#TBT: Drum major

Found in my father’s belongings, these photos of me as drum major in October 1978:

I was not drum major for my high school band, but David Flick, the drum major, was in the Homecoming court, so I subbed as drum major for one homecoming parade and football game.  I recall even now that I did not have the strength for it, nor the stamina. But I liked blowing the whistle and being the boss.
