in all the years i've been on this forum no posts have made such a lumpin my throat as the ones on this thread. thanks so much guys. my wife is reading them too and she loves you lot.
i've already decided that my kids are going to grow up in a house of drums. when they go on their first playdate in a few years time i want them to be surprised that the family they visit don't have a few kits around (like a washing machine).
