Last week end....a few of my old trumpet buds and I got together at The Tides Tavern here in Gig Harbor for a few brewski's after a jam session at a friends in Tacoma. I stopped at Targetgetto store to pick up some crap. and when I returned to the old Pick-up with bag of goodies---!!!!! My trumpet case was no longer sitting on the passenger side floor!!! (WHY? I FORGOT TO LOCK THE PASSENGER SIDE DOOR!!!) I still haven't told Jerry Callet or my CEO-CFO-Misseeemassa that my beloved old Callet Jazz#4569? is missing.We both know that I have too many trumpets for an old retired trumpet Geek anyway? Guess it's time to comb the local pawn shops again, just like a few years ago when I lost my beloved old Besson Cornet, the same diggity-darn way? LESSONS TO BE LEARNED or continue to GET BURNED? Hey...I still have my old Selmer and my beautiful old Callet Symphonique C horn. At least I didn't get mugged or shot and I still have a couple of back up horns. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME...SUCKA!!!! 68 years old and still dumb-n'dumber.
