The boy is in band for his first time this year. He elected to play the Trumpet. My dad let him use his Trumpet he played in the Tivy High School marching band. His Uncle passed it down to him and the tradition goes on. It is a Frank Holton & Co 1926 silver trumpet. I picked it up today and it felt like an old friend. I played the Sesame Street tune on it when I was 7. My mom said I picked it up and mimicked the tune after a couple of days of trying. Now The Boy has his turn with it. My dad never let me use it in band , they bought me a coronet. But The Boy has been held to an oath to take care of it. We will see how he does. If some asshole hadn't stolen our camera I would post some pictures.
Here are the only pictures that I could find of one.
