    Default Quite ill with a trach and a feeding tube

    I am missing the cafe but had a serious breathing emergency. I will be in a rest home for some time learning to breath and eating from a peg tube. Miss all of you! Dan Brooks

    Two Old Gibson A Mandolins passed down through my wife's family. These are the mandolins that got me started on mandolin in 1982. Then I didn't touch it again until 2013.

    Breathing is one of a handful of things more important than music. Keep on doing both.
