Excellent news

My eight-year-old twins have started learning a musical instrument at their school. The boy has been given a French Horn and the girl has a Tenor Horn - to practice with at home.

This is a French Horn:














And this is a Tenor Horn:

I'm sure you'll join me in agreeing that this is, in every way, absolutely excellent news.

Something else we have in common Paulie... except both mine got the tenor horn. Saturday morning band practice we could barely all fit in the car, but as my son was never very musically blessed, he could wing it in the band by puffing his cheeks a lot and letting the other three do the work. Like father....

Nice sounds, too. My son was put on the flute [partly to help his asthma] which is easier to carry but you always thought he might end up by invading Silesia...

You've been torturing them with your guitar for 8 years so it's only fair they've been given a proper chance to get even.

Why not form a Partridge Family-style band?
