Fixed for being honest with oneself.

Any extra pay, or just a "Good work, pal"?

It's silver. Almost 20 years old. Sadly I did not take care of the finish like I should have and some of it has worn through on the valves now.

So the silver is wearing off and showing the underlying brass? Sounds like it could look neat. I always liked how I wore through the lacquer on some parts of my trumpet.

To get a lot of people really stressed out about the weather, apparently. Myself included.

I thought that's why they launched the Roadster on Falcon Heavy?

Whatever happened it's made the surface matte, instead of shiny. A bit weird because I mostly didn't touch it with my hands. Used a cloth.

Do you play now?

Ah I see.

I do not, my trumpet was either egregiously misplaced or stolen when I was in college and moving from one house to another :(

Your dirty is cleaner than my clean.

Tubeless wheel/tire on wheelbarrow fixed. It took a new valve stem from ScamBay, a little patience, and one CO2 cartridge.

I had to buy a 4-pack of valve stems. I doubt I will ever need the other 3, but they are on the pegboard just in case. If anyone needs one (or two or three), PM me. They are Schrader, for .455 inch hole, and 3/4 inch long.

Major bummer.

It's weird how some things disappear. The trumpet came with two tuning slides--one a larger diameter that made it play a bit differently.

Somehow I lost one of them. wut The last time I looked they were like $185, so I've never gotten another one.

Donít feel embarrassed. Many people experience leaks as they age, especially when excited.
