though i was not cool enough to play drums, no i played the glockenspiel. i know, the what???? the bells.
heavy things they were. me, my maroon and gold bell bottom polyester uniform, hat, chin strap, feathery plume on top, shiny white pleather boots (fancy yes?) and these heavy set of bells strapped to my shoulders for marching. parades, and football game half-time shows. Mr Casano was our band leader, we called him "Mr. C" he was one cool guy. i found out after high school he got sick and passed away far too young. that is sad. a huge loss for his family and for the students that missed out on his instruction that i know he would have continued for many more years.... so this for him, mr.c, and for all us band "geeks" out there. i didn't continue in band in senior high since i then became a football cheerleader, but i screamed really loud for our band when they hit the field at halftime. they always rocked the house. my friend meredith sent me this today and somehow i needed it so. the universe reaches out and just hands you something as simple as this youtube video. thank you mere. xo happy friday everyone.
so here ya go. i love this band. these are the treadmil guys. remember them? if not that is a must click and watch too!
but as for this song, these words, "let it go this too shall pass" amen.
