Pianos, Harps, and Election Day

This last month, October, I officially made more by tuning pianos than I did working part-time as a custodian.  That's a good milestone for my business.
Today, November first, I tuned a piano for some folks, and when I was done I tuned a Celtic harp they had recently inherited, as the tuning pins were the same as on a piano.  I'd never played a harp before, let alone tuned one.  I guess I can put that on my resume.
Tomorrow is election day.  Everyone is making predictions, so here's mine:
Republicans will pick up 70 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, and 10 in the Senate.
I think there is a greater chance that I have underestimated than overestimated.  We'll find out tomorrow.

Here's hoping you've underestimated!

Some friends have a harp that they need to be tuned. Every time they try to tune it they break a string. I wasn't bold enough to try to tune it. And now I'm across the world from them for who knows how long.

I'm with Mary, hoping you've underestimated as well!

Congratulations. Our piano could use those skills.

Well, now that the elections are over I'm not going to complain about a 'mere' 60 seats. Some states are still unannounced, too, so we could pull the number up to 64. Either way, I'm happy!
