    I suppose it wasn't "said" but I once received a superbly aimed boot after playing "Reville" at Scout camp!

    That made my day, thanks!

    BTW, I take it "had the wobbly boot on" means she had too much to drink?

    A player, after an Amazing Grace cornet solo following a memorial service, to a woman in tears, "Was it really THAT bad?"

    I picked up on it. Funny! I watch a lot of Aussie rules football ( man it's BRUTAL!!). I've picked up a bit of the slang listening to the announcers.:-)

    Once after playing TAPS for a funeral, I had someone ask what kind of batteries my horn used. Not really understanding the question I replied with, "I had a cheeseburger for lunch." Later on I found out that many military funerals use some sort of battery operated trumpet to play TAPS. The player just holds it like they are playing and the tune is played. Amazing!

    At church rehearsal one day I brought an old 1915 American Standard I own just to play.(Looks like storm debris but sounds like wow) One of the kids ask about it and I told them what it was and when it was made. Never saw it coming but the next words out of their mouth was, "Did you buy it new?"
