Magoo's Swan Song

Magoo has never been a parade guy.  I can remember taking him down to the Memorial Day Parade when he was three or four and him being bored out of his mind.

I couldn't blame him.  It's kinda a boring parade.  It lacks pizazz.  I know it's supposed to be more about respecting the troops and not pizazz, but a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, yanno.

However, this year we went to the parade because Magoo was playing in the marching band!  He didn't want to, but since we were around and he was finishing up clarinet altogether, it was encouraged.  I wanted him to have the experience.  Maybe he would love it?  Maybe the experience would reignite his love of clarinet?

He did it. 
He did great.
It's over.
And it did not reignite any passion for the instrument or band.

So that's that.
Good job, Magoo.  Way to suck it up and get it done!

Hope you all have a great weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping in!
