    Default Sorry for the Long Absence

    My best to all Drumchatters, and I ask for your grace in accepting my apologies for disappearing for so long. I can give all kinds of reasons for my absence, but just let me say that I have missed being able to talk drums with folks that understand that need.

    I'll need to keep this short, because I have a meeting at the church tonight, but I look forward to meeting all the new folks here (new to me), as well as reconnecting with some familiar folks.

    All the best to my fellow drummers!

    Same here. I bid the forums a quiet farewell many years ago, but now I'm where I dreamt I'd be, so I figured why not come back?

    I'm glad I came back at the right time.

    Bob - There is no reason you need to apologize for your absence. A lot of us here heard of your circumstances and we completely understand.

    I've just felt like one family member has been missing. And that person is you, my friend!

    Man, it's going to be awesome having you back posting again. I've really missed you A LOT!! You're wisdom, guidance and experience. I really value your friendship here.

    Welcome back!!
