Wow a drummer huh? That sure is interesting. You have done a lot of things on this list!

Must be my age!
I was thinking that very same thing, while I was completing the list. There would have been less things I'd done if I'd been 50 or 40 0r 30 when I went though it.

Thanks for reading, girasole!
