    Where'd your "love" for KT go? KT isn't an enemy ... it's just a friendly game.

    Geez, I'm now much cleaner now that I've now a much more modern tub-shower than the old galvanized tub that I had to fill with water drawn from the well in buckets via rope and pulley and then was heated on the kitchen stove, but my memory of such is still vivid. Stay out of the kitchen while baths are taken. The bigger problem was emptying that tub and cleaning it for the next person to use. Leastwise they had to draw and heat their own water.

    Now let me practice my trumpet before the supper bell rings. At least my wife doesn't blow the conch as my Grandmother did to call us in from the fields to the table for lunch or supper. The bell is a fairly large handbell that was given my Mother when she retired from teaching. My wife dug it out of our boxes and put it by my bedside when I was convalesing and now uses it whenever she wants my attention as I hear it even when playing one of my instruments.

    Cody, I did think Gmonday's post was humorous, as in hindsight some of the reality of my experiences bathing were either so funny or just what I won't tell.

    Dizzy and others "puff" and when such produces as great a sound as Dizzy's, or what one is satisfied with, there isn't a problem. Yep, sound, sound, sound is the target goal. This encompasses all our methods and equipment.

    only 1 WEEK --- wow that is a real fair assessment --- what if one of your patients said ---"gee Doc, I tried this medicine for one week, instead of the 1 month that you asked me too,, and I don't like it --- it doesn't work???? -----OH wait a minute GM, no wonder your high range isn't FULL--- you can't think outside of the box ---I mean if you can't think Double D, oh - yeah you thought C cup and then A ---you will probably never invision a Double D --- thas is OK, you can stick with the A's, if that is what you want. ROFL ROFL ROFL I wonder how you use the Jettone, or the Schilke paperweight -- if you can't fill the cup!!!!!!!!!!good think your not a athlete -- with trouble filling your cup!!!!!!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL
