Another of my fond memories of Pieter playing his organ...
As an amateur, without a single lesson ever!
Day after surgery, looking bruised and blue... You can still see where they went inside for doing the topical surgery.
No anesthesia... just an injection and it did not prevent him from feeling the pain.
Yes, his ring has been cut... when he needed open heart surgery they tried to remove it and started cutting it! No success and now it is damaged but still cannot be taken off.
For several hours each day, Pieter had to wear this splint.
It worked out well and his finger moved again!
So... the organ downstairs got visited again.
Pieter had somehow lost the music of THEME 7th symphony 2nd movement by Ludwig van Beethoven but I found it on line for him and he is happy again.
Our old, Dutch organ, is no longer in the home... it died after over 30 years of activity.
Pieter did once perform some brain surgery on it, by soldering tiny wires on its back board, with the actual builder on the phone. He lived in Florida at that time, during his retirement.
And it worked; Pieter always has been quite a handyman and tackled almost everything himself.
