Musical improvisation

A repair tip. Yesterday the shoulder straps on my old piano accordion finally gave up the ghost. I needed the accordion for a music session in the evening, my bayan straps were too wide, and getting compatible accordion straps at short notice in Exeter was ... unlikely.  But I had a brainwave while shopping: the near-perfect emergency replacement - functional and decorative - turned out to be a pair of nylon webbing dog-leads from the pet section of Wilkinsons (the Woolworths clone that replaced the Exeter Woolworths store).
