    I work at the local ACE Hardware part time nights and weekends for my second job. Today a customer recognised me as a member of the Americana Band that played a polka gig for a winery/brewery recently. It warms my heart that someone (cute female) would remember this face. Now that made my day!!!! Best wishes.

    I don't mind a thread being long when it has useful content, and I for one am frequently caught on the hop when asked to play something.

    The day after one of my gigs I was talking to somebody who had heard us play -- he was very enthusiastic about the great band which I was happy to hear. Then he asked me did I know anybody in the band! Oh well.

    Actually my 6 year old grandson brought me his starter piano book and asked if I could play the songs for him, I think I did to his satisfaction.

    Regards, Stuart.

    No mean feat playing polyphonic piano music on the trumpet!

    His starter book only used one finger at a time on the right hand, no left. Polyphonics I can do a little on French Horn but not on trumpet. I had a friend whose party piece was to play "Abide With Me" in 2 part harmony on French Horn.

    Regards, Stuart.
