Me in 2019... i'm learning to skydive, doing my AFF Level 1-8 and then A License allowing me to jump anywhere in the world..

And what I'm jumping from... I thought this might be a new aircraft for me, but D-ISCO is ex- HA-ACO which I jumped exactly 13 years ago to this month also! Not a bad thing, good to be reunited! :D

This is myself, in my own air base with one of the crew members of the C130 hercules (when I was on active duty) and I was young, in civilian clothes (I was in a period of rest and when I was away from home I lived in the air base)

I dunno if I am me. For all I know I am something else. Perhaps a potted plant or a kettle.

 

With this in mind, I'll show people who are within my orbit.

 

Yolanda. A student. This shot taken 30 minutes ago at her gig. I  am so proud. She's coming for a lesson on Tuesday. I have a surprise for her. I am passing on a lovely Turkish cymbal. She needs it and I want her to own it. Plus I still have too much equipment. I teach her drum set and percussion. Mainly Brasilian and Afro Cuban on various instruments ftrom drum set to cuica.

This is Luna. Luna and I have been close for some time. Luna has only been to visit me at certain time when I was home and very sick. One day Luna knocked. I was too sick and didn't want to answer the door. Luna got impatient and kept knocking.

 

Luna stopped coming over when I was no longer that sick.

This is the Machine!!!! If I ever make him laugh, it often gets out of control. As can be seen. The Machine began with me when he was 3. He is now 12.

This is his reaction to the very silly word, paradiddle.

Perhaps it was the way I pronounced it?

Here is a hilarious 5 year old. She loves to wear my hats.

This is me on the left at a drum festival with the owner of the shop I taught for as senior teacher teaching drums and ethnic percussion. The shop did not survive covid. We are at a drum festival. I think I gave or wad supposed to give a master class. I can't remember.

This is Jeff. Jeff is a student and wonderful drummer. You can hear him on many TV shows such as Vampire diaries and many others. Jeff really wanted to interview me for his drumming podcast.

Another student, Luke. Another student who has gone on to acchieve wonderful success playing with The Preachers.

Myself on stage playing congas with a band while on a 2 day release from hospital. I have no memory of it. The device carrying my medicine to my heart through my chest cannot be seen. It's behind me. I was crazy. I ended up having 389 doses of chemo. I thought it wss only 290. My doctor disabused me of this a few months ago. 42 lumbar punctures. I thought it was only 34.

The following day I was back in hospital. I got out about 6 months later.

 

The bass player is in my own band now.

My own band. My 2nd drumming gig following my cancer. I can't afford to pay them to rehearse. We jam. My job here is to make the music work. I play an interesting enough funky groove and hold the time steady so they can be comfortable. It's my first time as leader.

 

 

The Band Without A Name.

Hello: 

I couldn't figure out how to upload a photo so I'll just say hi. When I'm not working on a model I'm an acquisitions editor in publishing (I created the Stackpole Military History Series). I'm also an author (mostly fantasy).

 

Cheers,
