Remember this picture of my dad?
Well, here's Bobby.

This is a Christmas gift for my dad, and I really hope he likes it. I printed the old photo of himself, and a photo similar to this and framed them both.
My dad was about 23 in his picture, and my brother just turned 25...so I felt it was fitting, BUT, my dad didn't have a sparkly kit. That's okay. I'll get over it.
Bobby's birthday was on the 23rd and, of course, it got me thinking all sappy and schmoozy, so in a plea with myself to avoid a trite nostalgia post plastered with baby photos, I'm just going to say how awesome of a brother he is. He's the only brother I have and with my sister on a mission right now, he's that much more important to me. The older we've gotten, the more I've realized how admirable he is. He works harder than anyone I know, aside from my dad (of course), and knows what he wants and is willing to work for it. He graduated from Berklee last May. I think that's when I really started to notice how dedicated and talented he truly is. I haven't been as appreciative of that as I should be.
Alright, alright...I'm done, I swear.
just to prove my point, here's Bobo winning the district final of the 2009 Guitar Center Drum Off in Denver.
