    HA!! But no - my wife actually made the comment the other day that it looks
    like the snare shelf in my drum room was filling up. Ack!!!! And all this
    time I didn't think she noticed half the stuff I sneak down there!!!! My
    cover is blown!!
    Hence, time to scale back (and make room for more??!).

    Ah Ha! More data. They may appear oblivious. But, they are so patient and
    bide their time, waiting for just the perfect moment to slip in an almost
    innocuous comment and ....WHAM! It hits you that they know all, see all,
    and really are in charge of all *their* realm. The resident goddess.

    When you decide to get rid of one of the Gretsch sets preferably either in
    Burnt Orange or Rosewood in a deep 22 bass, standard 8, 10, 12 depths, 14ft,
    16ft I'd better be first in line!

    Hey, Mark! Not sure if I mentioned it, but I am a licensed and
    registered titanium removal agent. Any time you feel the need to dispose of
    that 6.5x13 Ti, you know who to call. :)

  17. Boy, can I relate to that one! I'm building some extra shelves but my wife
    would rather see some snares wind up on Ebay.

    Let's never have our wives get together to complain... :)
