Yes, I was a band geek. Actually I was in the drumline. My senior year I was co-captain of the drumline.
That was the year we got to march in the Orange Bowl Parade. (The photo above is not from the Orange Bowl Parade. Just a parade down National Ave. in Brazil.)
This is what it looked like when we pulled away from the school on December 28, 1995
And this was December 30, 1995. Not bad for some hick kids from a farm town in Indiana. The kid in the picture above is Jason Theiman. He was a good friend of my sister, Cami's. He was pretty cool for a freshman. Although the coolest freshmen at our school that year were Eric B. Jon H. & Doug L. (Of course that could be because they were in the drumline, so I knew them best. I used to call them the "baby boys" but they didn't seem to mind. I was a senior and I actually spoke to them. That was all that mattered I guess.)
The biggest bummer of the trip for me was that mom chose to chaperone. Luckily, she pretty much stayed out of my hair. Still, it was embarassing having mom chaperone when I was a legal adult.
Nope that's not Bo Derek. That's Shiloh.
Okay, Cami is either shaking her hair out like a wet puppy, or she didn't want her photo taken.
