My life right now : My name is George Early and I`m 72 years old and have been retired for 11 years from a power company as a mechanic , primarily jet engines which is what I went to school for in the early 70`s. I have an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army and the U.S. Airforce.
My musical "career" started when I was 65 years old at the Univ. of Miami in the above senior band for seniors that wanted to learn a musical instrument. I now play trumpet in a regular band also, " The North Miami Pops" which is a community band in The City of North Miami Fl.
The pandemic has both organizations on hold but we have virtual practice at U.M. which requires more learning ( computer skills).
If this is what`s meant by " sent out to pasture" I should have been sent out long ago!!! This is true living.
