All the bands were excellent, in my opinion, although Emily did point out they played fewer and easier songs. I have no idea. I left my hearing aids home and enjoyed myself immensely. The picture I regret not taking--the Percussion Ensemble, complete with Santa hats, except the director, who wore a grinch hat and a delightful accompanying grin.
The White Band.
Flutes are in the vicinity of the center right Poinsettia.
Emily is second row, second chair, this year.
You don't need to be blond to play flute,
except, it seems, to play
chairs one through three.
This young lady was on the other side of the podium.
Taking care of that hair must be difficult,
But isn't it magnificent!
Today the postal service brought me a package from my elf in Wisconsin. "Oh, Ann, you needn't have," I thought. I pulled several little parcels from the packing, and a big one. Little ones first, and they turned out to be marzipan. Ann knows I'd do a U-turn for marzipan. Isn't the Santa just a delight!
The big parcel was half a dozen suet cakes for my flying pigs. What a pleasant surprise.
