    I hope you can avoid it Dyl. I took a test and came back negative, but I did have some sinus inflammation so I played it safe and stayed at home. I have a flight next Monday and I just hope the airport part doesn't manage to infect me. I'm sure in your line of work, avoiding close contact is nigh impossible, but maybe you'll escape unscathed.

    I was flying on average twice a week most of last year. Never got sick. If you don't eat at the airport and wash your hands, you should be fine. I went out to eat a lot on vacation; I think that's where I got it.

    Thanks K. My department has taken some steps to mitigate infection but like you said, sometimes it’s impossible.

    I got covid in November and my department told me it wasn't work related. Two weeks of PTO down the drain for mandatory quarantine.

    When I got Covid last year (everyone’s first go ‘round), being out sick didn’t count against our sick incentive (I’m VERY proud of never calling in sick) but now… guys are being forced out to quarantine (test results don’t matter) and it’s now being counted as sick.

    I've talked before about my wife being a classically trained percussionist with two music degrees: one in performance and one in teaching. She's an outstanding musician but drum set played a very small part in her degree since it's kind of a specialized area. I think she took lessons for one semester and it basically never came up again. She got hired to play the Sound of Music this month and for the first time since college she's having to play the drum set part. It's been so much fun helping her develop her set up for the gig, experimenting with cymbals and drums and beaters and tuning to determine the sounds she wants for the room and the music. We've also gone over a lot of technique and technical points that don't come up with other percussion instruments. It's a ton of fun to get to share a deep appreciation and understanding of music and percussion with your partner!

    Now there's a drum kit that's outside the box. Definitely an interesting set up.

    The angle of the photo makes it look like the snare is beyond the kick. It's positioned correctly.

    It's an early '70s 3-ply Ludwig.

    I really hope CoVid gets aids and dies by now! I just miss having a social life where everything doesn't become cancelled because of lockdown, or someone either having it or being a close contact. And the vaccinations make my immune system go nuts - I got my third Moderna shot yesterday, went to bed early, slept for 15 hours, and still I feel like I've been hit by a bus (so I'm stuck at home, in stead of going out for oysters and beers with my best old friend tonight ).
