Comments: Running, Rain, Ruminating over a Bass

OK, let's think about this. For the price of a double bass you can get a nice stand of bagpipes. Pipes are easier to haul to gigs in a car, easier to take with you when you fly, and people will buy you beer when you lurch into a bar and play. Oh, and you aren't expected to wear skivvies when you play the pipes, so it's easier to discharge the beer.

Methinks Angus is trying to make a point... although I think it's more about the beer and lack of skivvies than it is about the musical instrument. ROFLMAO.

One of my cousins took up playing the upright bass. It helped him focus (ADHD) and took him to Europe for a year of studies. He returned and studied with Gary Karr (internationally known classical bassist), and he played with the Colorado Symphony's young artists orchestra.

One year later, he abruptly quit, married an ethereal blonde, beautiful gal, entered Nashota House Theological Seminary and is now an Episcopal priest in the San Antonio, Texas area.

He hasn't played the bass since.

Moral of the story: "Don't...just don't attempt to second guess in the ways of fate."

Dad- I have bagpipes in my closet! I don't have to spend ANYTHING if he wants to play those! Besides... he can't play in band if he's on the pipes. He can on the upright and I suspect he thinks there is a girl factor. ;-)

Teresa- He points usually revolve around a good single malt scotch. :)

Sven- Holy crap, that his really daggum funny! I'm not picturing Ringo as a priest... but I'm sure the ethereal blonde would make him very very happy... :)
