    My wife loves the following You Tube Video:

    Brass player's EX-girlfriend - YouTube

    But, despite really feeling this way, for our 28t wedding anniversary today she contacted my teacher for advice and bought me a mouthpiece that I was considering. Despite feeling that way, she purchased a mint Bach Mt. Vernon medium bore trumpet same vintage as me, with signed guarantee, for my 50th birthday. Despite feeing that way, she took me to the Monette factory two years ago for my 51st birthday to purchase the B3FS7. Despite feeling way, I can in a few short minutes practice at home on without a practice mute. I am feeling very blessed.

    40 years for me in June. My wife would never think of buying me anything trumpet related. Mind you I've usually bought what I want and just tell her to give some money towards it.

    Let's see now. 12 + 10 + 6 = Yeah. I've been married 28 years. Never had a domestic problem, music related.

    Wow. Someone tell her shes not good looking enough to be such a bitch. Funny stuff. Its 31 years for me. Mine is a saint thats been through a lot of health problems. Stomach banding and now two new knees and shes on her way to be her old beautiful self again. Im so proud of her, her name is Sherri. Congratulations to all of you who have wives like mine! Great thread. Best wishes.

    My wife tolerates my practicing as long as she doesn't have to hear it and it doesn't take any time. She became a lot less enthused about my playing when she realized that music takes time and practice. Exercises drive her crazy; etudes not so much so; music is OK until repetition. With anything other than a practice mute, I can be six rooms away with the doors closed, and she'll complain that she has to turn up the TV to compensate. Projection!

    Pretty much sums it up, except for long tones.

    Yours and J. Jerichos echo my wife's sentiments as well.
