I avoided adding this because the thought of dead flowers is sad. Yah, I know...silly, right? :). - Britgirl

Talking' to some rich folk that you know? :).

Sax, sax, and more sax. Nuthin' like lotsa good sax. Though as one becomes a bit longer in the tooth, one adapts. Not as much frenzied, staccato sax, but more up-and-down runs with sustained, soaring high notes. Just gotta be careful not to bust your reed:).
