Yorkshireman spends money

Well it had to happen. I've actually gone and bought me a new sax. Couldn't resist it really. It's a Hanson ST8 bought new off ebay (aaargh) from Alistair himself. It's the blingtastic silver plate with gleaming golden strap-on attachments. You know, the ones modelled by Mr O' Git. Could be spending more time cleaning it than playing it, but there you go. I'm missing my fivers already. To be delivered tomorrow but will have to wear my glassblowers sunnies to cut down the glare. Perhaps I'll be allowed to busk in Ilkley town centre now.:w00t::shocked::confused::(

Bloody hell!

Share a love of banjos and now ST8s.

What's the wife look like Andy?>:)

Kev, please let the esteemed Mr. Sanders, just realised Sanders of the River, see this before you mod it.;}

Just realised that the rapidly approaching three quarters of a century, means I can't remember why or what I asked for.

Thanks chaps.

I had to go for a shiny one you know how grim it is oop north I'd never be able to find it otherwise.

As for what the wife looks like, Bill, very angry with industrial earprotectors.

Maybe one of Pete's new monster PPTs is called for.

Sanders of the River, District Officer for Northern Yorkshire.

Sir,
The moderator's suggestion is quite reasonable. I have a PPT9* and use a Fibracell baritone reed. Even alto wimps like YC can blow it. Threaten the Memsahib with your Government issue Pistol, buy a 9* from CafeSaxophone Commissioner Thomas and you should be a stirring sight busking in white jodhpurs and solar topee.
I have the honour to remain
Your obedient servant
old git.

I was thinking of the 11, as Pete says the 10* is a bit brighter

Sax arrived safe and sound. Opened the case at work and the gleam on my face made me look like the gal on the Terry's All Gold ad from the 70's. "See the face you love light up with T.A.G"
Wol my business partner from British West Hartlepool said that he'd wondered where Liberace's bog had gone!
Been out tonight to German class so haven't had a chance to blow it yet. How frustrating.
I don't think I'll sleep tonight

Memsahib doesn't respond to physical threats any more Bill as she's hidden the ammo. Curse that emancipation. Too skinny for jodhpurs and I don't need a topee as I still have my own hair.

Once blown, will report back.

Demn it all, Sanders of the River, what is happening to the Empire?

We send you to administer and keep the North Midland Natives somnolent, with an adequate supply of saxophone snake oil, beads and ribbons and you let the Memsahib lock the ammunition up in the scullery.

There is an obvious need for you to remind the Memsahib, as Albie did, that although Vickie is Queen and Ind Imp, he was the husband and must be obeyed. Unless you can re-establish this relationship, are you sure you are fit to be The District Officer and more important CaSLM representative?

On a more pleasant mote, have you noticed the new chap from our North American possession has a knowledge of 'grass? Do you suspect that he might be another covert five string picker?

Welcome to the State Bling Club.

Terribly sorry old fruit. The missive must be lost in transit. Never knew I'd been "up graded". I'll obviously keep the Mem' in order now I can call on the Caslm for support. Even she quakes at the thought of YoungCol paying a visit.

District Officer to the North and Midlands AND CaSLM Representative. Be still my beating heart. I'll use the title with pride.

(Thank you for not mentioning the episode of "ghastly beastliness". I assure you it's a thing of the past.)

Honourable Sir I remain your humble servant

Sanders (of the River)

Back to the thread title, of course, you haven't actually been spending money. All you've done is convert one asset (cash) into another asset (sax). There's been no loss, so nothing for the Mrs S to get upset about.

It's not the spending of cash she's worried about Jon.
"It's alright for you but I'm at the noisy end!".

Sue was the one who got me back into sax in 2001 after a hiatus of 20 years.

Can't fault the logic but how convincing it will be to the distaff side remains to be seen. I feel no urge at all to try convincing my better half that holiday money in her eyes deserves to be converted to sax tokens in mine. Therein could lie the slippery path to marital disharmony. Unless of course someone knows better.
