Default My wife strikes again

OK, I have posted several threads of my wifes generosity in buying me drums: and here is yet another.

Last year she bought me a set of Gretsch catalina maples with hard cases and a pearl copper snare drum.

This year she bought me a Zildjian 18" K custom dark crash for my birthday (Dec 14th)

And yesterday she surprised me, (REALLY Surprised me) with a Yamaha dtxpress electronic drum kit, so that I can play in the house again. (We have a room above her folks place), I Love my wife :)

So Now I have 4 drum sets and 27 cymbals............ and counting ;)

Merry christmas! What a nice surprise. Of course now she has some serious dirt on you... anytime you don't want to do something all she has to say is "what about that time I bought you a drum set?" Kidding of course. You're lucky to have such a lovely wife.

LOL, yes I know, I have to quit whining now when I don't wanna do something..lol. She's a keeper.

She has 4 horses as I think I mentioned in the past, so she also has a very expensive hobby.... More so then we of the percussionary persuasion.

Yes, drums are by far cheaper than horses and don't need a daily preoccupation - lol

...when you have a spouse that tolerates your percussive obsessive disorder, you are lucky.

When your spouse enables you by heaping these great drum blessings on you, you are more than just lucky.

May your spouse obsession long outlive your drum obsession.

Good on you Bro.

You are indeed a lucky man my friend, funny thing I have 4 sets one being a yamaha dtxpress2 and am embarassed to admit not sure how many cymbals I have but I bet its somewhere near 27 I must dig them all out and count them now. Big difference was I bought them all and had to buy my van as well. You must certainly keep this fair maiden.

Congrats on the new kit. I too have a wonderfully understanding wife who keeps balance in our marriage by having a very expensive quilting and fabric habit.

Yeah, we do our best to support each other, her next purchase is a truck to haul the horse trailer.......so I should be able to secure another crash for that right?... ;) lol.

She's definately a keeper, and not only does she buy me drums, she's a phenominal cook.

Your wife is a keeper!

Not all women are that nice.

I am lucky too, that I have a wife who enables my drum addition!

It is also nice that you appreciate her. Do not take a good wife for granted.

I have had a bad one, and count my lucky stars every day that I have a GREAT wife!

Your wife is cute, too!!!!

Mike
