History Was Made

It hasn't rained in 5 months, we're in drought mode. That ended Thursday with a huge storm that knocked out power at Drew's school, just in time for his spring concert. As the saying goes, "The show must go on." They performed in the cafeteria under back up lights.

Summer Resounding!

Deir In De

A Hard Day's Night

It was hot, steamy and kinda dark. But I had a great view for taping on a stair case........we haven't seen rain since.

Coconut Head!

Band camp was this week for next years incoming freshman. I asked one of the tubas, why coconut head? He said matter of factly, "because his hair looks like a coconut." Silly me for not noticing.
