If I had a drumstick

Tin can improvise with a drumstick like nothing else – it rarely plays drums, it is a trombone mostly, or quickly becomes a clarinet, and it has even been a tuba and a guitar. God bless imagination. I read somewhere that Trombone Shorty used to parade around with his neighbor kids and they used a Big Wheel as a tuba and cardboard boxes as horns.

It just goes to reinforce the message that kids need very little, their minds will provide them with most of what they need.

    and ain’t that the truth. I think it’s too bad so many kids have so many manufactured toys these days that their creativity and imagination can easily be quashed.

    Everyone thinks we’re kidding when we say no presents for birthday and winter holidays but believe me that boy wants only to live in his imagination. And we don’t want to clean up the other stuff!
