    Wingy lost his right arm in a sideswipe accident between two street cars in Detroit, I believe.

    My #1 Son is notionally left-handed and has played his tuba left-handed all his musical life. Although sometimes I glance across at the "velvet cushion upon which the band sits" (the tuba section) and discover him having a little fiddle around with his music, scratching his ear, or something and find he's playing right-handed. I know in my work I must be able to work as well left or right-handed, I can use a handsaw and a hammer equally well with either hand but prefer to use my right - for me it takes regular practice, but it isn't hard. Both #1 Son and my Dad are truly ambidexterous (spl?) - I don't know about #2 Son, but then the trombone is a different beast, is it not? :dontknow:

    Is anyone else bothered by the fact that both of the two U.S. state quarters which have an image of a trumpet (Tennessee and Louisiana) have that image backwards? Take a look...
