HORNING-IN ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was a Horn of Plenty at 7th and Montana yesterday as an Anonymous Music Man treated the crowd to Plenty of Horn ... whether they liked it or not. Bob and Joyce were on the scene and provided me with a full report. Apparently, the Music Man (above left) never leaves home without his trumpet, even though the police have already cited him for playing in public without a performer's license. His "Advisor" (above right) coaxed him into pulling out his trumpet and blasting it at oncoming traffic, all the while instructing him on the fine art of getting money from pedestrians. Judging from what I heard about yesterday's performance, however, it sounds like folks might be more willing to pay this particular Music Man to blow town instead of his trumpet ...!

For years there was a man in San Antonio who beat on a barrel and people threw money to him. He became well known. Sadly he died a few years ago.

Maybe he needs to move to a cooler climate, seems like to much hot air.
