Things that I would like to have, in increasing order of impossibility:
1. a book press
2. a pool table*
3. a board shear
4. a Dance Dance Revolution arcade game
5. a Steinway grand piano*
6. an electric organ (with an AGO-standard pedalboard – a Hammond’s not gonna cut it)
7. a helicopter(*)
8. a pipe organ*
9. a 6-color offset printing press
*Things that are actually owned by someone I know.
(*) I don’t actually know anyone who owns a helicopter, but my old bishop had part ownership of a Cessna.
The lady with the pipe organ lives in my parents’ ward. Her husband built her the pipe organ, then built her a house to go around it. It’s a lopsided A-frame, built to accommodate the largest rank. You can see the biggest pipes near the ceiling, through their front window.
Unfortunately, the lady with the pipe organ is also sort of insane. She doesn’t believe in doing scales or other technique drills, and she thinks that Bach is evil. So I stick to practicing on the electric organ in the chapel, where at least no one will yell at me for playing “Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme.”
