Mad Crazy Drumming Skills

I have a tendency to play the air-drums while running. My friend, Ben, from Triplet taught me a few beats when I was in Portugal. Jesse Borden made me two beautiful African djembes that I'm still learning to play. So my church put an old practice drum kit in my office! (It's missing some things, though, like...cymbals). I pretty much want to be this little kid.

Your Junior Miss sounds fun. I think mine was quite a bit different from yours (like I did it when I was 17 and 18) shhh!

Hey Nelly!
Happy Birthday!!
That's funny about the air drums. I kind of do that at traffic lights when I'm driving. And use the brake as the bass drum pedal.

God bless and have a great day.

Break pedals for the kick, Bruno? You're perpetrating the Portuguese highway-danger-stats! But it still makes me laugh and miss you and Portugal.

I know, I know, Lisa! I'm sorry for the break, blog-master-B. You're all the way out in the wild in Tanzania, and you still find a way to post. How do you do that? It was too good to see you in Pasadena last week.
