And a haiku:

I think it's quite grand
Tuba playing in a band
I play when I can
"Bessophone" w/ 2-piece Imperial Blokepiece,
Lexan 32.6 Modified Helleberg rim & modified .080 extender
Wessex BR115 w/ Wick Ultra SMB6
King Super 20 trumpet w/ Bach 3C/76
Fanned fret bass and electric guitars

OK, this limerick has been stuck on my desk for years.
Some of my colleagues will no doubt realize who this particular tubist was... but if you tell his widow about this she may never speak to me again... :)
For the sake of propriety, I am leaving off the last few words. those of you who have the correct mindset for completing it will have no trouble.

There once was a tubist named Ed,
Who practiced a whole lot in bed.
Since he played on his "C",
It was easy to see,
Why poor Ed................


Oh, I miss my old friend.....
sorry, I don't do signatures.
