For those who remember gunshowtickets
I spoke with Giancarlo DiFazio's father this afternoon, and the trial of Gian's widow has been postponed AGAIN. January 6, 2020 is the new court date. Hopefully there will be no more delays, and justice will be served.
I noticed that Giancarlo's dad, Nino, has become a member of TrumpetBoards, so anyone wishing to communicate with him will be able to do so by starting a chat with difazio.
RE: A little humour
And that's how the fight started ........
One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift . .
The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started.....
My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion:
she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, "Do you know him?"
"Yes", she sighed,
"He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we
split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since."
"Good grief!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating
And then the fight started...
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.
But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.
Always something more important to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.
When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass,
busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.
I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.
I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.
I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, "What's on TV?"
I said, "Dust."
And then the fight started...
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 165 in about 2 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale.
And then the fight started......
I rear-ended a car this morning...the start of a REALLY bad day!
The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!
He looked up at me and said 'I am NOT Happy!'
So I said, 'Well, which one ARE you then?'
That's when the fight started.

RE: Under the radar
Dr GO's Ambassador is one of a fairly small herd of unicorns; they do exist, though. A larger number plays anywhere from mediocre to pretty good. They were all well-made and sturdy. I particularly like the water key arrangement, and Olds put some thought into producing visually appealing instruments.
RE: Bugles Across America
What is considered a fake bugle?
It's an electronic device that looks like a bugle. The user pretends to play, and a recording actually sounds Taps. It usually works as intended. BAA has examples of when it doesn't. Not pretty.
RE: King Silver Flair - Buying Advice
I would love to see you do a review of King Silver Flair!! compare them to some other offerings
Perhaps you intended to respond to someone who has more experience with King.
I have not played a Silver Flair, but I've played two Super 20s, both with the Sterling Silver bell. I found them robust, adequate, competent, on pitch, and visually appealing. They had a tendency toward a bright sound. I had an early Bach Mt. Vernon Model 37 at the time, which was a magical instrument. The Super 20s were excellent trumpets to play, but the Bach was an extension of my mind.
I also had a Cleveland 602 cornet for a number of years. The price was right; It was a gift from my father-in-law (also a trumpet player; may he rest in Peace.), who found it at a garage sale. A well-built, sturdy horn with playable intonation and adequate valves, it had a bright timbre, regardless of mouthpiece. You'd never mistake the sound for that of a cornet.
