OK you guys. I get it and I sigh a sigh of relief. Loved the comments, and I think I might just fit in here. Since I can't play any more, maybe I can hang with guys( or girls) who can.
Hmm, requirements. Registered with an alias (family dog's name) then started typing. Yeah, that's about it! Oh yeah, I do play and collects trumpets.

Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!
My cat Bear signed me up and still does most of the posting. He has more typing skill than my scratch and peck style.
He asked me to ask Allan, why he can't play any more.

I can't play any more because I get weird discomfort in my chest when I play. Not pain, just a strange feeling. The world won't miss my playing, after being off for some 40 years I never did recover my chops. Thanks for asking. I played from ages 10 through 29. Grammar school band, High School and the 10 years in several AF Bands. My favorite position was 2nd or jazz chair, but sometimes I did play first chair. TMI? Never had a real trumpet teacher, but had one lesson with the principal trpt. player of the CSO back in the 50s. Unfortunately he didn't show up and I got a "lesson" from one of his advanced students who mostly played for me, and yes he was impressive.
