Thanks Carol!

I always wanted to study the cello, but hesitated due to concerns about my health ;D

This thread reminds me of the remark, attributed to Sir Thomas Beecham, addressed to a lady cellist with whose rehearsal performance he was displeased.

What did he say?
“Madam, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving pleasure to thousands - and all you can do is scratch it”

ROFL - what a brilliant comment. (Name dropping I knew his son ... albeit many years ago)

He is also credited with:

Mary had a little watch
She swallowed it one day
She took a box of Beecham's Pills
To pass the time away.

(in response to someone asking him whether he was embarrassed by the advertising jingles for Beecham's pills)
