365 MA members is outta o' sight!
That's one member playing a sweet Masters drum for everyday of the year! LOL!
I know exactly how you feel about the Cardinals! They have been a "divisional" thorn in the Cubs side for all my life.
I'm doing well, and I'm glad to hear that things are coming together very nicely with your band's lineup.
Like you said, you can then concentrate all your efforts on the music itself.
364 MA members is phenomenal!
We haven't started the actual remodeling itself, but plenty to do before we begin. Glad to read that everyone is doing well. I am too. It's very cool that Skeld (Paul) bought the Sheer Blue MLX kit that he saw at Music Go Round. You're right, he can decide if he feels like playing a birch kit or a maple kit on any given day. Maybe someday down the line I wouldn't mind owning both a birch kit and a mahogany kit to go along with my MRX. Even if I never bought another kit again I know that I'm really set with my MRX, but it would be neat to have all 3 "flavors" to choose from.
362 MA members is downright amazing!
Sounds like you got a fantastic deal on your new 13" AA Sabian Hi Hats Lonny! Sorry to hear that Frieda wasn't to pleased with your recent purchase, but $149 for a pair of hats of that caliber is a great deal. Besides, it's not like you are spending that amount (or more) every month on you drums. At least I know that I'm not. I've been super busy recently working around the house, trying to get it ready for a big remodeling job we are looking to have done either this summer or early next fall. Unfortunately, that hasn't left much time at all for being on the PDF. Definitely gonna watch the drum off later tonight between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! Should be good for some laughs.
360 MA members is awesome. We've come full circle, if we were measured in "degrees"! LOL!
Always good to see you Lonny!
Man, I've had a busy week. I've been remodeling our bathroom, so I've haven't had any time at all to be on the PDF. I still have some finishing touches to work on, and a second coat of paint to apply to the walls and trim. I'm really trying hard to not make a mess as I go along.
The Cubs are currently loosing their series with the Brewers this weekend. The Cubs organization and the City of Chicago celebrated Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary this week. The Cubs, as a team, didn't start playing there until 1916, so I imagine that they will celebrate the team's actual 100th anniversary in 2016.
Both the Bulls and the Blackhawks are fighting for their lives in their respective playoff series. All of the sports talk in the city is focused on those two teams, because both of the city's baseball teams are in the process of rebuilding, and are a mess.
359 MA members glad that KISS' R'N'R HOF induction ceremony tonight went so peacefully! LOL!
We've finally got two consecutive days of 60°+ weather here in Chi-Town. Hooray!
I saw a story tonight on one of the national network evening newscasts about the ABQ Police Department being reprimanded by the Dept. of Justice. The story was discussing how the A.P.D. had the highest rate in the country of its officers using deadly force in apprehending suspects. They showed clips from a press conference with the D.O.J and the new Chief of Police, and some clips of protesters marching downtown. Yikes! Don't these officers have tasers?
If the A.P.D. ever show up at one of your jam nights again, whatever you do, don't anger them! LOL!
Are you going to start a new "Red Glass" thread in the Masters Section now that Aces has been banned?
358 MA members is downright incredible!
I'm doing fine. I hope that everything is well with you.
How's your wrist? I know that you and the guys are jamming tomorrow.
I read on Yahoo Sports that Kershaw has a swollen muscle in his back, and was placed on the 15 day DL for the first time in his career.
The L.A. Angels "of Anaheim" (LOL!) got the best of the Dodgers today 2-6, and the Chicago Cubs "of Wrigleyville" beat Arizona 9-8.
Marv's Gators got into the Final Four! He's got to be thrilled about that. Our neighbors north of the "Cheddar Curtain" (Wisconsin) also made it in.
I had heard the the Dodgers had won both of their games Down Under. Which is good, since they counted in the standings.
I believe the the Cubs open their season against the Pirates on Monday the 31st.
It was another cold day here in Chicago. With the wind chill it feels like 11° outside. We actually had a light dusting of snow come through overnight.
Come on spring! It's time to turn up the temperature outside! LOL!
hey nova.,if you ever need a guitar player!?.,i might be available...
356 MA members recovering from a wicked Corned Beef and cabbage hangover! LOL!
I hope that you and yours had a Happy St. Paddy's Day yesterday Lonny! We had our Corned Beef dinner on Saturday night out at a Irish pub/restaurant called Mulligan's. It was so good, and the portions are so big that we all have leftovers. I even managed to have a good ole' Shamrock Shake from MickeyD's for dessert that night.
Here's hoping that that my Cubbies aren't such a complete train wreck this season! LOL!
355 MA members are licking their chops, in anticipation of a delicious St. Paddy's Day dinner!
Ouch Lonny! I read about your fall on your left wrist. I hope that when you go see the doctor for x-rays tomorrow, it's only a mild sprang and nothing more. We warmed up on Monday, but last night we 3" or so of an icy/snow mix. Our 10 day forecast has our daily temps going up and down like a meteorological roller coaster! LOL!
Head on over for some homemade Shamrock Shakes, complete with mint extract and green food coloring.
I'm telling ya, it's definitely good for what ails ya'! LOL!
