The Queen

bentleyAs Air Force One arrives at Heathrow Airport , President Obama strides to a warm and dignified reception from the Queen.

They are driven in a 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London , where they change to a magnificent 17th century carriage hitched to six white horses. They continue on towards Buckingham Palace , waving to the thousands of cheering Britons; all is going well.

imageSuddenly the right rear horse lets fly with the most horrendous earth shattering fart ever heard in London . The smell is atrocious and both passengers in the carriage must use handkerchiefs over their noses. The fart shakes the coach, but the two dignitaries of State do their best to ignore the incident.

The Queen turns to President Obama, ” Mr. President, please accept my regrets… I am sure you understand there are some things that even a Queen cannot control.”

Obama, always trying to be “Presidential,” replied, “Your Majesty, do not give the matter another thought… Until you mentioned it, I thought it was one of the horses.”

    While much of this 2011 article is still proving to be true. However, the Grenadilla shortage has not been proven and in fact both Conn and Pan American had Grenadilla clarinet models in the market at the same time as the Cocobolo, “Violin Finish” 68N was. Additionally, Cocobolo wood was not used for airplane propellers as it’s too hard. It was used for ships. Based on a serial number survey of Pan American instruments currently underway. This clarinet and it’s companion oboe were manufactured between 1950 and 1954 supporting the NAMM understanding. More can be read about the Pan American study in the trumpetmaster, saxontheweb and horn-u-copia forums. There are current Pan American serial number dating systems on the Conn Loyalist website for brass and saxophones. The woodwinds and trombones are still in process.
