49 USES FOR A FLUTAPHONE NUMBERS 1-5

Ok, Janice, I couldn’t come up with 49 genealogy
related uses for a flutaphone.


But there’s one here and more to come among the others.

1. Doorstop- It’s more humane than using dead cats
or dead Wesley Crushers. And it smells better.


2. Windchimes


3. A Habitat trail for Earthworms-All those finger holes.
“The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out…”


4. Tank decoration for guppies- All those finger holes.
“ The fish swim in, the fish swim out…”


5. A defensive weapon-For when that librarian finally snaps
when you ask her to find another dusty volume in the stacks.
Mouthpieces on flutaphones are pointy!!!


To be continued.

6. A diversion: used to exit an overly proprietary historical society. Make some noise behind the bookshelf with it, and while the volunteer is investigating the noise, grab your first born child (the one being held hostage to make sure you don't steal anything) and run like hell.

7. Learn a snake charmers tune and play it when you need to hypnotize a records clerk to get them to check the books one more time for that record you KNOW is there.

8. A pry-bar, to break into old file drawers that have been holding your genealogical notes from 20 years ago. You've moved a few times, and lost the key.
