Paco on the drums – Tues. Oct. 4, 2016

Steve here:

Paco started playing percussion last year in 6th grade. He is really enjoying it and decided to try out for the school’s 7th grade jazz band. As an early holiday present we found a nearly new but 6 year old drum set on Craigslist so he could practice. Here he is playing it soon after we got it home and set up.

    Too bad Paco and our grandson Cam couldn’t be together. Cam really likes the drums.
    He is in the 8th grade. Steve got a really nice set. Did he find a sound proof room to practice in.
    I saw the video of their black lab wallowing in the puddle. The best part of labs is that they can shake off the mud and look quite presentable after being in the mud.

    Good luck with your drums, Paco.

    The video of Ruby wading in the mud in Davis (which follows the video of Paco on the drums) was taken 3 or 4 years ago when Steve and Erin were dog sitting my niece Janet and Steve’s (Janet’s husband) dog. Erin is very fond of Ruby.

    Paco’s room is in the basement of their house. I think that Paco has the run of the basement.

    The room is far from soundproofed, but it is in the basement. We’ll be experimenting with some blankets and sound-deadening materials. Excuse the mess in the room, he tossed everything on the floor to make room for the drums as soon as we got home.
