well, had a birthday today. the big 50! had a pretty exciting day. lunch with my wife and youngest daughter. hit some thrift stores sorting through small treasures. had spaghetti dinner (also german chocolate cupcakes) with my wife, oldest daughter, son and grandson.

recently, my wife got wind of the 50th anniversary supras and said I just had to have one since I was hitting 50 as well. already have a 64 supra. so this one completes the 50 year package deal. decided to go with the 6.5 version. 300 of these were made. it was waiting on me when I got home this afternoon. this could not have happened without the help of steve(dimag333) from russo music. he went way over and above to make this happen for me and I cannot thank him enough. the drum is beautiful. me,not so much!

heading to the Ludwig factory in Monroe tomorrow to finish off the big celebration! can't wait.

50… is the new 40, so if you want... you can have another mid-life crisis.

Happy Birthday Mike

Hey a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, my drum brother. I hope that drum is a pleasure to play, and I hope you gave your wife a big kiss of thanks! Play it in good health, buddy.
