    Again, my thanks to you all for your kind wishes. I guess some folks don't necessarily look forward to their birthdays as they get older, but then again, it is nice to keep "having" birthdays as you get older!

    Hey John, when you reach the 3/4 century it's truly an eye opening experience. To survive that long amazes me all that has transpired all those years and now I'm playing bass trombone in a Jazz Band made up mostly of seniors. One trumpet player is 93 and still sounds good. Having met the husband of one of my son's classmates who still in his 30's plays in the Air Force Airman of Note in D.C. was amazed that I played bass bone and double valved at that. He told me it was awesome. So John, keep on playing and stay safe.

    Good for you! And that is definitely the plan I have, "to play 'till I drop". My euphonium section mate will be 94 this year!! That is my short term goal now, to play longer than him!!

    Thanks so much, Doug! The motorcycle is being diligently trickle charged in the garage for the time being. Started once a month or so on a "nice" day (above freezing and sunny). And said motorcycle is waiting for lovely wife and humble husband to try out their brand new (got the fit right this time, grrr!) helmets with the Cardo comm system re-installed by aforementioned humble husband. So, spending most of the time now putting more miles on my horns, a nice diversion anytime. Realizing that as one moves into their mid 70's, it takes a little longer and a little more practice to keep things working and sounding like they used to. I am still pretty well satisfied with my playing at this tender age, and just hope I can keep it mostly at the current level for many years to come. Time will tell. I do sit next to an almost 94 year old gent in my euphonium section in our New Horizons Band. That is pretty inspiring.
