Notes on Music and Breakfast

The one in the foreground is the replaced version; the new one is behind it.

Rather deserted-looking today, but active enough for buying the various munchies.

I like going to flea market more than a store
Brekkie noshables I will buy there more and more,
With bananas and honey and raisins and bix
All to go in with yoghurt in a perfect mix;
And though half the usual number rocked up to sell,
Due to inclement weather, those doing so, did well;
But best deal of the day was a second-hand store
Where I purchased a keyboard that simply plays more
Octaves than the one that I already have got,
And won’t distort some intervals quite such a lot;
I tested it; found that some notes tended to stick,
So got big reduction, now will try a fix-trick,
For it has for sure and certain quite made my day,
To get myself something with, and at, I can play.

    Nothing like the flea markets in South Africa.
    Enjoy your new keyboard.
