Yeah, I know, this is not about tubas, but it IS an important issue for youthful tubists, and an unavoidable one for aging players:
I can't recall disagreeing with you on anything before, but I've never AGREED more strongly. All you young guys & dolls, if you don't listen to anything else Joe S. says, listen to this! I promise, once you get that hot car you'll want a tricked-up pick-up. The day after you close on the vacation house at the lake, you'll be wanting one in the mountains. It is a CONSTANT to want stuff, and this want can never be satisfied. So get the things you need, budget an amount you can afford for fun & games, and SAVE so you can retire while you are not too old to enjoy it. The greatest luxury is time without having to do things you don't want to do.
