Limburger cheese

Fun rehearsal last night.

It is hard to beat well aged Sousa and food that smells like well aged feet.

Next week we will be down stairs at the Point Place VFW.

 

For those curious about the inscription on the music last night:

During World War I, John Philip Sousa was commissioned a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Naval Reserve and led the Navy Band at the Great Lakes Naval Station near Chicago, Illinois. Being independently wealthy, he donated his entire naval salary minus one dollar a year to the Sailors' and Marines' Relief Fund. After returning to his own band at the end of the war, he continued to wear his naval uniform for most of his concerts and other public appearances.
