“Cow Tjader,” (Dimensions to come)

Sometimes, the less I alter or enhance an object, the better. This wonderful xylophone was salvaged from Larchmont Elementary School in Norfolk by none other than Alvin Jones, the Beneficent Buddha of Booty over at Country Boy Antiques.

I would venture to his emporium of wonders whenever I was sad or in need of a spiritual pick-me-up. He let me have it for only $10.

I can’t part with it because our two daughters attended the beloved school and may have played this during a holiday recital. Also, it reminds me of Alvin and his generous spirit.

Here’s a video of Cow in action. Turn up the volume: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bab8OdVBnoY/?taken-by=hundleysam
