How I miss that whole family.

2. I enjoyed going there on my first college band trip.

However, playing 3-4 concerts per day at the high schools and Methodist churches in west Texas and New Mexico was exhausting.

3. What did you play?

Hopefully not a woodwind. I couldn’t imagine having to blow anything that frequently. Even in college.

6. I played trumpet.

That means I was a buzzer instead of a blower.

Our band also had a tuba player who was the state champion accordionist (Mike Middleton). He really hammed it up playing "Saber Dance" with the band accompanying him. Mike is a radiologist now, but he plays a lot of the German festivals in central Texas with his two sons who also play tuba. They are billed as Mike & The Middletones.

8. Haven't been there since the '70s.

Back then, the tour included an impressive display of the equipment used in mining guano.

I'm guessing that Obama might have thought such equipment would have come in handy when dealing with Congress and birthers, etc. . . .

11. I'm so jealous!

I have been wanting to see Carlsbad Caverns since I was a kid. I was near it several times, but just never got there.

I hope the Obamas are enjoying New Mexico. It's a beautiful state. I'd move there in a heartbeat if given the chance.

12. Huh?

He's not ignoring his family? He's not walking 10 feet in front of them? He seems to be enjoying his time with them? How unpresidential!

14. Never been to Carlsbad, but........

I've seen Luray and the Endless Caverns in Virginia, and that gives me an idea of what he must have experienced.
