365 Challenge – May 12, 2010

Just Getting Broken in Good...

I was at my step-son, Jared’s, band concert last night and caught this image while waiting for him to finish cleaning up afterwards.  An old trumpet.  I played trumpet from 4th-10th grades.  Always wanted one of those fancy-smancy silver “professional” horns, but never got one.  This is the kind of horn payed by some of my heros; Doc Severensen, Maynard Ferguson,  and many others.  These instruments will last for several generations, and this one looks to be just about hitting it’s stride.  Just getting broken in good.

    Do you remember I wrote to Doc and he sent you an autographed photo [was it for graduation….? Or whatever]. Another of those treasure that went up in smoke. Sigh.
