    A month ago, I had my double hernia surgery, and the doctor forbid me to play my dear Xeno during four long weeks. I just used to get up, some nights, go and look at her sleeping ...Yesterdays, at last, I received the green light. And this morning, I spent not an hour long, but four short sessions, 15 minutes each, recovering my playing. Wham Bam, Thank You Yammie ! Can you imagine, my friends trumpeters, brothers and sisters, the amount of pleasure it was to meet her again ? :D

    Oh yes, I can imagine! I hope it wasn't trumpet playing that caused the problem in the first place!

    No, it's an old weakness of my 66 years old body... But playing "too much" the trumpet has been the last straw ! But I have no regrets, since my abs are now stronger than when I was 20, so I don't risk anything but improving my playing ! Thanks for your kind answers.

    Thanks Veery ! For information, the exact equivalent in French for "What a gas !" is "Quel pied !", i.e. "What a foot !"; don't ask me why "a foot" !?!

    Congratulations Dupac - welcome back to the wonderful world of trumpet - quel pied? - have you never smelled old sandshoes? Akin to the smell of the dunny door from a prawn trawler :-?.

    At last, it works ? One of the "Dunny Dupac" (you can google those two words). Thanks to Ted, I got a new (for me) word, "dunny"... As for "Dupac", that's my true family name !
