Me, too! HA! I started out on the French Horn, then went to trumpet and now I've moved on to electric bass. Last year I inherited my great grandmother's violin and I'd like to learn how to play that...but I'm a little scrrd. No frets. :/

Oh Ruby, the violin is absolutely my most favorite instrument ever. I want to learn it SOO badly. Frets are for sissies! We're trumpeteers! We've got three buttons for everything! Who needs 'em? :lol:

I'm impressed there are so many brass players on here! I played the French horn all through elementary school and high school, and the mellophone in the marching band. I liked the mellophone because it was so much easier to play. I still have my French horn, and my daughter might start playing it next year.

In the northeast we dealt a little bit with the heat, but also a lot with the rain and freezing cold!! I do have good memories of marching band though. I wasn't what you would call a "serious musician", but it was fun.

That's why you take them off when you get your nachos and coke... and hide. If the stadium is not divided you go over to the other side to eat 8) , and everyone just assumes you went to the bathroom :P Wow congrats are in order for varsity; I know that is not an easy feat.

Faith: you just made me very very happy that all the photos I have from my school days were wiped out by the last hurricane (thank you Ike!)



haha.. I shall inform him of that little trick! :D

Yip... I've lived here for over 6 years, and I love it. I see you live in Houston. I lived there before I moved here, while in undergrad. Houston gets a bad rap, but I really liked it. I miss the restaurants and the art scene. Those are two areas where Houston has Austin beat.

I will tell you now it is over-rated

:lol: That's what I've heard, but I would still like to experience a real snowfall at least once in my life... maybe make a snowman. It "snowed" here last year, but it pretty much melted before it even hit the ground.

Nice to "meet" you, too! Where in TX do you live?
