the couple that wanted to give Abandoned Piano a happy home, I really enjoyed watching the curiosity factor of all the people playing the piano during the day that was left curbside.
At the end of it's long life, that piano brought joy to many people. I loved watching the people inspecting the inner workings . . . they probably never saw a piano opened up before! And the smiles of people that actually played it? Priceless. (I could tell the one guy was playing chopsticks. I bet he had a good long lost memory going on in his head.
Yes, the ending is very sad. But the rest of the video is beautiful.
Thank you for posting this, Bijou, because it truly is very near and dear to my heart. Yes, I cried, too.
Several years ago, I destroyed my own beloved piano.
I inherited my Great Aunt's piano when I was about 14 years old. Long story short (I really could write an epic about my love, adoration, trials and tribulations with this piano. Moving it many times, getting it fixed, more things wrong with it, etc.) So after 35 years with this piano, it really was akin to putting a favorite pet down when I finally tore it apart.
I loved that piano, but it was time.
I really wish that my piano had a last day or two, giving joy to people, like Abandoned Piano did before it was put to rest.
I think the video is beautiful.
P.S. I still have the face board, scroll-worked legs, other parts of the cabinet and I still have all of the keys! I'm trying to figure out what to do with the remains . . . maybe make a wall hanging (nice carvings on the faceboard) or a bench of some sort.
