Default Hello again!

So I havent been here for a little while, but never forgot about this place. As some of you may know, I lost my house to a foreclosure about a year ago. Obviously things are rough these days for alot of good people that just cant seem to make things work.

I happened to join the ranks of folks that lost everything... wife, job, license, son, and a place to live. Thankfully my drums were kept safe at my Mom's house, with just enough room to be set up and played when the mood happened to arise. Its a bit cramped but I thank everything for having thst option. As bad as it sounds... I know that there are others out there that have less and it offers a bit of solice when I m feeling down.

I spent a few months living in my storage unit, then my Blazer, but its pretty damn cold here in South Jersey so I gave in and took a room at a family member's house. It kinda sux but its warm and comfortable so I guess its all good... lol!

Anyway I m rambling here but I (as always) have alot to say/offer so I m just glad to be able to say Hi to everyone. ....

HI!!!!

But to at least make a point, the drums helped me through this rough time and never left me, along with the feeling you can get by just jammin out! I m glad to be here and even gladder to be .... a...... DRUMMER!!! ttys, Ian

FWIW... welcome to the club. It's good to know that you are still optimistic and focusing on the positive. We certainly have been thrown some curve balls. Chin up boss.

Now I have about 3000 pages of forums to go through to catch up... or just pretend like its early 2009 and the year hasnt begun yet.... I ll go with that last idea I think.

As a fellow South Jerseyan I feel for you. Where about are you located? I'm right outside of Philly.

Welcome back Ian! I missed you and I often wondered what had happened to you.
I have many friends that have also lost big time recently.
It can only get better from here! Hang in there man!
I know what it is like to lose. I was wiped out in the late seventies for a few years. I never forgot how that felt. I have been fortunate and I have been spared hardship this time around but I have been doing all that I can for my less fortunate friends.
