@Birdiebot If it were my horn, I would definitely say no. But the trumpet is not the same thing - and it’s not being used now.
@gb1191 Yes, you may use it. Just be nice to it.

after sleeping most of the day, I’m now wide awake. Hmmm, guess it’s time to start in on Season 3 of ‘Heroes’ :D
Surgery went great. Home sipping ginger ale and watching THX 1138. Dr. said I could start horn again right away. I may wait a few days.
@Birdiebot Thanks. It went REALLY well. Although I’m not looking forward to the drugs wearing off.
@Birdiebot I do it all the time. Easier/harder depending on what it is. There are some great melodies. Of course I often sing off beats!
@Birdiebot Good idea. Enjoy!
as if 2 weeks off wasn’t enough, I think I’ll take a 4 day weekend!
is finally wound down and going to bed. It’ll be an interesting day tomorrow.
