Samuel,Do you think it might be because I couldn't play the trumpet before the lightning strike?
Dang it!! You tricked me. I was looking for a new recruit.
Sorry, Samuel! It's an old joke, somewhat altered:
"Doctor, will I be able to play the organ after the operation"
"Good! I've always wanted to play the organ!"
Seriously, I'm sorry you weren't in PY to play last Wednesday. Let us know of any future gig near here!
