I Have One Word for You: "Plastic"

The  dedication for my half of our new book is to my wife, Barbara Bedway, who has shared nearly every step of my journey-with-Beethoven the past few years.  Not only that, she gave me this amazing Beethoven Action Figure.  Comes with a piano stool and you can even raise his arms to portray him yelling at Ries or Schindler or some musician or aristocrat (or fate knocking at the door).  It may appear thathe is wearing a cod piece, perhaps in honor of A Clockwork Orange but, alas, it is just a hinge.

I've donated a second plastic Ludwig to a well-known pianist.  And now my wife has also given me a Beethoven finger puppet....
