OK, with that out of the way I want to express my feelings on this New Years Eve 2010.
I Want to express what my Dad meant to me. I want to express how I felt as a little boy sitting with the audience at one of his community orchestra concerts. He played first trumpet for the band. I was a little boy sitting with my Mom in a nice concert hall. I was very proud of my Dad. At intermission time halfway through the concert I would go backstage with all the other musicians where my Dad was and give him a big hug. I was so proud of him. Before I could go backstage I would have to tell the security I was the son of my Dad. Being so little I suspect they thought I was safe and telling the truth. I was, and they let me in. But I can't stop remembering those times in my childhood, and I don't want to stop, its all I have now. As do we all, memories.
Just doing a little reminiscing tonight.
Everyone have a happy New Year, and thank you for joining this forum and being a part of our community. I appreciate everyone of you. You are my online family. :)
