I heard a meme yesterday on Sirius XM ...it was about guitars, but it works as well or perhaps even better for trumpets...

All the trumpets you own + 2 = Happiness

Happiness is an absurd concept. Objects don't do anything other than fill a requirement.

You're welcome.

Happiness is French silk pie, not a trumpet.

That just goes to show how factually accurate memes are.

Guitars...pffftt....

I'd be happy if I could just have a 20,000 square foot shop filled with the following things:

1. trumpets
2. organs
3. bicycles
4. old woodworking machinery
5. guns

I would agree with the gentleman that said a return to gigging made him happy. Around the world millions of musicians had their vocations and avocations curtailed by the COVID. To read comments in here about when bands could go back to playing. That was cool. I would like to add that hearing certain music will always make me feel warm, comfortable and secure.

The last of the groups I was playing with before Covid is going to start up rehearsals finally again next week. That makes me happy, even though gigs are still few and far between, partly because a lot of fellow musicians aren't comfortable playing indoor gigs right now, even if they're vaccinated.

Outdoor is okay in Texas this time of year, but really hoping that changes soon.
