With apologies to Calypso, where today on his blog I commented that I don't have noise in my hood. I must confess TODAY I do............and I have had a bit off and on for a couple of weeks. I had forgotten. For you see, when the primary school lets out every day, there are a few dedicated new bugle players and one drummer trying desperately to be instrument players - not musicians.
There must be three or four bugle players. Very funny. They remind me of the kid in my son's Boy Scout troop who was the designated bugle player and was so shy that he played taps and every other bit of musicthing from behind the bathroom door of their boy scout hut. THAT's what this group sounds like - shy, scared to death kids, but DETERMINED.
The noise certainly doesn't bother me because they only practice for about 45 minutes. Every now and then the drummer chimes in but never does it sound like he was supposed to do so.
Hopefully whatever they are practicing for isn't going to happen for a very long time!
