Just thought I would post a picture of the striped Ebony trumpet I got from Dad:
I went to visit Dad, Dewey and Alice with the intention of getting one from an entirely different wood, but this one just jumped into my hand and insisted! A beautiful, beautiful call-the picture just doesn't do either the lovely creaminess of the lighter ebony or the richness or the darker stripes justice.
And it sounds great too! It even sounded good when I played it and I'm pretty bad. When Dad and Dewey played it, well! I kept looking in the corners to see where they had that dang turkey tied up!
I truly appreciate Dad, Alice and Dewey taking the time to show me a call is made also. Although I have no talent myself, I love beautiful wood and craftsmanship-and there was plenty of both at Dad's. Dad took me through the step-by-step process of how he makes a call and it was a wonderful experience-to see the starting point of a rough sawn board and the end product of something as lovely and graceful as a trumpet is a wonderful thing.... And it allows me to have a richer appreciation of the beautiful call I hold in my hand -the turkey I call in and kill with it will be far more signicant than it would have been otherwise.
But best of all, and something I value far more highly than this call, is the friendship of Dad, Dewey and Alice. They define 'Southern Hospitality"!
