    Well -- Bob Evans is at least one step up from Micky D's ----- although this last fall I went to Bob Evans with the secretary of my band (she is 64, and me 47) -- and a trombone player and his wife saw us and came over to say HELLO. .................nobody will believe me, but after the meal, and a concert ---- my ""friend"" -- turned toward me and said. ""YOU KNOW PEOPLE are seeing us together --WE ARE NOT A COUPLE, KT you know that don't you???, and we shouldn't see each other for awhile, KT you are TOO NICE TO BE TRUE, a real gentleman, and I can't accept that at this time""

    I mean ---- Bob Evans had nothing to do with I suppose, but it still leaves a bad taste, that Bob Evans somehow exposed what a WONDERFULLY NICE PERSON I am ----- AND PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    it was JUST POOR TIMING --- that someone else saw us together at that moment in time!!!!!!

    Been working on my timing issues (which was the original theme of this thread :)). Brass band has been a big help. Also I have been playing slower pieces at the jazz club which seem to make the timing issues easier to handle. Heres one my missus recorded last monday. Strangers in the night:

    uhm - yeah, sorry about that GM brings out the BEST in me sometimes -- and other times we get EACH OTHER SIDETRACKED!!! ----- Yes, you have a very nice sound in my opinion -- very smooth and flowing which is in accordance with the song style. My community band has helped me out tremendously with timing issues (although I think they go to fast at times) ---- but the tempo changes, the different styles of songs and such help with the timing.
    Keep up the great job ---and keep getting out there in the public to keep playing the trumpet --- I think people need to hear that sound!!!!
