Play It Again Baines

For the last 30+ years, my friends the Woods,  have opened their home, put some rolls on their player piano and gathered us together before Christmas. We've seen our teens grow up, get married and have their own kids and now the group gets more lively as each year passes. The player piano, manned by Johnny, is always a hit with the little ones. This year Baines was the newest addition, and he loved plunking the keys as we all joined in for a few carols.

Baines must be trying to sort out how that piano makes those sounds.

So, I suppose if you tickle the keys of a player piano as the roll goes through you create additional sounds. When Madeleine comes over Carolyn has her sit at the piano on her lap, playing the piano with her feet.
