Allen is going through his parents slides and sent some pictures to me. Here Gail and I are in Indianapolis Indiana in the summer of 1964. You can see again Gail with that little head band on, it just melted me every time. Our band went to the Memorial 500 race and marched in the parade and also the day of the race inside the track. The trip along with our trip to the state basketball tourney were the trips Gail and I were together on. Our band was very good and our uniforms were super. Along with what you see we also wore black shoes and white spates (sp) and the band looked very sharp. We also did very well where ever we marched. We took 2 or 3 coach buses on the trip. Gail's parents went as one of the couple chaperons but we made sure we were NOT on their bus!!!!
I worked the parking lot at the fair for 4 hours today. It was a bit cold. I debated before I left if I should wear long johns and finally I put some on. I would have frozen if I had not worn them. My back bothers me a some when I am walking or standing on parking lots for a long time so right now my back is sore. I have to keep reminding myself that old age is mostly in the mind.
Enough, I did not intend to blog again but I love that picture of us. I guess it brings back many many good memories.
