Give me advice on how to make things better

lost and found

Postby bloke » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:19 am

1. Has anyone seen my black-rimmed sunglasses...??
I tried to play some jazz yesterday without them, and - instead - had to close my eyes.

2. I would like to take this opportunity to suggest that a new forum be created for "Lost and Found"...lost (found?) tubas, bags, cases, baritone horns, community-bandmen-style fancy folding music stands, stand lights, expensive lubricants, special chairs, folders of music, cummerbunds, black bow ties, bell screws/finger buttons, goosenecks/bits, spats/overlays/shakos/white bucks, and (of course) mouthpieces.

Excellent idea.
Some time ago I lost my mind, and now have no idea where to look for it! :tuba:

If i had made such a forum, where would i have left it?

Alas, lost and founds are a good thing to have and to know about.

Came cross what at a glance looked likw important electronics left behind by someone, if not actually expenseive, and shlepped it over to the local constabulary. Hope they can track down the owner...
Thanks for playing!

If you taught band. You had a lost and found box. Lots of things went in, but nothing was ever taken out, so I guess it was just a List box.
Or would that be just a Found box?

A lot of it was actually nice stuff, lots of jackets and winter coats, backpacks, shoes (why would a jr. high kid leave their shoes in the band hall?). I always wondered if any of their parents ever said, "hey, where's that new $80 coat I just bought you?"

At least Goodwill and similar organizations benefited from it.

So you're saying you looked like a professional improvisor? Isn't that the emoting you were looking for onn another thread?

I'm considering filing grievances with my per-service orchestras to wear Emotional Support Sunglasses (ESS), aka Service Sunglasses (SS).

When I crack/splat a not-high pitch...or come in at the wrong time...perhaps no one (re: the sunglasses) will know who did it...(??)

I may be able to help you. Place your hand (either one) on the top of your head and begin sliding forward. You should eventually feel them. Seems to work for most people that lose their reading glasses.

That's known as the "I can't look for my glasses until I find them" scenario. I did it once recently too. I was never supposed to get this old. Unfair.
