Thumbs up Re: Hapless Holidays... a Rogers project.

Feel very lucky to say I called it quits after 35 years on the job at the end of 2017... really has not hit me yet. Still doing a little side technology consulting but my long days and on call 24x7x365 years are over!! This weekend I hope to get my drum projects organized a little better and take stock of what I have ahead.

ONE sweet Rogers project for sure!

Looks like a great project. Rogers are pretty rare compared to Ludwig. Good luck and I look forward to your updates.

I'd love to have a set of CLE made Rogers! Passed up a few Dayton era kits recently, but they were in pretty sorry shape.
Echoing others...Having unfinished projects means you have an active hobby and you are looking toward the future with optimism...it's a good thing for the mind, body, and soul!

Opened a ginger ale in honor of your post...ahhhh
