    "Patches? We ain't got no patches. We don't need no patches. I don't have to show you any stinking patches!"
    OK, a bad parody of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, but having a Letterman jacket is honor enough. No need for us to trumpet ourselves through our clothing--we do it by playing the trumpet.

    Though I agree with vulgano brother I'd suspect you could find them on ebay pretty easily. I've found flugel- patterned scrub hats there before...

    There are computer sign shops that do this if they provide embroidery as many now do. If they don't have it in stock and one is in their resource book, the shop here charges $8.00 more and will get it. The actual patch prices vary with sizes and shapes.

    I've seen the T-shirts at various music shops as are pre-prepared with ink silk screen printing process similar to the souvenir types, however these current sign shops can produce a custom one for about the same price as some music groups now sell theirs to the public to augment their expenses and earnings. IF, and a very big IF, I'd prefer an embroidered shirt much in the style of a team bowling shirt as if to outfit a community band that performed a lot outdoors in the warmer climes.

    Aren't letterman jackets associated with - sports - that activity in school that steals all of the budget and leaves no money left for the music department?

    Why would a trumpet player need that?

    Back when I went to school, all the activities provided letters for the seniors, but then we each had to pay for the jacket in school colors which were then orded and have the patches sewn on when the jacket came in. The full price then for the jacket was $25.00 which today one couldn't buy for less than $200. While I had earned 4 letters, it was only the band one that I had sewn on my jacket as it had 5 stripes indicating the years I had participated in it while all my three others had less stripes.

    It is mostly inflation that steals the budget together with decay of the infrastructure. The town high school building I went to has now been torn down (before it fell down) and consolidated with two other communities with a newly built campus as also now requires busing and cafeteria services. Yep, everything costs much more now than then, but most incomes have not juxtaposed this increase thereby the income and other taxes just aren't available to pay for what the governments (National, state, and local) provide. Dream on if you ever again expect to pay less than 25 cents for a gallon of gasoline again or go to a movie for the same cost, or even pay a nickel for a bottle of Coca-Cola, or a cup of coffee but I can still remember when such was possible.

    A top lip scar is the consequence of too much elbow pressure. I don't have one that is noticeable although my lips do feel more solid in that area (callusses???). Usually, lip scars develop over time from repeated split lips as happened to me only once.
