Returning to my joy of music

Greetings and Salutations all! I'm happy to have found this resource.
My name is Doug. I hadn't played in over 40 years since High School. After having a mild stroke event in December of 2018, I found the "therapy" of playing trumpet! What a wonderful return to something I hadn't realized I was missing! I have a older Conn Victor from the mid 50's that's been waiting for my return and a recently purchased 80's Conn cornet with a shepherds crook that are my go to instruments. (Someday, maybe a Bach or a Yamaha.)
It's getting warmer here in central PA, I'm not sure if my neighbors are annoyed or entertained by my playing/practice with the windows open!!

Welcome back, sir, from an old goat who started up again after a 50 year hiatus.
I have 1962 Conn Victor 5A in my collection of horns. Large bore .485 and beautiful sound.
My neighbors are very kind and look ward to the summer months when I play on my back deck in the afternoons. So I guess I'm not doing too badly.
