    Celebrations in the Band Club tonight as our 2nd cornet player Thelma Wardle turns 75. Thelma has been playing for well over 60 of those years and shows no sign of letting up yet.
    Sharing her birthday is solo horn player Anita Morrison, who claims to be a fair bit younger!
    Many Happy Returns to them both!

    Thanks Andy you are kind !

    Just keep treating me the same as always and I will keep going... Really enjoying banding with Kippax and Oddbod and Teflon.

    Best wishes to Anita and hope she carries on as long as I have.

    :clap: Well done Mrs Bucket!! You desrerve a medal as big as a dustbin lid for all the devoted years you have given to the movement, though I would say that, wouldn't I?.....(Mum!):clap:

    Congrats on your Birthday.:D

    Also, congrats to Anita, an absolute inspiration to horn sections worldwide (well, I would say that as I'm in striking distance twice a week... well, maybe once..:redface: )

    Very good of all you old experienced folk to accept such a tender, young, conductor.

    Maturity suits you well, along with your mellowed psychological approach, plus a willingness to subjugate your own musical inclinations to achieve success.
    The results speak for themselves.

    I must admit I wasn't too sure about the "Mellowed" bit !!!
    Probably because when I wrote it I was a bit "Mellow" myself - Ha ! Ha !
