I have one Schilke mouthpiece: 17. The other mouthpiece is a Yamaha 11 that came with the trumpet.

I only post pictures I find on the internet. If I posted personal stuff, I'd have to add a comment, and this here thread is too far away. When I see pictures of people, I always wonder if it's someone I should "know" and it kind of leaves hanging uncomfortably.

Pic 579 was my dog. How she used to watch TV with me every night. Apparently the shows were better inverted…
Had to put her down a week ago last Tuesday. Still catching myself forgetting she’s gone. Old habits…

I haven’t had a dog in decades and once in a while I still think about my latest one and how much fun we had.

But see that’s what I mean in my last post. A picture of a dog can be likeable for obvious reasons (doing a dumb trick) or for unobvious readons (known to have done dumb tricks off camera). If I don’t know the dog, I probably won’t “like” the picture because whatever is special about it is a mystery.

Same with a person. Someone is bound to post a picture of the most attractive woman he knows, getting everyone to act like dogs, and then say: “BTW that’s my wife!” Or “that’s my daughter!” and then everyone’s in the most awkward position. (Not that anything like that has ever happened to me of course).

Anyway. Not the worst of problems and probably quite low on anyone’s list of concerns. Carry on.

Most of the pix are eye-catching and the content is obvious. Some are a little confusing, some on the forum might like the image source, identity of the people in the image, that sort of thing.
So I'm missing something with these threads. Why bother with an image only thread to start with? If people now need a completely separate thread to comment about those images then why not just change the first thread to allow comments?

Seems unnecessarily complicated. What is the attraction?

Because if you allow comments, then one photo will get people off on different kinds of subjects and then 25 posts later , you finally see another image as everybody hogs the whole thread, because they want to impose their opinion on to everybody else. I did suggest that the title of the thread be changed to allow comments but there were a few people who were opposed to it. Some people want comments, some people don't ,you can't please everybody.
The purpose of the thread is to let everyone see all of the great images that are around the world, whether it is nature or freaks of nature or places that people will never ever get to see and visit, and unique Cars, airplanes, boats, you name it, there is all kinds of really great images to, as most people are visually oriented. That's why the photography is such a huge hobby now. Only in modern history has photography allowed us to view things that are really happening all over the entire planet and with the computer, it is right there in front of our noses, Most every foru, m that I have been on has a "post a picture" thread. People love cool photos.

Good to see some other brass players here. I was in a top B-grade and middling A-grade brass marching band back in the 80's. Good fun. Still got the cornet around somewhere. We also had a smaller 20-piece band that played live at dances and other events.

I also took up flute about 15 years back. Being able to read and interpret the music from the A-grade perspective helped me pick up the flute quite quickly. I should get back onto that.

The picture of the three guys in tuxes where part of a batchelor party. The guns they are holding are plastic prop guns. We had submachine guns we would rent. With an instructor per person.

I suspect that this isn't up to electrical code anywhere except PartsUnknown, Southern North Mongolia.
Not only is the very arrangement unbelievably stupid and dangerous, it doesn't even have the loop of the wire going in the right direction. Tightening the screw is supposed to help keep the wire in place, not loosen it.

#709 shows Neil Armstrong with what I presume are all the best crafts he’s ever flown.

Same thing could be done with anyone and the cars they have owned. Could be funny. Maybe a good artist could make a few bucks doing that for car fans.

Me standing with a Ford Escort and a Plymouth Valiant isn’t in the same league as Neil with the X-15 and Apollo.

For Dr. Wogz......RE: posts 763 and 766:

First, I am likely one of the few that know what we are looking at. I'm "from Vermont" originally (way up north in Richford) and one half of my family is all Quebecois. Basically my family is one of those "border families" with feet in both countries.

As to the first pic.....yep, poutine is all French Canadian in my book. Love it or hate it, it's simply part of the culture and that's that. At least one half of my extended family is all about it.

As to the second....now THAT'S a blast from my past, and a big part of my younger years. Always loved sugaring season; ahh the memories. Now, that said, sugar-on-snow is VERY much a Vermont thing. Yeah, I know, y'all canuckians and northern New Yorkers think that maple syrup/sugaring is your thing, but sorry, any REAL maple is from Vermont, and part of that heritage. And, if you really knew sugar-on-snow you would picture it with dill pickles on the side (and perhaps a plain donut)....that's real traditional (though lots of folks probably would be confused by it).

peace, poutine, & rockets,
s6

Looks like canned chicken to me but it’s probably something I never had like partridge or some kind of Quebec-only tuna-like fishy something.

not a fish or a bird..

2 more..

:D
I am stating now that I am not making a guess, so please do not subtract from other's guesses.

I had ostrich, I believe, when in Montreal years ago. It tasted like the most tender veal (beef) that I had enjoyed before and had a very nice and non-gamy taste. If I were playing and didn't know that an ostrich was a bird, that would have been my guess. But it isn't, as I'm not playing (and an ostrich is a bird).

Then again, it could have been emu. It was 20+ years ago. I think an emu is also a bird, but I'm still not playing either way.

Sandy.

Not emu because I had emu and it's brown meat that looks like beef. Not sure it's classified as "red meat" but it certainly isn't light as in the photo.

I don't know what is so light, but isn't bird or fish. At this point, it's almost certainly something I wouldn't eat, so I'm out.
