Texans Rejoice At 1/8 Inch Of Rain

Time Life: The Good Old Days

Nope, it’s not Texas, and it’s not rain, although we could use it.

I can’t tell you the last time I wore a smile so big as those baton twirlers, who seem tickled pink.

The contest took place in Soldier Field, Chicago in 1957.

I hope no noggins were injured from errant batons.

These days, I imagine they’d have to wear helmets and sign a non-litigation form.

Ah, freedom!

  1. That is a shame about the rain, we have some flooding with more rain on the way. I am sure you are right about baton tossing today. Helmets would be the least of the mandates. Is that a marching band in your header pic? Haven’t you had that before?
