    At least mine understands that such is mostly due to my health, physical & mental (the latter a lot just boredom).

    That gives me the shivers for 2 reasons. 1- It's an awesome horn 2- One bump away from a major repair!

    The problem with quotes on the internet is you can never be certain they're authentic. ~ Abraham Lincoln I read that in his blog!! Great quote!

    My wife tolerates my horn laying around better than she tolerates me playing it.......

    I dislike mutes for practicing

    I have a couple old bugles standing on a bookshelf in the den. My "real" horns don't need to be displayed, and are much more safe and resistant to tarnish when kept in their cases.

    It is actually leaning more than it appears and is sitting on a non slip mat type thingy. I've also warned everyone in the house to tread lightly so I'm comforable with it for now. My biggest worry is whether to spend the money to get that old Pan Am worked on or put it up there instead.
