I'll Leave the Light On For Ya!

I have promised my spouse that I would do less blogging and more talking over this weekend. It will have to suffice for folks to comment at will, as I'll leave the light on for ya - as Robert Fulghum would say, play nice, hold hands, and stick together.

Then, I was a hard core trumpet player. I practiced every day and my chops were good enough to get me to the double "c" in the upper register. I played in the symphonic band, the jazz/big band, in the pit orchestra for the various yearly
musicals, and the marching band...

You have a cool site. It's a site I might have to visit more than once. I don't know whether to go to a library or just you.
