Yes, I’m a Band Geek

I am a band geek.. and there’s definitely no shame in admitting that. I marched a bunch of shows throughout my seven years of marching band.

The below video is from Spring 1997.. my freshmen year at Tech. It happens to be the last light show performed under the direction of Keith Bearden and, at the time of this post’s writing, the last light show performed by the Goin’ Band. The Star Wars/Star Trek light show is one of my top two favorite shows I’ve marched.

Ah, nostalgia..

I’ve Been Tagged!

My lovely wife tagged me in a recent blog entry, so I figured I’d better follow through or face the wrath. 😉

The object of the picture tag is to:

  1. Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer
  2. Select the 4th picture in the folder
  3. Explain the picture
  4. Tag 4 people to do the same

NO CHEATING! (cropping, editing, etc!)


This is a picture of Monica and our niece Madison from January 2006. Kim and Madison were visiting us in Lubbock, and this picture was taken during that weekend.

So now I get to tag four people to do this same thing: Kim, mjp, Ben, Amanda. Tag! You’re it.
