          Hey "Specialist Kat-Man", I donated a set of bongos to the All Ranks Club at some now-forgotten base during a crew rest-layover a few years ago - if you find them, maybe they'll hold you over until your drums arrive...

          Thank you for your service, look out for #1 and all your buds, and we all look forward to when you return and tell us all about it.

          Oh - and don't forget to "moon" them smarta$$ flyboys every chance you get...

              thanks for the support guys, i really appreciate it Someday, yea theirs alot of airforce guys here, alot of pretty good looking females too, not "desert queens" either, theyd be fine in the states too. Mike, thanks again man, i just picked up a decent set of speakers so i have a type of "amp" for them. you shoulda seen all the guitarists flock to me when they all found out i play the drums. theirs like 12 guys that said we gotta jam sometime, time will go really fast. thanks again guys. hopefully my hi-hats hold up that i got from ebay, if not ill have to pickup a cy-5 or something cheap. got my eye on a TD-8 for when we get home, cant wait

                Hey Rifleman. Use those drums to beat out a little Hammer of the Gods and let those insurgents know who's coming! As to those Air Force females...why do you think I was in the AF for 20 years?...hehe. That being said, my eldest daughter is a young Airman in the AF and if she deploys, know that my ever present eye is on you now...sorta like Sauron. You take care out there and come home safe!

                            It warms my heart to see that you young fellers are still listening to Rush and coppin' Peart. Rifleman, stay safe. Thanks for doin the work for us bro. It's appreciated. If you ever get to Kauai I'll buy you your first Maitai and hook you up with a local hottie.
