I got myself a used LP conga yesterday evening. Fiberglass, about 11 1/2 " in diameter. It has a nice ringing sound (but not too ringy) on the open tones. I'm not really sure if it is supposed to be a conga or a quinto. I can't get enough hours in on drumset to acquire any decent chops. Conga is quiet enough to practice anywhere. I should get a Gajate bracket so I can play cowbell with my foot.

Ron is going to have me reading Jonathan Williams today; the king of Southern logopeia. I've owned his selected pomes for I don't now how long. One of those books I was barely conscious of owning, but there it was, on my shelf.
