Oingo Boingo

#1 has a Yamaha acoustic guitar.
He and Mr. were changing the strings the other day and all of a sudden, one of the guitar pins let go and the string went, "Boing!"
When the string went boing, the pin went up...
We all know that "what goes up -- must come down..." Yes, that's a lyric...
FYI: Newton was wrong.
The pin did NOT come down.
It did not land anywhere.
The boys are convinced that it went into a black hole.  A black hole in my family room??  I dust, honest! I clean - really... I do!!
But, I have to say that I think they are correct.
I have moved furniture.
I have swept.
I have shone my flashlight into every crevice and corner of the lower level of this house looking for the pin. I even looked under the stove and the refrigerator.
It is nowhere to be found.
When your guitar strings go boing... just call Yamaha and tell them about the black hole in your family room. They will take pity on you and send you 3 new ones -- free of charge!
Thanks Yamaha!!

very sweet of Yamaha. when something cant be found down...look up!

we had a gal at Church fall off a ladder and loose her shoe, we were looking everywhere for it when it was finally found on top of a wall mounted speaker! We had a good laugh.
