The office desk has changed a bit since last year, most noticeable is the addition of a gigantic HD screen.
It’s so I can see all those tiny pixels better. At least that is what I tell my wife. Click on any image to see a larger view.
As it turns out I did not lock away my horn into a hall closet. It’s skeletal remains haunt the usual space on my desk. It serves as a reminder that in a few weeks I need to get back into it again.
Like a scene from a bad horror movie, the horn’s guts shine lifelessly in a metallic bowl on the opposite side of the desk, near the new monitor.
Because the climate in Phoenix is so dusty, I will probably run water through the horn and slides before re-assembling the patient in a few weeks.
In the corner between the two monitors are the contents of my mouthpiece pouch and some odds and ends – including lubricants, thumb drives and a mute.
The large bottle of Marvel oil was something I bought many years ago and as a heavy oil it works great at one-third the price of specialty instrument oils. I like Fat Cat oil simply because there is a kitty on the bottle and it mixes well enough with the Marvel oil to produce a good medium-grade oil.
The music stand
In the far corner is the music stand. I have it packed with materials that I want to start working on in a few weeks.
