April 12th, 2011
I'm back in Logan and my daily grind. The trip back from Sheridan was fun since I had the airliner all to myself on the leg from Sheridan to Denver. The steward recognized me from my trip there and asked me if he had to demonstrate the safety features again. Pretty fun being the only one on a 30 passenger plane; I just sat in the middle of the back seat and enjoyed the luxury.
To follow up on my earlier observations about Wyoming, I am still as impressed with the people as I was on the first day I was there. Didn't encounter any rude person, no one asked me "Where are you from", I could walk into any establishment and felt treated as well as the locals. I've never experienced this before, except down in Mexico or a certain chain of Islands in the Pacific.
Bought one of those Chinese saxophones off EBAY and had it shipped to the Mountain view Motel where I spent last week. I have read good reviews about this horn and I must agree. Being a Tenor sax player I was warned about the difficulties in playing the Soprano sax (which is about the same size as a clarinet). I had little problem learning to play it and plan to play the Soprano many years into the future.
The case is 1/4 the size of my Tenor, and can play notes so high it can wake the dead with little problem. The Soprano is in the key of B flat just like the Tenor, so I can play the same music on both horns. I can also play trumpet music with it and hit the same high notes.
After being sick for the past month I finally acquiesced and went to see my doctor, turns out I have "walking pneumonia" which will soon be kicked after a 10 day regiment of horse pill sized antibiotics.
He also included a bottle of Codeine cough syrup, which is kicking my ass as I type. Never mix two beers with two teaspoons of this shit! My cough is gone, so no more codeine for me tonight.
That's all for now,
