Tuba Too Much...

While on our recent camping vacation we spent an afternoon looking around the town of Brenham, Tx. That's where the Bluebell Ice Cream factory is and they are shut down right now because of health problems. In the trendy little shops and restaurants that made up the old downtown area there were quite a few signs "We support Bluebell" or something like that it was a patriotic duty and they were oppressed and neglected.  Somehow that never caught on or got eclipsed by all the other voices hollering and raging over this and that.  There is a lot of that these days. 

I did take this photo of a photo that was posted in a shop window of the Brenham High School Band. It's old, I don't know what year. I think there was a historical note and I did not even read it but I sure like the three tuba players in this photo. If you want to talk about neglected and oppressed I know from long experience, three tubas, a band that size and all having bell front horns they got yelled at a lot for playing too loud. All they ever wanted was to be noticed, liked, and appreciated. It's all any of us ever want.
