    Louis always brings a smile to me ..... I wonder if he's not the most loved musician we've ever had? My father (85) isn't really into jazz or trumpets, but he has such a strong feeling for Louis that he tells a story (over and over ....:roll:) about passing Louis Armstrong and his wife on the street in Seattle ..... many years ago. He had wanted to exclaim: "Satchmo!" but was too shy. He laments that even to this day .... He sometimes asks me what I think Louis' reaction would have been.:lol:

    I always tell him that no dobut Louis would have flashed him that brilliant smile.

    Thanks Peter, what a great way to start a Monday morning.:-)
