On the subject of other hobbies, music is a big hobby for me. My wife and I are in church choir and the handbell choir at our church. We are also in the local Panamania steel drum band. I play the bass steel drums. They can only hold three notes each, so it takes six full sized 55 gal. oil drums to allow me a full octave of notes. It’s a lot of fun, but it also takes a lot of practice. Photos below.

P.S. The bell choir started practicing again tonight - wearing face masks and playing stations six feet apart! Down to 7 ringers now - a few chose not to return. Now two octaves instead of three. Many of us have totally different bells. What was that old Chinese curse? “May you live in interesting times.” Yeah, it is getting real interesting.
