Wishing you a quick recovery and my sympathies.  Reminds me of my days with
the Dolphin jazz band in Hastings when a frantic jiver, driven to a frenzy
by the passion of our music, flung her arm out and hit my slide - taking out
my front tooth as clean as a whistle!    That was the end of me for the
It was a blessing in disguise, as my dentist put on a crown which improved
my embouchoire considerably, the old tooth used to stick out a bit!

P.S. Had a great time in Spain in April.  Sat in three times with the
Coastline Dixielanders (Malaga area)
    My old school friend, Geoff Coates plays banjo and sings with the band.
Mike, the trombonist, kindly lent me a trombone and he switched to
sousaphone.  Mike played for the RAF for 22 years and knows his horn.
Too bad I did not have time for Madrid - my wife only let me off the hook
for ten days and so I had to get back to T.O.   i plan to return next year
and visit my sister again - next time I will make it to Madrid!
