5 Dollars

My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

Ever made a $88,000 mistake?

Fundraisers for the Two Moors Festival saved for two years to raise the cash needed to buy the Bosendorfer piano - considered to be the Rolls-Royce of the piano world.

The festival’s artistic director Penny Adie was so excited about the delivery of the expensive instrument that she went out to photograph the arrival. Unfortunately, the pictures didn't turn out quite the way she hoped.

Movers drop $88,000 Bosendorfer piano.
(Please tell me these guys were movers and not stagehands.)

And to top it all off, the festival had only insured the piano for approximately $50,000. After all, who thinks someone is gonna drop their grand piano? The instrument may end up a write off for the festival.
