Life begins at 40

I've turned 40. It didn't hurt.

I realise I didn't post for over a excuses, just didn't feel the urge.

I have taken up my favourite instrument, the saxophone.

I dearly hope I can release my inner Charlie Parker though it may take me a few years (one lives in hope).

Hopefully the weather will stay pleasant for some gardening this weekend.

I'm off to get saxy.

When you say you've taken up the saxophone, does that mean starting to learn it or playing it again after a break? Whatever, it sounds like fun. I tried to learn piano when I was a kid but I was completely useless. I don't think my teacher had ever seen anyone quite so unpromising.

Oh, Happy 40th by the way! Plenty more time to do all those things you haven't quite got round to....

Nick: just started, never even held one before. I'll be booking lessons in the next week or so when I will have some time.

Killer, welcome.

Dunno about it making me look cool, red in the face and blowing into a complicated brass tubing contraption....hmmmm. Sounds fabulous though.
