I keep my Giordy and my parts quite separate, thank you.

Methinks that's a chimpanzee. They don't like being called a monkey, but then, who does ?

Actually it's a Capuchin monkey. And they probably don't like being called a chimpanzee....   >:(

I'm a Yorkie!
My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

I was tempted, with a form of translation of Organ-ette, to start a thread about Collis-Bird's small organ. However, since it is open to misunderstanding, I decided not to.
Someone may have thought I meant a church organ.

I have been tempted several times to replace my Koch but my wife has said I'm not allowed to. Domestic harmony must be maintained.
