Yes, I do have an Accordion.
And No I do not play it.
It ways about 2 trillion tonnes and there are approximately 4 million ladybug sized buttons on the side that you are supposed to memorize and be able to play them without looking at them.
that's right, ladybug sized.

not happening.

Anyway My Grampa bought it for me about a year ago, and he drove through the mountains in B.C during a blizzard to pick it up in Vancouver.
It is a very cool accordion though, and every once in awhile I take it out and play with it, pick out a few tunes and then put it back.
this time I decided to take some pictures and show all you guys.
here they are.

It's gotta be good if it has a name like Camillo.
well that's and accordion for you.

Ohhh! You've been holding out on us! What a beautiful accordian. I really think you should learn to play it. Can I try it next time I show up at Wild Blue Yonder Studio?

I guess if you really really want to.

That is a beautiful looking instrument! Surely you, the talented musician you are, can figure out how to hit those ladybug sized buttons to make a song!? c'mon, Josh, you can do it! A new challenge for the year.

Josh, thats the most beautiful, awesome looksing acordian I've ever seen! WHat a treasure, especially if you could figure out half of the buttons:) Look forward to hearing it some day, because now that you've reveiled it... we want to see it in action!

haha, yeah right...
it IS a really beautiful instrument, but when the straps are tightened up I cant see over it, and when the straps are loosened it slides off.

so I like to pull it out every once in awhile but I cant play it :(
