    No Mike... you are suffering from a delusional state. Once the N + 1 gets you... life as you know it... has pretty much ended. Oh sure... I thought I was immune... then that damn ebay bid for the Super Recording came up, and I felt my temperature rise, the riggers began, then my tremoring finger hit that bid button... Oh no... I didn't get the bid... but I am perusing another lead for a Super Recording.... its almost in my reach... Oh the turmoil... Gotta have it... N + 1 BE GONE... BUT NO... NO... NOOOOOOOOO!

    Maybe you're right, Gary. Especially since I'm surfing the horn section on eBay right now. :-)

    So... Mike and Gary, have you decided? Which one of those fine instruments you now own will you be playing less once the next one is acquired?:think:

    Day 5: Home - 53 Olds Recording; Getzen Eterna Flugelhorn; Martin Committee; Kanstul Flugelhorn OR IF AT JAZZ GIG: Martin Committee; Kanstul Flugelhorn (Getzen Flugelhorn if Outside gig on hot or cold day)
    Day 6: Quintet Rehearsal - Martin Committee; Kanstul Flugelhorn OR IF AT JAZZ GIG: Martin Committee; Kanstul Flugelhorn (Getzen Flugelhorn if Outside gig on hot or cold day)

    Head spinning...must sit down.:stars:
    Seriously, Gary, in spite of the fact that there have been times in my life when I have been really busy, I am amazed that you can keep up this playing pace and still manage all of your other priorities. It makes me tired just thinking about it!

    Jim,

    My priorities ARE my trumpet playing. My passion is both music and caring for my patients. When you live life with passion, you make it happen.
