My good friend Carol, surprised me with
this beautifully crocheted jacket that she
made and gave to me, this past weekend.
I love it.
She is so talented as she also made for me
the beautiful silver heart shaped necklace
with a paw print that I am wearing,
in memory of my 18 year old cat
that passed away last year.
She can be located at her silver website
which also links you to her Blogs
Thank you so much Carol, for the surprise and
the wonderful Friendship we have.

IT IS SAXOPHONE DAY
SUCH GREAT MEMORIES OF HIGH SCHOOL
AND MY SON PLAYING TENOR SAXOPHONE
IN MARCHING AND JAZZ BAND

When : Always November 6th
Saxophone Day is today. The Saxophone is a classical woodwind instrument. It is an essential instrument in jazz bands, symphonic bands, marching bands and more. It's only fitting that this great instrument has a day of recognition all to its own.
The Saxophone was invented around 1840. It was created by Adolphe Sax, a Belgian musical instrument maker. The sax is made of brass.
Adophe Sax invented 8 types of saxophones: Sopranino, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass, Contrabass, and Subcontrabass. The first Saxophone ever created was the Bass Saxophone. A 9th type of Saxophone, the Soprillo Saxophone, was invented in 2004. It is the smallest Saxophone.
Some famous Saxophone Players (Alphabetical order):
- John Coltrane
- Stan Getz
- Coleman Randolph Hawkins "Hawk"
- James Moody
- Charlie "The Bird" Parker
- Lester Prez Young
Happy Saxophone Day!!!
