Photo Finish Friday- Twirling

Baton twirling was a huge part of my childhood. I competed in several competitions a year, often traveling with the whole baton corp. We performed in parades, nursing homes, and fairs. Our group, "The Thunderbirds" often wore red sequined outfits (as you can see). I spent every Saturday for 8 years at practices that ran back-to-back in a dusty old building that was somehow regal and magical. High cealings meant I could practice my "turn-arounds" without worrying about hitting the cealing with my baton. I even twirled a fire-baton once. Once was enough. ~Karen

Ok Karen, I'm playing. My picture and short post is on my blog:

Funny, our pictures may have been taken around the same time, yet yours is in color and mine is not. Thanks for letting me play.
