Memorial Day Parade

On Memorial Day I finally got to see my brother in his Marching Band uniform (still haven’t seem him in the Concert Band outfit, which has a bow tie!). He played the snare drum with pizazz.  The Drury High School Band looked pretty spiffy, and was part of the small parade that marched down Main Street […]

If you read this blog regularly, you’ve probably noticed that I’m posting today’s Random Tuesday Thoughts later than I usually do.
