Managed to slice my right hand up pretty good at lunch.  Trip to the ER and 5 stitches.
 

Sorry to hear that.  Best wishes for a quick recovery. 

Good thing you're left handed.

I found a new way to waste time on FB that doesn't cause me to despair for the future.

I joined a local "garage sale" page.  People list the junk/stuff they're trying to unload.

It's hilarious.  The stuff they sell (today there was a 91 car, transmission makes noises like they all do, fan and heater don't work, interior "needs tlc," $2500, NO LOWBALL OFFERS - I KNOW WHAT I HAVE. 

Okay, it's a bit optimistic - but it's well intended and not mean spirited.

If I read comments to an article anywhere else, I'm appalled by the lack of compassion and reasoning demonstrated.

Today is a very sad day because we had to have dear old Maggie put down. I just can't imagine life without her because she was such a special loving dog for 15 years and my best mate.


Grah, I'm so sorry. I know the feeling very well. :( Some dogs are so much more special than others (I don't know why) and it hurts much more when we have to say goodbye. I still miss my best boy Kenny, who was a person rather than a dog.

So nice to hear from you Christine.

Thank you for those thoughts. I remember that you said something similar when dear Elle passed some 15 years back. Now both of their ashes are sitting in a special glass cabinet in the hall. I have to say that I am still very emotional about Maggie and everything seems to remind me of her; especially all of the people who knew us and keep asking me, "Where is Maggie?". I know men are not supposed to cry but the tears keep welling up in my eyes.

I hear ya, Grah. We had a really tough year last year. We lost 3, 2 who were the "Cat/ Dog of a lifetime" and a third who adopted us after fleeing an abusive home. all three died in our arms. It is so hard. But, the two dogs we have left are young, 4 and 5, and are just amazingly happy beings, and our 2 remaing cats are, well, cats. Cats with special souls and individual "cat"sonalities? And, this last week we added Milo to the pack. HE is a very beautiful black lab puppy (to refill our black, yellow, brown roster) who is the offspring of show champions. Do your mourning, then find a new companion. It is the way of things.

I hope this will post.......

The difficulty of having Horn Acquisition Syndrome... I spent all day today trying to figure out whether I want to get my hands on another euphonium (since my 1922 Conn will have a new home in a few days) or I want to dabble into the soprano range with a flugelhorn or a soprano trombone... I can't decide! Bear in mind, this is after biting the bullet on an Olds Super this morning...

I do not have Horn Acquisition Syndrome, but would not want to be without a Euphonium.  I do not play it very often, but sometimes I want or need valves.

Hello Bunker! I have been away many moons, but it is nice to see many of you are still here keeping the tradition of trombone camaraderie alive. I am especially glad to see spell check. Old news I am sure, but welcome to this trombonist who cannot spell camaraderie, but knows the meaning and pronunciation. I guess the great embrasure spelling debate of 2002 has been decided.

For those interested, I am playing my old Bach 6 in as many bands as I can.  Currently I am with one nascent and four gigging bands.

Cheers to all my brothers and sisters in the Fellowship of the Slide!

What sort of stuff does this nascent band play?

We are working up theme music from Japanese monster movies and Sci-Fi shows.

Maggie is still missed but we have taken the cure recommended by most of our friends. Spent the whole afternoon at the RSPCA and came home with a 5 month and two week old Siberian Husky called Chase. He is absolutely right at home and sleeping under my legs right now as I sit at the computer. So unbelievably cute with long pointed ears.

My L.A. Olds Super arrived this morning. I am already in love with it- it's so easy to play high, so comfortable to hold, the slide feels like I'm moving a coffee stirrer through open air... at least in positions 2-7. There's a tiny, singular, almost unnoticeable ding in the bottom of the lower outer that makes 1st position completely unusable :cry: Was it mentioned in the listing that the slide needed work? Nope!  >:(

Is it reparable?
