    I knew this was a bad idea, I missed the MF horns, add 2. and the Chris Kratt another 1......
    But seriously, really really seriously, honestly, it is the end. There is just the Olds Recording I need to complete the journey; so one more will be the end.....
    Honestly....

    I have 12.
    I won't win the prize for the most horns but, I might win for the most money invested in those trumpets.

    Uh Huhhh... Here we have a classic indication of the dreaded 'N+1' Virus. Quick! Call in the intervention team before it's too late...

    Oh, I guess it's already too late. Besides the team is out buying some more trumpets. Oh well...

    JDay, I think you may be taking RAK's post a bit too personally. Remember, he is a kid so you can't read too much into his words. Besides he does let others play his instruments. That is the main point. I doubt that many of the rest of us do that (unless we are standing right there with one hand held close to the horn in case of a drop).

    I was up to 11 but I sold one last year. I suppose it's a lot for my age. If I keep it up at this rate I might beat oldlou one day!

    If you REALLY want to know, ask your wife. She can give you exact numbers and location ( garage, closet, office "all over the house" etc), even help you calibrate the figures, point out how to shrink the size etc. Never underestimate the willingness of "the little woman" to help in these situations. Expect a different view on things like necessity, multiples of certain models,the need for an extra 20 cases, little things like that, but still, an eye opener......:-?
