I am happy to report that my friend Monte will recovery fully. He is still a bit vague but was able to talk to me on the phone. So happy days there.
On the other hand I failed in this years attempt to get on the Youtube symphony orchestra. Came in 45th for the Horns. Ah well, life goes on. It will probably humor the lot of you to know that I was the 3rd oldest person to try out.
But I did have a great first rehearsal with the community symphony I play in. Fun and hard music.
Love ya all!
Off to Practice!
