Ringo's and Wendell's Birthdays

Today is the day that our cousin Wendell turns 10 and Ringo Starr turns 80. We figured Ringo already has plenty of drums, so we thought of buying a drum set for Wendell, but we didn't know what size to get her.  And her parents would never forgive us.

Oh, and thank you, Ringo, for being a few months older than me. I remember walking into Sunset Sound for a recording session back in 1973, not knowing who the artist was to be; and seeing a trap kit with plain old stenciled letters on it that clearly read: 

RINGO STARR 

THE BEATLES 

…and thinking, Ohh, that’s kind of a big deal.
